About the Author

Chris Doyle currently lectures in Ancient and Medieval History at the National University of Ireland, Galway, Republic of Ireland. He is interested in the art and religion of the late antique period, and has published on stylistic developments in late Roman coinage. He is presently working on two books: a study of rebellion and dissent during the Christianization of the Roman world; and a biography based on his grandmother's experiences as a frontline nurse with the British army in North Africa, Italy, and Greece during the Second World War.


"Chris Doyle takes up an unenviable task in reviewing the life and reign of the much-despised emperor Honorius. His study presents a very good and much fairer evaluation of this controversial ruler, bringing him out from under the shadow of his general Stilicho and his sister Galla Placidia, and showing how he survived and preserved the western Roman Empire for nearly 30 years against long odds." - Richard Billows, Columbia University, USA
