The Emperor Julian

Excerpt from The Emperor Julian: An Essay on His Relations With the Christian Religion In the third place, the man Julian himself affords a baffling problem in psychology. He is a figure sure to arouse admiration in most, and likely to startle a few. No plain satisfactory reason for his apostasy has been propounded, and when Signor Negri suggests that he was insane, he only shows to what a pass historians are driven. In many ways Julian was a simple kind of man, and we may have missed the key to his psychology just because he is so simple. His simplicity, like the simplicity of elemental comedy, some times tends to the grotesque; the writing of the M isopogon, the episode of the priest with the lonely goose to sacrifice; the Emperor's populous beard, the epithets applied to Athanasius, have a taste of Aristophanic buffoonery. The Emperor has been put finely in a play by Ibsen. One half expects to find him somewhere parodied by Mr. G. B. Shaw.
