Description: In this lavishly illustrated and arresting study, Warwick Ball reveals Rome's fascination with the East and the dramatic influence of Near Eastern culture on the Roman world. He explains Rome's obsession with the Eastern world as a desire for the new over the old, of the mundane over the exotic; a love affair that even took literal form in the story of Antony and Cleopatra. The Roman East had an immense impact on Europe. Christianity is the most obvious one, but there are many others from Syrian emperors of Rome to Oriental architecture, religious and intellectual influences.

Rome in the East presents a comprehensive and coherent study of the history, architecture and archeology of the Eastern provinces of the Roman Empire, of Roman penetration beyond the frontiers, and of ensuing Eastern influences that brought about Rome's own transformation.
