Julian by GORE VIDAL : abridged in ten parts by STEWART EVANS
The Emperor Julian, sole Augustus of the Eastern and Western Roman Empires in the politically and philosophically turbulent latter half of the fourth century AD, is one of history's most fascinating lesser-known architects.
Perhaps the only truly intellectual Roman Emperor, his volatile mind was constantly torn between a love of logic and the seduction of magic. This is a very human account of his reign told in the form of a posthumous memoir. Cast for the week:
