In Part 2 of Ioannis Mylonopoulos’s interview with Peter Brown (catch up with Part 1), the eminent historian talks about his latest book, Through the Eye of a Needle: Wealth, the Fall of Rome, and the Making of Christianity in the West, 350-550 AD, whether or not he’s changed his mind on Augustine, the churches Constantine built in Rome, and the responsibilities of the historian. The winner of multiple awards for prose, Brown also opens a window into how he writes.

We would like to thank Dimitri Gondicas and Carol Oberto for hosting the interview in the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University.
