In this work Libanius, the greatest orator of late antiquity, appeals to the tolerance of the Christian emperor Theodosius I and stresses the importance of the pagan temples for the culture and the identity of the surrounding regions.
This volume contains the first German translation of a text in which Libanius, the greatest orator of late antiquity, appeals to the Roman emperor Theodosius to gain his support for the preservation of pagan temples which were threatened by fanatical Christians. Libanius appeals to the tolerance of the Christian emperor and stresses the importance of the temples for the culture and the identity of the surrounding regions. Following an introduction to the author and the work, the original text, the translation and detailed annotations, the volume presents a series of essays which describe the legal, cultural, religious and historical text of Libanius' oration and thus enable the first comprehensive appraisal of this oration.
