Famously sceptical about Christianity, unexpectedly sympathetic to the barbarian invaders and the Byzantine Empire, constantly aware of how political leaders often achieve the exact opposite of what they intend, Gibbon was alert to both the broad pattern of events and the significant revealing detail.

Attacked for its enlightened views on politics, sexuality and religion, the first volume was widely acclaimed for the elegance of its prose.
