Summary
Quo Vadis, best known for its star-studded 1951 film version, was first published in 1896 and contributed to the author's Nobel Prize for Literature of 1905. Set in the latter years of the reign of Roman Emperor Nero, the plot concerns the love between a young Christian woman, Lygia, and a Roman patrician, Marcus Vinicius. Sienkiewicz was said to have been inspired to write the novel when visiting the Chiesa del Domine Quo Vadis, and the novel is strongly imbued with a pro-Christian sentiment, along with many detailed descriptions of the opulence and debauchery of Nero's Rome. It is informative, exciting and ultimately uplifting!

Accurate, historical setting, and plot. Two central characters are very difficult to like, but if your goal is to live within the world of ancient Rome, you couldn’t pick a better book.
