Early Middle A ges, Theodoric the Ostrogoth. The plan of the series, for which this volume has been prepared, does not admit of minute discussion of the authorities on which the history rests. In my case the omission is of the less consequence, as I have treated the subject more fully in my larger work, Italy and her I nvaders, and as also the chief authorities are fully enumerated in that book which is or ought to be in the library of every educated Englishman and A merican, Gibbon s History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. The fifth and sixth centuries do not supply us with many materials for pictorial illustrations, and I do not know where to look for authentic and contemporary representations of the civil or military life of Theodoric and his subjects.
