Written nearly a century ago and translated into over fifty languages, this masterpiece of historical fiction is one of the best-selling novels in history and the inspiration for the MGM motion picture of 1951. An epic of love and courage in Nero's time, it illustrates the conflict of moral ideas within the Roman Empire at the dawn of Christianity.

Marcus, a Roman officer in Nero's army, risks his career, his family, and even his life when he falls in love with a Christian woman named Callina. In order to win Callina's love, Marcus must come to understand the true meaning of her religion, even as Rome sinks under the excesses of Nero and Christians are thrown to the lions. Quo Vadis brims with the passion and life as it explores one of the turning points in history.

display_description "Quo Vadis: a Narrative of the Time of Nero" is the story of a love that develops between a young Christian woman, Lygia, and Marcus Vinicius, a Roman patrician. "Quo Vadis" is Latin, meaning "Where are you going?" and it is a reference to the New Testament verse John 13:36 which states, "Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou?" Jesus answered him, "Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards." A captivating tale set in an ancient time, Quo Vadis is a novel with a very pro-Christian theme.
