About the Book
As a meeting-point of many civilisations, as the first centre of Gentile Christianity and the home of some of the greatest Christian teachers, as the capital of the Roman East for seven centuries, Antioch has peculiar claims upon our interest. Inferior to Alexandria and Carthage during the early Empire, it was destined to outlive both . When the Egyptian city had sunk to the rank of a minor town, far inferior to the new 'victorious capital' of the Fatimite caliphs, and the glory of Roman Africa was a mass of desolate ruins, Antioch again became for over a century and a half the home of an able and warlike line of princes, an ecclesiastical metropolis, and again resumed its old position as an outpost of European civilisation against the hordes of the Far East.
