    One thought on “Emperor and Galilean”

    1. Emperor and Galilean is a very significant Ibsen work, despite its lack of fame. It is the last of his epic works and his last historical play. It is autobiographical and the clearest summation of his opinions on religion. Ibsen himself said that it was his masterpiece.For all those reasons, I am disappointed that I don't like it more. However, there is still much of interest within the play.For his last historical play, Ibsen turns away from Norwegian history and back to Roman history, the subj [...]

    2. My first time with this impressive play about the Emperor Julian's rise to power as an apostolate, only to be conquered, he thinks, by the god of Christianity durning his war against the Persians. Involved, dramatized rather than argued, and subtle, Ibsen shows how people find a way to cling to their beliefs to explain life no matter what turns their lives take. Fascinating and great, with some dull passages here and there.

    3. A fascinating play that really codifies Ibsen's artistic ideals but it's just a little bit too long for my tastes.

    4. Emperor and Galilean by Henrik IbsenOn Religion, more than on an Emperor or a GalileanThis play is very much about religion; at least this is was very present in the mind of this reader, right from the beginning of the play.A spoiler alert is in order, not because I will reveal the finale or elements of the plot.On the contrary.I will say nothing of the “action”, for throughout the play I could only think of my recent obsession with God, his mistakes –an oxymoron, obviously and how to deal [...]

    5. ایبسن در "امپراطور و جلیلی" تلاش دارد نظریه ای را که با "براند" آغاز کرد، و در "پیر گونت" ادامه داد، روشن و بصورت نهایی ارائه دهد؛ جهانی نو که یولیانوس امپراطور، می خواهد از تعلیمات مسیح بسازد. نمایش نامه کمی گنگ و نارسا بنظر می رسد. از آنجا که این نمایش نامه ها مانند آن دو تای دیگر [...]

    6. This epic tale of Julian, Caesar turned Roman Emperor, Christian turned pagan, is Ibsen's masterpiece, however clocking in at nearly 7 hours it has never been performed. Yes, this was written in the late 1800's and only a few years ago a Broadway producer cut it down for it's inaugural performance over 125 years after it's publication. There are mystics, the clash between the Romans and the Christians, the expansion of the Roman empire at the detriment of the Persians, Gauls, Africans, and Arabs [...]

    7. I read this in preparation for an essay on Julian the Apostate and his historical reception and I have to say it wasn't an easy read. I think that if I had seen it performed, it would have been easier to relate to but sadly this is rarely performed. If I get the chance to go, it is currently running at the National Theatre in London (heavily edited), but until then I must make do with what I can. I can only give it three stars for that reason, but I intend to re-read it properly when I don't hav [...]

    8. The first Ibsen I've read in quite some time and the first that I remember covers a historical Roman figure. It is a delight to see how Ibsen's modern approach to story telling works on the historical figure of Emporer Julian. Having recently travelled to Pergamon and Ephesus, the story brings to life these places in a way that I haven't experienced with another text. For a proper review, this is my favorite: ibsenvoyages/translati
