"Alaric in Rome"

Photogravure after the painting by Wilhelm von Lindenschmit (1829-1895).

London, ca. 1890

After having ransacked Constantinople, Corinth, Sparta an other places in Greece, Alaric, first king of the Visigoths (370-410), moved on to Rome battling down places he happened to pass. A wild, incredibly active life. Lindenschmit envisioned Alaric's entrance into Rome in the year 410. Although Rome was no longer the capital of the West Roman Empire, having lost out to Milan and then to Ravenna, the "eternal city" had begun to be the center of Christianity, the spiritual center of the Roman Empire. For Rome Alaric's sacking may well be seen as the beginning of the end of the glorious Roman Empire.
