📒Agricola And Germany ✍ Tacitus
📝Agricola and Germany Book Synopsis : `Long may the barbarians continue, I pray, if not to love us, at least to hate one another.' Cornelius Tacitus, Rome's greatest historian and the last great writer of classical Latin prose, produced his first two books in AD 98. He was inspired to take up his pen when the assassination of Domitian ended `fifteen years of enforced silence'. The first products were brief: the biography of his late father-in-law Julius Agricola and an account of Rome's most dangerous enemies, the Germans. Since Agricola's claim to fame was that as governor for seven years he had completed the conquest of Britain, begun four decades earlier, much of the first work is devoted to Britain and its people. The second is the only surviving specimen from the ancient world of an ethnographic study. Each in its way has had immense influence on our perception of Rome and the northern `barbarians'. This edition reflects recent research in Roman-British and Roman-German history and includes newly discovered evidence on Tacitus' early career.

📒Agricola And Germania ✍ Tacitus
📝Agricola and Germania Book Synopsis : The Agricola is both a portrait of Julius Agricola - the most famous governor of Roman Britain and Tacitus' well-loved and respected father-in-law - and the first detailed account of Britain that has come down to us. It offers fascinating descriptions of the geography, climate and peoples of the country, and a succinct account of the early stages of the Roman occupation, nearly fatally undermined by Boudicca's revolt in AD 61 but consolidated by campaigns that took Agricola as far as Anglesey and northern Scotland. The warlike German tribes are the focus of Tacitus' attention in the Germania, which, like the Agricola, often compares the behaviour of 'barbarian' peoples favourably with the decadence and corruption of Imperial Rome.

📒Agricola And Germania ✍ Publius Cornelius Tacitus
📝Agricola and Germania Book Synopsis : Agricola was the Roman general who completed the dominion of the Romans in Brittany. He served several emperors: Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian. Such conquest was not an easy task by any means. Tacitus is quite explicit in crediting the bravery of the peoples of Brittany who preferred death rather than to submit to a foreign conqueror.Rather than a historical chronicle, Germania is an ethnographic study of Central Europe in which Tacitus compares the decay of the Roman Empire with the energy of the barbarian tribes. Tacitus —perhaps out of hostility to Domitian— makes clear in his study that Germania not only remained unconquered, but also that it was a national security threat to the Roman Empire. So, Tacitus' hidden motive for writing this short report seems to be a call to action to complete a job still undone: the final conquest of Germania.

📒The Agricola And Germania ✍ Publius Tacitus
📝The Agricola and Germania Book Synopsis : The Agricola and Germania - Publius Cornelius Tacitus. A translation into English by A. S. Kline. Tacitus' early work Agricola, written c. AD98, is a biography of his father-in-law, Gnaeus Julius Agricola, covering the noted general's early life and his Governorship of Britain. Essentially a eulogy of a strikingly honest and capable Roman official, the work allows Tacitus to indulge in a quiet critique of Imperial Rome's control of the Empire under Domitian, with digressions regarding the geography and ethnography of Northern Britain. The emphasis is on the life of a virtuous soldier and official navigating through the difficult ocean of power politics, rather than on pure history and the details of provincial rule, but the Agricola is nevertheless a valuable contribution to our understanding of the period. The Germania, written about the same time, is a description of the lands, manners and customs of the German people and the individual Germanic tribes, as they were understood by the Roman Empire. Tacitus is generally favourable towards the legal, moral and religious codes of the people he is describing, but is equally ready to decry what he sees as their vices and failings. The result is a seemingly well-balanced view of a region which caused Rome much trouble and effort to bring under stable control. Like the Agricola, the Germania provides information, mostly derived at second-hand by Tacitus, concerning the largely obscure northern Empire, whose history and geography at that time we would love to know more about; information which has subsequently led to both sensible and not so sensible extrapolation and speculation from the limited amount he has to tell us.
