The Durants seem to have been very unbiased historians with the ability to see the irony and the unintentional humor in human history from the ancient through the Napoleonic years. I have already read all the volumes twice and fully hope to read them again. ( )

Durant devotes this volume to the Dark Ages. He begins with Constantine's conversion and ends with the first flickers of the Italian Renaissance. Along the way, barbarians arise, Rome falls, Charlemagne appears, Thomas Aquinas writes. Durant manages to compress a vast amount of information into his book. His writing always pleases. ( )

In the year 335 the Emperor Constantine, feeling the nearness of death, called his sons and nephews to his side, and divided among them, with the folly of fondness, the government of the immense Empire that he had won.
