used to be waren das für Menschen, die sich jedes Jahr die Rüstung anlegten und dem Tod ins Auge sahen? Wie verliefen genau Schlachten in der Antike, und wie beeinflussten sie die große Politik? Der Autor revidiert uns vertraute Mythen: Nicht Sparta, sondern die Athener Demokratie struggle der aggressivste Staat der griechischen Welt. Marathon und Salamis waren keineswegs rauschende Siege, sondern glückliche Abwehrerfolge gegen einen nach wie vor überlegenen Gegner. Und Alexander gewann seine Schlachten nicht, weil er ein Genie struggle, sondern weil er die politischen Schwächen der Perser nutzte. Selbst das Christentum konnte sich am Ende der Antike der kriegerischen Realität nicht entziehen und erkannte im Sieg auf dem Schlachtfeld den Inbegriff des menschlichen Erfolgs auf Erden.

Chr. noch eine eher unbedeutende Macht, deren Staatsgebiet sich über kaum mehr als Mittelitalien erstreckte. Nach den drei Punischen Kriegen hatte sich das Machtverhältnis im Mittelmeergebiet radikal verändert: Karthago battle zerstört worden, die griechischen Poleis auf Sizilien unter römischer Kontrolle und Rom selbst zu einer kriegserprobten Kolonialmacht mit umfassenden Herrschaftsanspruch herangereift. Wie konnte es dazu kommen? Und was once trieb Rom und Karthago in einen Krieg, dessen katastrophales Ende zu Beginn keineswegs abzusehen warfare? battle der Erste Punische Krieg ein bewusst kalkuliertes Risiko Roms, um zu mehr Macht, Ruhm und Land zu kommen? Oder konnten die Konfliktparteien schlicht nicht einschätzen, was once aus dem anfänglich kleinen Zwist erwachsen würde?

Trotz seines frühen Todes mit gerade einmal achtzehn Jahren ging Elagabal als einer der berüchtigtsten Kaiser Roms in die Geschichte ein. Mit nur vierzehn Jahren kam der orientalische Knabenpriester aus Syrien im Jahr 218 an die Macht. Er stellte den gleichnamigen Sonnengott Elagabal an die Spitze des etablierten römischen Pantheons, beschäftigte sich mit orgienhaften Ritualen, nahm sich männliche und weibliche Geliebte und soll sich in Kneipen und sogar im Kaiserpalast prostituiert haben. Sein Verhalten zog Kritik und Verdammung seitens des Senats und des Volkes gleichermaßen auf sich. Seit seiner Ermordung durch die Prätorianergarde faszinierte Elagabal Historiker und inspirierte Künstler und Schriftsteller.
Äußerst lebendig schildert Martijn Icks das Leben Elagabals. Er geht mit seiner Studie weit über die klassische Kaiserbiografie hinaus, indem er das Wesen religiöser Anschauungen, Kultur und Ethnizität, die Präsentation des kaiserlichen Bildes und die Reaktion darauf einbezieht.
