KIRKUS REVIEW

Again -- following the Claudius new-old tradition, this is another recreation of history, in the story of Vitellius, soldier by training, hating his bastardy, feeling -- throughout his official career in Syria -- the influence of the life and death of Jesus. Though he does not become a Christian, he yields his birthright to protect the persecuted. Doesn't measure up to the Robert Graves' spontaneity and verve -- seems a trifle dated, as though in the Marion Crawford school. But, readable enough.
