April blogging #A-Z 2018- Q

This post is written for the April blogging #A-Z 2018. 
I have chosen the theme Books and Authors for this year.
I was searching for both the author and the book that begins with Q and there were books but I have not read them. I remembered one book by name Quadis – which is a classic novel written by Henry K Sienkiewicz from Poland, known for his literary pieces. He is one of the popular polish writer  of the 19 & 20th centuries and his writings brought him international fame and was awarded Nobel Prize  for his epic writing. Quadis is historically remembered and well known and it was made into a film. I recall watching this film as a child and in those days this film was rated as one of best films of the time.
Since I have not read this book- I am in no position to write a review about this book – I only remember a few clippings of the movie, wherein at one place Peter, one of the disciple of Jesus flees to Rome and on his way meets Jesus’ who tells peter that he is going to Rome to be crucified again for the second time, which disturbs peter who returns back to Rome only to be crucified.
There is also a passionate story amidst all the historical details between young Christian women Ligia and Marcus Vincicius, a Roman officer who falls in love with Ligia, the daughter of king defeated by Rome. Ligia is drawn to Vincicius but is put off by his crude advances and flees with the help of her strongman servant.
Vincicius finds out that Ligia is deeply influenced Peter and Paul belonging to Christian religion from Rome. The movie portrays the struggle of Vincicius desire for Ligia and his gradual change towards genuine love affair. The movie was brilliantly done with amazing photography and was rated as one of the finest film. I hope to read this book some time being history student- I am somehow drawn unconsciously to read some historic booksJ
