"The period from the fifth century to the eighth century witnessed massive political social and religions change. This book explores the interdependence of geographical and historical modes of expression in four of the most important writers of the period: Orosius Jordanes, Isidore of Seville and the Venerable Bede.

Roman geographies of the Nile : from the late Republic to the early Empire by A. H Merrills( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The River Nile fascinated the Romans and appeared in maps, written descriptions, texts, poems and paintings of the developing empire. Tantalised by the unique status of the river, explorers were sent to find the sources of the Nile, while natural philosophers meditated on its deeper metaphysical significance. Andy Merrills' book, Roman Geographies of the Nile, examines the very different images of the river that emerged from these descriptions - from anthropomorphic figures, brought repeatedly into Rome in military triumphs, through the frequently whimsical landscape vignettes from the houses of Pompeii, to the limitless river that spilled through the pages of Lucan's Civil War, and symbolised a conflict - and an empire - without end. Considering cultural and political contexts alongside the other Niles that flowed through the Roman world in this period, this book provides a wholly original interpretation of the deeper significance of geographical knowledge during the later Roman Republic and early Principate."--Provided by publisher

History and geography in late antiquity by A. H Merrills( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period from the fifth century to the eighth century witnessed massive political, social and religious change in Europe. Geographical and historical thought, long rooted to Roman ideologies, had to adopt the new perspectives of late antiquity. In the light of expanding Christianity and the evolution of successor kingdoms in the West, new historical discourses emerged which were seminal in the development of medieval historiography. Taking their lead from Orosius in the early fifth century, Latin historians turned increasingly to geographical description, as well as historical narrative, to examine the world around them. This book explores the interdependence of geographical and historical modes of expression in four of the most important writers of the period: Orosius, Jordanes, Isidore of Seville and the Venerable Bede. It offers important readings of each by arguing that the long geographical passages with which they were introduced were central to their authors' historical assumptions and arguments
History and geography in late antiquity by A. H Merrills( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the fifth to the eighth centuries, historians such as Orosius, Jordanes, Isidore of Seville and the Venerable Bede sought to make sense of their world. This title argues that, in order to explain how the Roman Empire fragmented into 'barbarian' states, they looked not only to events shaping the world, but also to its physical form. With this approach, the title not only provides fresh interpretations of four of the most important historians of the period but also draws broader conclusions on the relationship between 'historical'
