Gallienus: A Study in Reformist and Sexual Politics
Gallienus was a pivotal figure in Roman history. He stopped the persecution of the Christians, yet was not himself a Christian. His bizarre lifestyle antagonised the traditionalists. It is said he dressed his soldiers up as women. Inflation ran riot. But he kept the core of the empire intact against Persian and barbarian invasions. In 'Gallienus' John Bray reconstructs the life of this often unfairly maligned emperor.
