Summary
This struggle between Christian and pagan in ancient Rome thrills on the grand scale. The half-mad Emperor Nero delights in burning the city and blaming the fire on the Christians so he can slaughter them. In the midst of this, Rome's Prefect has the misfortune to fall in love with a Christian maiden and to be desired by Nero's powerful Empress, whom he spurns. The stage is thus set for a spectacular enactment of some of the most chilling events of all time
