Historiography at the End of the Republic: Provincial Perspectives on Roman Rule Hardcover - 2006

by LIV Mariah Yarrow


From the publisher

This study of six historians from the edges of the Roman world at the end of the Republic--the author of I Maccabees, Posidonius, Diodorus Siculus, Pompeius Trogus, Nicolaus of Damascus, and Memnon of Heraclea--combines discussion of their biographical details, the intellectual and elite
culture in which they composed, and the methodological difficulties of interpreting fragmentary texts, with textual analysis of their representations of Rome. These authors show remarkable unity in their acceptance of Roman hegemony. Nevertheless, their interpretations of Roman rule assume political
significance in the light of their intentions in writing and the audiences whom they addressed. They therefore provide a unique insight into the minds of the conquered peoples and the intellectual culture which allowed them to influence their conquerors.

First line

The cultural and political climate of the Late Republic was ripe for the emergence of politically powerful individuals from among the intellectually adept elite of the provinces.
