From the Publisher
Did Trajan really deserve his reputation as the embodiment of all
imperial virtues? Why did Dante, writing in the Middle Ages, place
him in the sixth sphere of Heaven among the Just and Temperate
In this, the only biography of Trajan available in English, Julian
Bennett rigorously tests the substance of this glorious reputation.
Surprisingly, for a Roman emperor, Trajan comes through the test
with his reputation relatively intact.
