This final volume covers 1185 A.D. -- 1453 A.D. and explores the rise of Islam, the Crusades, the invention of gunpowder, Genghis Khan and the Mongol invasions, the Turkish conquests, and the beginning of the Renaissance. The publication of this work in 1788 ended 20 years of Gibbon's contemplation and vast research on his subject and made this virtually self-educated man the most famous historian of his time. The graceful, elegant prose and the personal involvement of Gibbon in his writing render The decline and fall a masterful work of art as well as a remarkable survey of, in the author's words, "the greatest, perhaps, and most awful scene in the history of mankind."
