This book contains a fresh re-assessment of the one of the most significant figures of her time and questions: - Was Julia more powerful than earlier empresses? - Did she really promote despotism? - How seriously is her literary circle to be taken? As part of a dynasty which used force and violence to preserve its rule, she was distrusted by its subjects; as a Syrian, she was the object of prejudice; as a woman with power, she was resented. On the other hand, Domna was the centre of a literary circle considered highly significant by nineteenth-century admirers.
