Quo Vadis: A Narrative of the Time of Nero
1898. Sienkiewicz is regarded as the most outstanding and prolific Polish writer of the second half of the nineteenth century. The winner of the Nobel Prize in 1905, he is best known for his epic historical novel Quo Vadis, which depicts early Christianity and the persecutions. The story follows Vinicius, a soldier, who, in order to win the love of Ligia, a Christian, must come to understand the true meaning of her religion, even as Rome sinks under the excesses of Nero and Christians are thrown to the lions.
