The only significant book on this little known Roman emperor.

Originally from Syria, Philip the Arab ruled the Empire of the East from AD 244 to 249 and is remembered for being sympathetic to the Christian faith—some even claim that he converted to Christianity long before Constantine famously converted. He also brought peace with the Sassanid Empire at long last.
