Author Roger Haydon Mitchell
The Day of the Labyrinth is the overall title of a series of fictionalised, or “fantastic” histories. Grappling with the political realities of war, violence and selfish ambition as they interface with peace, friendship and belonging, they investigate the potential of love as an alternative way of being.
Rooted in the author’s years of research into the interplay between radical justice and dominating sovereignty in four key episodes of western history, they begin with the encounter between embodied love and empire in the days of Constantine the great.
Based around the popular French legend of Saint Quentin and Eusébie and the author’s disturbing research findings about the apparent Christianising of Rome, this novel choreographs the compelling journey of a diverse group of companions in their attempt to subvert the Roman Empire with justice and love. Aimed at averagely or more intelligent nine to ninety year olds, it will probably be PG to under twelves alongside such books as Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials and Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.
