The Wars of the Romans : a critical edition and translation of De armis Romanis by Alberico Gentili( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an English translation of Gentili's classic work, debating the legality and justice of wars waged by the Romans. Gentili pioneered the use of Roman law and just war theory in what would become a leading international law approach to the enduring questions of the justice of empire. Was the Roman Empire just? Did Rome acquire her territories through just wars, and did Rome's rule exert a civilizing effect, ultimately beneficial for its subjects? Or was Roman imperialism a massive injustice - the bellicose conquest and absorption of countless peoples and large swaths of territory under false pretences, driven by greed and a lust for domination and glory? In The Wars of the Romans (1599), the important Italian jurist and Regius Professor of Civil Law atOxford University Alberico Gentili (1552-1608) argues both sides of the debate. In the first book he lays out the case against the justice of the Roman Empire, and in the second book the case for. Gentili's polemic and highly engaging work helped pioneer the use of Roman law and just war theory in what became a leading international law approach to the enduring questions of the justice of empire. Writing in the wake of the first wave of European colonial expansion in the Americas, and relying on models of the controversy about Roman imperialism from Cicero to Lactantius and Augustine, Gentili developed the arguments which were to become pivotal in normative debates concerningimperialism. In this work Gentili, a consummate Roman law scholar, frames the moral and practical issues in a combination of Roman legal terminology and the language of natural law, a combination which was to prove highly influential in the literature from Grotius onward on natural law, the law of nations andwhat eventually became international law
Romans in a New World : classical models in sixteenth-century Spanish America by David A Lupher( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Romans in a New World shows how the ancient Romans haunted the Spanish conquest of the New World, more often than not as passionately rejected models. While the conquistadors themselves and their publicists challenged the reputations of the Romans for incomparable military genius and daring, Spanish critics of the conquest launched a concerted assault upon two other prominent uses of ancient Rome as a model: as an exemplar of imperialistic motives and behavior fit for Christians to follow, and as a yardstick against which to measure the cultural level of the natives of the New World
Greeks, Romans, and pilgrims : classical receptions in early New England by David A Lupher( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Greeks, Romans, and Pilgrims' David Lupher examines the availability, circulation, and uses of Greek and Roman culture in the earliest period of the British settlement of New England. This book offers the first systematic correction to the dominant assumption that the Separatist settlers of Plymouth Plantation (the so-called "Pilgrims") were hostile or indifferent to "humane learning" - a belief dating back to their cordial enemy, the May-pole reveler Thomas Morton of Ma-re Mount, whose own eccentric classical negotiations receive a chapter in this book. While there have been numerous studies of the uses of classical culture during the Revolutionary period of colonial North America, the first decades of settlement in New England have been neglected. Utilizing both familiar texts such as William Bradford's 'Of Plimmoth Plantation' and overlooked archival sources, 'Greeks, Romans, and Pilgrims' signals the end of that neglect

Altera Roma : art and empire from the Aztecs to New Spain( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This symposium, "Altera Roma: art and empire from the Aztecs to New Spain," was presented in conjunction with the exhibition "The Aztec Pantheon and the Art of Empire," on exhibit at the Getty Villa from March 24 to July 5, 2010. The symposium considers one of history's most momentous confrontations, an encounter between two cultures, European and Mesoamerican, and two empires, Spanish and Aztec. In unexpected yet significant ways, this conflict was also a meeting ground between Mexico and the ancient Mediterranean. Through lectures and discussion, distinguished international scholars examine the contexts in which classicism mediated a dialogue between Mesoamerica and Europe in the 1500s-1700s, when parallels were routinely drawn between the Old World past and the pre-Hispanic cultures of the New World. Speakers address cross-cultural analogies in the early modern period, as well as current comparative approaches to the archaeology of empire
