The obvious issue to address in reviewing the 3500 page unabridged edition of Gibbon s masterpiece is whether the maniacal effort to attack such a work could ever justify preferring it over a single volume abridged edition That is an easy call This work is occasionally tough often exciting but in every sense a necessity over any attempts to edit down Gibbon I tried the 1200 page Modern Library edition and found it fragmented and hard to follow simply because Gibbon is telling a story that defies attempts to hone it downIs the language stilted and occasionally hard to follow Sure The first three volumes were released in 1776 and the last three in 1787 Not only are the sentences convoluted and overextended in a manner far greater than 19th century writers like Dickens but Gibbon is inclined to use uaint silly and occasionally racist terms that were common in his era Notions that racial characteristics could be determined by the latitudinal source of an indigenous people s homeland or that a national culture could be described as effeminate have to be taken with an understanding of the limited intelligence of Western philosophers 250 years agoBut let s remind ourselves of what Gibbon really accomplished Without the benefits of online inuiries or Wikipedia without the easy ability to travel that some historians take for granted Gibbon did far than compile a history of the Western Roman empire from the time of Commodius to the collapse of Rome in the 470s as well as the companion history of the Eastern Roman Byzantine empire from 325 AD to 1453 AD On the way he compiles histories of Christianity heresies as well as Catholic and Eastern Orthodoxies Islam Sunni and Shia and a host of barbarian and tribal cultures such as Franks Goths Suevi Huns Vandals Persian Sassanid and beyond khanates Timurid and every imaginable iteration thereof Gibbon tells history as it should be told as a flow of peoples across a landscape not as a collection of static dates and personages to be memorized in history class though truth be told it would be useful for him to include a few dates than the years placed in the margins of each pageIt deserves mention that the Catholic Church proscribed this book for than 200 years and not only or primarily because of how cruel Gibbon was to the Catholic Church I for one would call him cruel but fair and he often bent over backward to make the case for orthodox interpretations of Christianity Instead the main reason the Catholic Church attacked Gibbon is because he described events that really happened At several points in the last 1700 years the Catholic Church has tried to claim that certain events in its attacks on heresy and certain fights between popes and anti popes never happened Gibbon will have none of that nor will be accept the events in the lives of the saints as being wholly truthful When he demanded fact checking on claims of the Catholic Church it is no wonder the church hierarchy wanted him bannedMany suggest that Gibbon worked with care on the first three volumes covering the Western Empire than he did on the final three volumes It s true that after the attempt by Emperor Justinian to re take the Mediterranean the narrative falters a bit Some critics say that this is because Gibbon found the Greek Orthodox Byzantines to be less palatable than the traditional Romans It s understandable he would have these feelings because the Byzantine government and culture did not give rise to any great philosophers and historians only treacherous rulers who would torture each other in odd lines of succession After the ridiculous wars of iconoclasm in the eighth and ninth centuries the rest of Byzantine history was just a slow ride down to the day in the mid 15th century when Constantinople was finally conuered by Ottoman MuslimsBut Gibbon s problems in the final three volumes were really ones of organization Perhaps because he didn t want to confuse the readers with the strange succession of emperors Gibbon groups capsule histories of the emperors early on then goes back to talk about Islam s spread the schisms between Orthodox and Catholic churches the meaning of the steppe warrior invasions both Zingis Khan and Timur and even some odd chapters on Roman civil uprisings There are times in the last two volumes of the history that the reader has to focus to keep the narrative train on the tracks And the modern reader always must keep access to Wikipedia handy because Gibbon rattles off some names tangentially that must be looked up and appraised merely to understand the point he is trying to makeBut as challenging as Gibbon s own idiosyncracies are The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire deserves its reputation as the most significant work of history ever accomplished by a single author in the last 500 years The personality that comes through in the writing shows us that this multi volume study was not written by committee Yet the scope of what Gibbon did writing in 1776 seems far beyond what most modern historians could accomplish with the aid of electronic tools Maybe Will and Ariel Durant s Civilization series deserves to be placed ahead of Gibbon s for that series massive size and the eually exuisite writing Yet the Durants were trying to describe global cultures and their histories in an open and free flowing way Gibbon was on a mission to tell a story that had no happy ending and the reader morbidly follows as though this was the real world Game of Thrones the story inevitably will end badly for all concerned yet we can t
