Creator:Newman, I. DeQuincey (Isaiah DeQuincey), 1911-1985
Title:Sermon comparing the declining Roman Empire and the modern US
Date:n.d., 2008

Two page handwritten sermon that compares the decline and fall of the Roman Empire with the deterioration of national, personal, and spiritual life. The sermon refers to Edward Gibbon's History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, then emphasizes the failings of letting home life deteriorate, of neglecting personal growth, of becoming preoccupied with pleasure sports, of focusing too heavily on external battles, and of withdrawing from one's religious practice.
