The History of European Morals

“History of European Morals From Augustus to Charlemagne” in 2 volumes is one of the best-known works by the Irish historian William Edward Hartpole Lecky. The book features the changes that have taken place in the moral standard and in the moral type in Europe from the ancient Rome to the early Middle Ages. By the first, the author understands the degrees in which, in different ages, recognized virtues have been enjoined and practiced, and, by the second, the relative importance that in different ages has been attached to different virtues. This carefully edited collection has been designed and formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
