Sienkiewicz is best remembered for his historical novels. Many of his novels, first serialized in newspapers, are still in print.
In Poland he is best known for "The Trilogy" of historical novels With Fire and Sword, The Deluge, and Sir Michael, set in the 17th-century Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth; internationally he is best known for Quo Vadis, set in Nero's Rome.
The Trilolgy and Quo Vadis have been filmedseveral times, with the 1951 version receiving the most international recognition.
Quo Vadis: A Narrative of the Time of Nero, "Quo vadisDomine" 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. Jesus says "I am going back to be crucified again", which makes Peter go back to Rome and accept martyrdom.
