The guiding star of this site is fidelity to Rome.

From torrid south to frozen north,
The wave harmonious stretches forth,
Yet strikes no chord more true to Rome’s,
Than rings within our hearts and homes.
Cardinal Wiseman

Dion and the Sibyls

Miles Gerald KEON$34.97

13 - Dion and the Sibyls “The greatest historical novel ever written.” There is no other way to describe Miles Gerald Keon’s 1866 classic. If Quo Vadis, Ben Hur or Fabiola have brought you pleasure and profit, Dion and the Sibyls will surpass them all. Set in Rome at the time of Christ, the plot brings together all the chief historical persons of the day in events which thrill, entertain and inform while never ceasing to be credible. Watch the valiant Paulus Æmilius, nephew of the triumvir, subdue the Sejan horse, save the gold of Germanicus Cæsar, triumph in battle, save his sister abducted by the tyrant Tiberius and fall hopelessly in love with the bewitching Israelite Esther whose faith forbids her to marry him. Listen to his friend Dionysius the Areopagite debating the existence of God and the immortality of the soul with the greatest minds of the court of Augustus. Be astonished at the prophecies of the mysterious and ageless Sibyl.
