Solid hardcover.; First in Merejkowski's trilogy, a historical romance of the Roman Emperor, Julian the Apostate, who in the fourth century AD sought to revive the worship of the Olympians after Christianity had been adopted by Constantine the Great. "Here the theme, a favorite one of Merejkowski, was the undying struggle between Greek polytheism, with its emphasis on happiness and beauty, and Christianity, with its repetition of suffering and death. Apart from his intrinsic merits as a writer, Merejkowski is notable as marking the departure from the traditional humanitariansim and realism of Russian literature, and with Solgub he is to be considered the founder of Russian modernism."; A Trilogy (Christ and Anti-Christ); Vol. 1; vii, 414 pages.
