    Set in the first century A.D. in Rome, this Henry Sienkiewicz novel tells the compelling love story of Marcus Vinicius, a young Roman officer, and Lygia, a captive Christian. Throughout the novel we see two vastly different sides of Rome – the life of Roman aristocracy and that of Christians. Marcus has grown up a pagan and lived his life on the side of Roman aristocracy; his uncle, Petronius, is one of Nero's confidants. Through these and other characters we see what Rome was like under Nero's rule, the power given an emperor, and the extravagances afforded the favored. Through Lygia, Marcus after his conversion to Christianity, and other characters, we view the appalling persecution of Christians and understand what it means to be a true follower of Christ.
