AD 361-363), the last pagan emperor of Rome, noted for his frontal and self-conscious challenge to Christianity.

The book also contains treatments of Julians laws, inscriptions, coinage, as well as his artistic programme. Across nineteen papers, international specialists in the field of Late Antique Studies offer original interpretations of an extraordinary figure: emperor and philosopher, soldier and accomplished writer. Julian, his life and writings, are here considered as parts of the tumult in politics, culture and religion during the Fourth Century AD. New light is shed on Julians distinctive literary style and imperial agenda. The volume also includes an up-to-date, consolidated bibliography.
