As the American election nears

A general Dissolution of Principles & Manners will more surely overthrow the Liberties of America than the whole Force of the Common Enemy. While the People are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their Virtue they will be ready to surrender their Liberties to the first external or internal Invader. How necessary then is it for those who are determin’d to transmit the Blessings of Liberty as a fair Inheritance to Posterity, to associate on publick Principles in Support of publick Virtue.

— Samuel Adams

The Theodosian Press: What Is It?

The Theodosian Press is an e-publishing venture that will bring to the reading public new works of history, theology, and literature, as well as reintroducing forgotten classics. We aim to combine scholarly integrity with popular readability and to make our imprint synonymous with entertaining and educational digital books.

The press is named after two emperors of Late Antiquity: Theodosius I defeated the Arian heresy, ended the bloodthirsty gladiatorial games, and rescued enslaved children; Theodosius II invented the university and built the mighty land walls that protected Constantinople for a thousand years.
