Henryk Sienkiewicz

Quo Vadis: A Narrative of the Time of Nero, tells of a love that develops between a young Christian woman, Ligia (or Lygia), and Marcus Vinicius, a Roman patrician. It takes place in the city of Rome under the rule of emperor Nero, circa AD 64. 'Quo vadis Domine' is Latin for 'Where are you going, Lord?' and alludes to the apocryphal Acts of Peter, in which Peter flees Rome but on his way meets Jesus and asks him why he is going to Rome.
