  • "Focus on the Family Great Stories are riveting novels from the past for today's readers. Each book features the complete text and, in convenient footnotes, present-day definitions for older words. They also include in-depth introductions that shed light on the authors and the times in which they lived and discussion questions. In the dark, decadent last days of the Roman Empire, a pagan soldier sees a girl of exotic beauty and decides he must have her as his concubine. But unknown to him, Ligia is a Christian intent on living a pure life, even as Nero's ruthless persecution sweeps the city. As the lives of Vinicius and Ligia intertwine, they watch the world they know change before their eyes. While the apostles Peter and Paul seek to save the immoral city from ruin, Christians are brutally martyred in the Coliseum and Rome burns. Quo Vadis, part of Focus on the Family Great Stories collection, vividly captures all the madness and suspense of one of history's most unforgettable chapters. Introduction and Afterword by Joe Wheeler."
  • """Quo Vadis"" vom Nobelpreisträger Henryk Sienkiewicz erzählt die Liebesgeschichte zwischen dem Römer Vinicius und der Christin Lygia. Als Vinicius Lygia zuliebe zum Christentum konvertieren will, beginnt nach dem Brand Roms, initiiert durch Nero, die Christenverfolgung ... Der 1895 erschienene Historienroman wurde bald zum Bestseller und zog zahlreiche Verfilmungen nach sich. Henryk Adam Aleksander Pius Sienkiewicz wurde 1846 in der polnischen Landgemeinde Krzywda geboren. Er verdiente sich seinen Lebensunterhalt zunächst als Hauslehrer und später als Journalist. Für die Zeitung Gazeta Polsk."
  • "Rome, 64 apr. J.-C. Dans le palais d'Antium, Vicinius tombe amoureux de la belle Lygie. Mais celle-ci se refuse à lui et disparaît avec la complicité d'amis chrétiens. Vicinius la retrouve et parvient à gagner son amour au moment où Néron la condamne à mourir dans l'arène."
  • "Rom zu Zeiten Kaiser Neros: Der mordende Imperator versucht, durch die Christenverfolgung seine Herrschaft zu sichern. Als der Römer Vinicius sich in die Christin Lygia verliebt, gerät das Paar ins Zentrum des dramatischen Konflikts. Der polnische Literaturnobelpreisträger Henryk Sienkiewicz schuf mit diesem Werk einen der letzten Klassiker des historischen Romans."
  • "An historical novel set in the reign of the Roman Emperor Nero, dealing with persecution of the Christians."
  • "The story of a renowned and successful Roman general who falls in love with a lowly Christian woman, risking everything for her, during the corrupt and decadent reign of Nero."
  • ""Quo Vadis is the tale of a Roman general in Nero's army in the first century A.D. who risks everything when he falls in love with a Christian woman. This classic novel reveals a divided society. On one side is Rome's aristocracy, the picture of godless extravagance and excess. On the other are the city's persecuted Christians, vilified and thrown to lions as scapegoats for the burning of Rome"--"
  • "This is the story of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's spectacular film "Quo Vadis". Based on Henryk Sienkiewicz's famous novel of love and faith, courage and terror, lust and luxury, tyranny and triumph, as translated by Jeremiah Curtin."

  • ""A tak skončil Nero. Stejně jako končívá vichřice, bouře, požár, válka nebo mor. Ale Petrova bazilika vládne dosud z vatikánských výšin městu i světu. A u někdejší Capenské brány stojí dnes malá kaplička a na ní je už poněkudsetřelý nápis : Quo vadis, Domine?" Těmito slovy končí slavný historický román ze starověkého Říma Neronova a době zanikajícího pohanství a nastupujícího křesťanství, zachycující pronásledování prvních křesťanů, román velkéhopolského romanopisce, odměněný r. 1905 Nobelovou cenou."
  • "Une description colorée des temps néroniens et de la première grande persécution contre les chrétiens, de célèbres grandes figures du monde païen comme Néron ou Pétrone, des personnages issus de la jeune chrétienté et nés de l'imagination de l'auteur comme Lygie et Ursus, ou tirés de l'histoire comme saint Pierre et saint Paul, traversent ce roman tandis que le bouillant tribun Vicinius progresse."
  • "Quo Vadis is a monumental historical epic that portrays the vibrant and dissonant combination of cruel excesses and decadence of Rome during the reign of the corrupt Emperor Nero and the high faith of the emerging era of early Christianity."
  • "The author gives pictures of a conflict from which Chistianity issued as the leading force in history. A vast interest to persons reading this book, a trilogy, is of great merit."@en
  • ""In "Quo Vadis" the author gives us pictures of the conflict of moral ideas within the Roman Empire, a conflict from which pagan immorality declined, and Christianity proceeded as the leading force in history. This powerful novel tells of a love that develops between a young Christian woman named Lygia and Marcus Vinicius, a pagan Roman. It takes place in the city of Rome under the brutal emperor Nero's rule. The conflict described in "Quo Vadis" has always been of supreme interest to a vast reading audience; and this book rouses more attention than anything else ever written by Sienkiewicz. It is his timeless masterpiece, translated into more than 50 languages worldwide"--P. [4] of cover."@en
  • "Mohutný obraz antického Říma doby Neronovy a první počátky křesťanství. Těžištěm knihy je historická katastrofa požáru Říma. Starou tradici, že Řím byl spálen z podnětu césarova, spojil autor důmyslně s jiným dějovým pásmem, se soupeřením Petronia a Tigellina o vliv na šíleného císaře. Působivé je líčení Neronových hostin a slavností, otřásající jsou scény mučení křesťanů. Obraz starořímské společnosti, řítící se nezadržitelně k svému konci, narýsoval autor uprostřed analogické situace ve chvíli krize na konci 19. stol., takže jeho román je zároveň pronikavou kritikou vládnoucí společnosti nové doby."

  • "During the tumultuous reign of Nero, Vinicius, a pagan, and Ligia, a Christian, fall in love."
