The City of Delight

by Elizabeth Miller

This stupendous subject the author has treated with her now well-known grasp and power. Pestilence-stricken Ascalon; Jerusalem in its dire plight between warring factions within and the besieging force of Romans without; the emotional conflict between old Israelitish beliefs and the new Christianity; a sense of thronging multitudinous life, of Jew and Persian and Roman, Pagan and Christian, soldier and lord; the canvas is vast and the colors dramatic.
