David Dillon-Smith , University of Wollongong. This thesis examines a significant aspect of Gibbon's thought and outlook and its effect on his major work. Part I traces the development of moral attitudes in the man and their expression in his early and exploratory writings. The first and second chapters trace this development through his reaction to Oxford, his apprenticeship in Lausanne and his return to England, as the moral foundations were laid and tested till the aspiring historian was ready to turn his mind to the choice of a satisfying subject. Chapter three pauses to survey the principles he explored and tentatively set down in his first publication and notes their significance for the emerging historian.
It traces Western civilization as well as the Islamic and Mongolian conquests from the height of the Roman Empire to the fall of Byzantium. The six volumes cover the history, from 98 to , of the Roman Empire , the history of early Christianity and then of the Roman State Church , and the history of Europe, and discusses the decline of the Roman Empire among other things. Gibbon offers an explanation for the fall of the Roman Empire , a task made difficult by a lack of comprehensive written sources, though he was not the only historian to attempt it.
