Description

AMMIANUS MARCELLINUS AND HIS CHRONICLES

A five-week Lifelong Learning Dundee course by Renato Ammannati

Ammianus Marcellinus is considered the last great major Roman historian. Born of a Greek family, he served as a soldier in Gaul and Persia. Living later in Rome, he wrote the Rerum gestarum libri (The Chronicles of Events), a history of the Roman Empire, from the principate of Nerva (96 – 98 AD) to the death of Valens (emperor from 364 to 378). He began where the Roman historian Tacitus ends his Histories. Unfortunately the first 13 chapters of Ammianus’ book were lost but the surviving 18 are of paramount importance in charting the events that took place in the years 354–378, when the Roman Empire was about to collapse.

Students are asked to bring a copy of the book:
The Later Roman Empire: (AD 354-378) (Classics) Paperback – 29 May 1986
by Ammianus Marcellinus (Author), Andrew Wallace-Hadrill (Editor, Introduction)

Course Code: 03 206
