About this title: Yale historian Ramsay MacMullen investigates the transition from paganism to Christianity between the fourth and eighth centuries. He explores the influences of paganism and Christianity upon each other--an influence that lasted far longer than previously believed. The victory of the Christian church, MacMullen explains, was one not of obliteration but of widening embrace and mutual assimilation. Illustrated.
