"The emperor Nero is etched into the Western imagination as one of ancient Rome's most infamous villains, and Tacitus' Annals have played a central role in shaping the mainstream historiographical understanding of this flamboyant autocrat. This section of the text plunges us straight into the moral cesspool that Rome had apparently become in the later years of Nero's reign, chronicling the emperor's fledgling stage career including his plans for a grand tour of Greece; his participation in a city-wide orgy climaxing in his publicly consummated 'marriage' to his toy boy Pythagoras; the great fire of AD 64, during which large parts of central Rome went up in flames; and the rising of Nero's 'grotesque' new palace, the so-called 'Golden House', from the ashes of the city. This building project stoked the rumours that the emperor himself was behind the conflagration, and Tacitus goes on to present us with Nero's gruesome efforts to quell these mutterings by scapegoating and executing members of an unpopular new cult then starting to spread through the Roman empire: Christianity. All this contrasts starkly with four chapters focusing on one of Nero's most principled opponents, the Stoic senator Thrasea Paetus, an audacious figure of moral fibre, who courageously refuses to bend to the forces of imperial corruption and hypocrisy. This course book offers a portion of the original Latin text, study aids with vocabulary, and a commentary. Designed to stretch and stimulate readers, Owen's and Gildenhard's incisive commentary will be of particular interest to students of Latin at both A2 and undergraduate level. It extends beyond detailed linguistic analysis and historical background to encourage critical engagement with Tacitus' prose and discussion of the most recent scholarly thought."--Open Textbook Library.

Tacitus is universally recognised as ancient Rome's greatest writer of history, and his account of the Roman Empire in the first century AD has been fundamental in shaping the modern perception of Rome and its emperors. This Companion provides a new, up-to-date and authoritative assessment of his work and influence which will be invaluable for students and non-specialists as well as of interest to established scholars in the field. First situating Tacitus within the tradition of Roman historical writing and his own contemporary society, it goes on to analyse each of his individual works and then discuss key topics such as his distinctive authorial voice and his views of history and freedom. It ends by tracing Tacitus' reception, beginning with the transition from manuscript to printed editions, describing his influence on political thought in early modern Europe, and concluding with his significance in the twentieth century.

Tacitus’ narrative of 69 CE, the year of the four emperors, is famous for its description of a series of coups that sees one man after another crowned. Many scholars seem to read Tacitus as though he wrote only about the constricted world of imperial Rome and the machinations of emperors, courtiers, and victims of the principate; even recent work on the Histories either passes over or lightly touches upon civil unrest and revolts in the provinces. In Provincial Soldiers and Imperial Instability in the Histories of Tacitus, Jonathan Master looks beyond imperial politics and finds threats to the Empire’s stability among unassimilated foreign subjects who were made to fight in the Roman army. Master draws on scholarship in political theory, Latin historiography, Roman history, and ethnic identity to demonstrate how Tacitus presented to his contemporary audience in Trajanic Rome the dangerous consequences of the city’s failure to reward and incorporate its provincial subjects. Master argues that Tacitus’ presentation of the Vitellian and Flavian armies, and especially the Batavian auxiliary soldiers, reflects a central lesson of the Histories: the Empire’s exploitation of provincial manpower (increasingly the majority of all soldiers under Roman banners) while offering little in return, set the stage for civil wars and ultimately the separatist Batavian revolt.

"Composé de l'Agricola, de la Germanie et du Dialogue des orateurs, le corpus des opera minora, ou opuscules, de Tacite n'a pas toujours reçu une attention comparable à ses opera maiora, à savoir les Histoires et les Annales. Ce livre collectif est le premier qui leur soit consacré. Une première série de contributions envisage le corpus à la fois dans sa totalité et en articulation avec la production historiographique ultérieure de Tacite. Une deuxième section explore des questions spécifiques à chaque ouvrage. Une troisième partie revient sur la continuité avec les opera maiora, mais en se centrant sur des aspects particuliers. À travers tous ces textes, ce sont les procédés narratifs, la méthode historique et l'idéologie de Tacite, tels qu'ils se perpétuent et évoluent du début à la fin de sa carrière littéraire, qui sont examinés."--P.

A review of the manuscript and imprint tradition proves the importance of Beatus Rhenanus' editions. It also explains the continuing controversy over the manuscript tradition. Sixteen of the imprints preceding Rhenanus' May 1519 work have been examined and the more important collated. Rhenanus' four editions of May and August 1519, of 1533, and of 1544 are described and analyzed; in the first three cases the author had access to Rhenanus' own amply annotated copies. This rich and original documentation for Rhenanus' understanding of Tacitus allows the sources and progress of his editing to be detailed and furnishes valuable evidence for his interpretation of difficult passages of the Germania. Rhenanus' successful effort is compared with current contributions. Eight illustrations and the collations of important early imprints accompany the text.
