Historical background


JULIAN II THE PHILOSOPHER

(6/11/355-26/06/363)

Augustus

Julien II, Caesar in 355, was proclaimed august in Paris in February 360. After the death of Constantius II, in November 361, he remained sole master of the empire. Installed in Antioch at the beginning of 363 where he wrote the Misopogon (Of those who are against the beard - because he wore the beard of the philosophers), he abjured Christianity by trying to create a pagan syncretism. This policy failed and did not survive the emperor who died on June 26, 363, killed or assassinated, while he had begun a brilliant campaign against the Sassanids..
