We are proud to announce that January 2009 will mark the official debut of NovAntiqua in the world of books.
Our first title to hit the presses was a literary sensation when it was initially released in 1895, and it is regarded as a classic a century later.
Henryk Sienkiewicz’s work Quo Vadis deftly weaves together history and fiction, capturing the birth of the Christian Church in the midst of the decadence and cruelty of first-century Rome. He tells a story of lust, of love, of conversion and transformation, and of the cost of following One who asks only everything, even life itself.
This volume presents the classic English translation of Jeremiah Curtin, the translation in which Quo Vadis received its recognition in the English-speaking world, and the translation in which generations of readers have had their introduction to Nero’s Rome.
Henryk Sienkiewicz (1846-1916) was a Polish author and journalist who won the 1905 Nobel Prize in Literature for his “outstanding merits as an epic writer.” Quo Vadis was and remains his most sought-after work, achieving great popularity within his lifetime and still noted for its depiction of Rome under the rule of Nero.
Stay tuned for our announcement that Quo Vadis is available for purchase.
