Peter Heather

Professor of Medieval History at Kings College London, of his ground-breaking The Fall of the Roman Empire Tom Holland wrote ‘Heather provides the reader with drama and lurid colour as well as analysis… he succeeds triumphantly’. It and his books that followed have been huge international sellers. Macmillan published Empires and Barbarians to terrific reviews and published The Restoration of Rome – Barbarians, Popes and Imperial Pretenders in 2013.

He is writing his magisterial Christendom – tracing the thousand years from Rome’s adoption of the faith till its Europe-wide acceptance – for Penguin Press UK, Knopf US, and Klett-Cotta in Germany, where he is a bestseller.
