Two Orations of the Emperor Julian
The Emperor Julian's Oration to the Sovereign Sun and The Emperor Julian's Oration to the Mother of the Gods. With a copious introduction, in which some of the greatest arcana of the Grecian theology are unfolded. "The Emperor Julian, the author of the two following Orations, is well known in the character of a Sovereign and an Apostate which he once sustained, but very few are acquainted with him in the characters of a Theologist and Philosopher, which he displays through the whole of his works, in a manner by no means contemptible or weak." "Julian, however, appears to have possessed as much of the philosophical genius as could possibly be the portion of an Emperor of Rome, and was doubtless as much superior to any other Emperor, either prior or posterior to him, as the philosophy and theology which he zealously professed transcend all others in dignity and worth.
