3. I can understand how continuing research may invalidate older texts
of
history. But has time and research invalidated this author's monumental
work?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_History_of_the_Decline_and_Fall_of_the_
Roman_Empire

I don't think so. And likewise, the writings of Moses Segal and Meyer
Waxman
enjoy a lot of continuing vitality today, despite the passage of time
and
the discovery of new facts, such as dead sea scrolls.

Actually, if you follow Classics, you will know that Gibbon has been
largely discredited...
