Here is history - from the Crucifixion to the fall of Jerusalem - seen through the eyes of a young Jewish arena-cleaner who is placed by Chance in the very womb of Christianity, at the very heart of Imperial Rome. In this prophecy-driven tale of love, longing, and revenge meet Paul of Tarsus (St. Paul), the gospelers Mark and Luke, Pontius Pilate, Caligula, the generals Vespasian and Titus, three notorious Greek anti-Semites - and some remarkable women. Accompany Paul on the road to Damascus and share his last voyage. Witness the burning of Nero's Rome, the horrors of the Roman/Jewish war, the life and death of a great black gladiator, and, seated beside Caligula, observe the strange encounter between a man named Androcles and a lion.
