History book
#1
Maybe I'm being scrupulous, but is it ok to read a history book if it was written by a Protestant historian who had a lifelong aversion to Catholicism? The book is about ancient Rome and the republic during Julius Caesar, so it wouldnt say anything about the Church, I'm guessing. It's a well known historical work that received the Nobel Prize, by Theodor Mommsen.

Unless it directly attacks the Church (rather hard to do if discussing Julius Caesar), I wouldn't say so.

I took a look at it on an online public domain source, and it seems to be entirely about ancient Rome up to Julius Caesar, so I'm not expecting it to mention the Church or theology at all :)

It is. But if it attacks the Church, it might be difficult to bear, spiritually. Use discernment.
