Jul 25, Zoe rated it did not like it Robert Silverbergs point of divergence for his alternate history, in which the Roman Empire never fell, is that Exodus never happened, the Jews remained in Egypt, and Jesus of Nazareth was never born. Christianity doesnt exist in this universe, and paganism remains the dominant religion. Despite what Edward Gibbons liked to think, the link between Christianisation and the collapse of Roman power in the West is tenuous at best, and most modern scholarship cites factors other than Christianity in explaining the end of the Roman Empire. This allows a relatively familiar course of events, until the divergence after Caracalla allows the Roman Empire to survive and not collapse in the fifth century. Despite the new line of emperors in the West, the Eastern Roman emperor is is still Justinian I, who is still married to Theodora.

Plot introduction[ edit ] The point of divergence is the failure of the Israelite Exodus from Egypt. Moses and many of the Israelites drowned, and the remnant—led by Aaron —were fetched back to slavery in Egypt , a traumatic event recorded for posterity in the Book of Aaron, an alternate version of the Bible. Later on, the Hebrews were freed from bondage, and remained a distinct religious-ethnic minority in Egypt, practicing a monotheistic religion, up to the equivalent of our 20th Century 27th Century of the Roman Calendar. Still, affairs of the larger world, the rise and fall of empires and cultures, remained roughly the same as in our history up to division of the Roman Empire here, never Christianised. At this point, mutual assistance between the Western and Eastern Roman Empires against barbarian invasions preserved both from falling and kept Roman rule intact throughout the imperial dominions. Despite the absence of Christianity, which in our history considerably influenced early Islam , Muhammad did start his prophetic career—but was assassinated by a perceptive Roman agent, nipping Islam in the bud and thus precluding the spread of any Monotheistic religion through the Roman Empire. Plot summary[ edit ] The novel is presented as a series of vignettes over a period of about years, from ab urbe condita AD to AUC AD
