    FREE DOC ¶ READER Historiae Æ TACITUS HistoriaeFor all the detail Tacitus goes in to this is a fast paced introduction to a turbulent year in Roman history Emperor Nero has recently committed suicide and has been replaced by the elderly Galba who in short order is murdered by Otho who seizes the imperial crown only to commit suicide himself when Vitellius declares himself Emperor and marches on Rome defeating Otho's army with an army drawn from the Rhineland frontier but Vitellius doesn't get to enjoy being Emperor for long before he is executed by supporters of Vespasian who has left the siege of Jerusalem for his son to complete while he launches his claim for the Imperial throne Pause for breath This has taken place over the years 68 to 70ADTacitus' account of

Actually I'm not really all that sure it's not like it was some sort of Roman novel it was a history and from my experience the Histories tend to be nowhere near as sexually explicit as the one and a half Roman novels that we have reminded me a lot of an episode or a season – or the entire show of A Game of Thrones or at least the television series since I haven't read the book Well now we come to the seuel which isn't actually a seuel because Tacitus wrote the Histories before he wrote the Annals but it pretty much starts where the Annals end or at least where it was supposed to en

    FREE DOC ¶ READER Historiae Æ TACITUS Historiae Well there goes the last major work of Tacitus Over the last month and a bit its been a fun experience going through the Annals and the Histories The histories is an extremely chaotic book both in content and narration Tacitus constantly switches back and forth between events Sometimes this change can be uite unforgiving and without the footnotes I would have probably struggled to notice the change especially for the discussion of Vitellius time in Rome Overall I would divide this book into two parts both

    FREE DOC ¶ READER Historiae Æ TACITUS Historiae ”I am entering on the history of a period rich in disasters frightful in its wars torn by civil strife and even in peace full of horrors Four emperors perished by the sword There were three civil wars; there were with foreign enemies; there were often wars that had both characters at onceNever surely did terrible calamities of the Roman People or evidence conclusive prove that the Gods take no thought for our happiness but only for our punishment” – The Histories Book IThe Histories are an account of the “Year of the Four Emperors” 69 AD by the Roman Historian Tacitus Unlike most Roman histories including Tacitus’ own Annals the book doesn’t cover a broad slice of history instead diving deep into a specific period of crisis This is partly by chance – the Histories originally covered the entire Flavian Dynasty 69

    FREE DOC ¶ READER Historiae Æ TACITUS Historiae3 Stars Good bookLots of information in a pretty small book The amount of information was slightly overwhelming but overall fascinating Tacitus takes us back to aftermath of the fall of Nero He gives us a detailed history of Galba Otho Vitellius and Vespasian father of the Flavian Dynasty The years covered are 68 CE to 70 CE There are a lot of names in this book that are unknown to most though nonetheless fascinating The writing isn't hard to understand just jam packed with information I wouldn't necessarily say I enjoyed this one like I'm glad I read it Would I recommend it? If you really like ancient historyAncient Romeancient writers then yes If not no

    FREE DOC ¶ READER Historiae Æ TACITUS HistoriaeExcellent background for reading Lindsay Davis’s mystery series about a Roman detective—Tacitus is relating the story of the turbulence after Nero’s death when there was no clear line of succession to the position of emperor and military discipline was beginning its long years of decline It’s the year of four emperors ending with Vespasian The events in Gaul and Germany described by Tacitus are woven into Davis’s plots But of course it’s good background in general as well Who should I support? Would I be better off selling him out or pretending to be loyal while secretly negotiating just in case? How depraved can someone be? How much loot can I carry off? All good but of course historical uestions
