The Making of Late Antiquity
This book explores the significant changes that took place in the classical world between the late second and early fourth centuries. A new elitism in religion had its parallel in society as a whole and a wide polarization of the wealthy and the poor developed, as unbridled ambition made the sharp distinction between the rulers and the ruled. --From publisher's description.
