Julian is Given His Crown


ON this day in the year 361, the Emperor Constantius died. Before he died he had a hasty baptism. And, he named his cousin Julian as his successor.

I find those what if moments in history, where the whole thing could have gone another way, interesting.

And giving paganism a real run at competing with organized Christianity.

But, again, a lovely what if…

And, so not a song of old Roman religion, but old ways…

What if’s…
