Americans need hardly be told that 1776 was a year of miracles. Among its wonders was the publication of Edward Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. To celebrate the bicentennial of Gibbon’s great history, eminent scholars from throughout the world met in Rome, under the auspices of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, to discuss Gibbon’s life, work, character, and intellectual influences. This book collects their essays, together with an introduction by Myron Gilmore.
