Agrippina, the emperor Claudius's niece, reads in the stars that Epaphroditus, a slave, is destined to help raise her son, the future emperor Nero, to the throne of the Caesars. Epaphroditus soon becomes Nero's confidant. Revolutionary unrest strikes Rome, a fiery comet makes a foreboding appearance and the young emperor makes a concert tour of Greece as enemies sprout like hydra's heads. Epaphroditus, fortified by the return of his faith in astrology, discovers that he, Nero's protector, is fated to kill his Caesar.

Review:

Set during 48 A.D., The Nero Prediction is an ominous story of destiny ... an exciting and compelling read. -- Midwest Book Review, November 10, 2005

Synopsis:

Nero, Caesar, Astrology, Incest, Torture, Murder, Orgies, Music, Madness! How Roman obsession with astrology murderously affected the reign of Nero. Dramatisation of the life of the Roman Empire's most controversial emperor, Nero Caesar, and how his actions were influenced by his belief in the stars. The novel explores why he killed his mother Agrippina, why he was influenced by comets (including Halley's comet) and how the exact hour of his death was accurately predicted. Nero was the first persecutor of the early Christians, who called him Antichrist and Beast 666. Nero's belief in the stars was an obsessive influence on his rule of Rome, which was set afire by persecuted Christians and Romans as an enraged response to the emperor performing music in public.

Book Description Process, United States, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. It is 48 AD, a time when Rome rules the world and astrologers rule Rome.Agrippina, the emperor Claudius' niece, reads in the stars that someone born in Alexandria on July 19, 32 AD, is destined to help raise her son, the future emperor Nero, to the throne of the Caesars. This fated young man is Epaphroditus, a library slave and the book's narrator, who at the age of 16 is taken by force to Rome to serve young Nero.Epaphroditus becomes Nero's confidant as the art-obsessed Caesar dreams of an age when music rules the world. After Nero performs his musical spectacles in public, apocalyptic Christians--believing him to be the antichrist--set Rome afire.Revolutionary unrest strikes Rome, a fiery comet makes a foreboding appearance, and the young emperor makes a concert tour of Greece as enemies sprout like Hydra's heads. Epaphroditus, fortified by the return of his faith in astrology, discovers that he, Nero's protector, is fated to kill his thor Humphry Knipe's brilliant historical novel shakes the rafters of conventional belief about Nero and his Rome and the ancient science of astrology. As Michael Grant, the preeminent published expert on the Roman Empire, says: "The belief in astrology was so predominant in the Mediterranean world that it exceeded every religion in power and influence. I admire Humphry Knipe's ingenuity in weaving an imaginative and fascinating story around it in "The Nero Prediction."Miriam T. Griffin, the author of "Nero: The End of a Dynasty," writes: "The Nero Prediction" captures very imaginatively an aspect of ancient thinking that conventional scholarship ignores. . . . It contributes to understanding the ancient mental landscape.". Seller Inventory # AAT9780976082224
