The Urchin Empress
designed, provided the artwork and illustrated this revealing book for the author, Roger Shrubb.
The book is a fictional tale of a real woman who brought Christianity to the Roman Empire. She was an ordinary girl who ended up becoming the mother of a great Emperor who stopped feeding Christians to lions (and far worse as you will read) and himself was baptised.
This affectionate biography by a slave of her mistress Elena over a turbulent period of the Roman Empire deals with problems still troubling the world today:
repression of women,
rape as a weapon of war,
mental illness, and
the corrupting effect of power.
