Gibbon (1737-1794) the Historian, wrote the History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, 1776-88, which is known for the quality and irony of its prose, its use of primary sources, and its open criticism of organised religion. Gibbon's work has been criticised for its scathing view of Christianity as laid down in chapters XV and XVI, a situation which resulted in the banning of the book in several countries. The subject of Gibbon's writing as well as his ideas and style have influenced other writers. Besides his influence on Churchill, Gibbon was also a model for Isaac Asimov in his writing of The Foundation Trilogy, which he said involved "a little bit of cribbin' from the works of Edward Gibbon"
