Our continuing chat on Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire resumes on January 3, a postponed event from November 15.
Chapters XVII to XXI: Constantine and his family down to Julian's time in Gaul (359); religious controversies. Some people might want to skip Chapter XXI, as suggested by Bingley: “The section on Julian is mainly a summary of Ammianus, whom we read, through the Julian novel, quite recently, so [people who participated in that chat] might want to do some judicious skipping here.”
As a refresher, below are blogs by Bingley and myself on the subject:
