ANDERSON, GRAHAM.
Philostratus. Biography and Belles Lettres in the Third Century A.D.
London: Croom Helm, 1986. 0709905750. 1st edition. "Sophists and holy men are alike fascinating and characteristic celebrities in the social and intellectual life of the early Roman Empire, and Philostratus' treatment of both betrays his own distinctive personality, as a superficial dilettante and a fascinating snob. Through his eyes we have a priceless picture of rhetorical schools and their rivalries in the era surrounding the Life of Herodes Atticus. He also gives us a more massive and bizarre version of the career of the celebrated first-century holy man Apollonius of Tyana, long loathed by his later Christian press as a Pagan Christ." Pp.xii/322, large tear to rear free endpaper. Black cloth, dustwrapper has a removable clear protective wrap. G+/G+.
