The Romans and their gods in the age of Augustus by R. M Ogilvie( Book )

52 editions published between 1969 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 1,408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author makes it possible for the modern reader to appreciate the real feeling behind the seemingly conventional and formalistic imprecations and appeals to the gods of Roman literature, and to understand the faith which sustained many of Rome's most distinguished citizens. He makes wide us of original material (all of which is quoted in translation) to give a picture of religious life at Rome between 80 B.C. and A.D. 69. He tells us how the Romans prayed; what happened at a sacrifice; what sort of gods they believed in and how seriously they took their religion." [Back cover]

Roman literature and society by R. M Ogilvie( Book )

27 editions published between 1980 and 1991 in English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the plays of Plautus and Cicero's criminal cases in the 2nd century B.C. to the satires of Juvenal and the histories of Suetonius in the 2nd century A.D., this introductory survey of Roman literature places the major Latin works surviving today against the background of the society in which they were written. For the uninitiated, Professor Ogilvie assumes no knowledge of the Latin language, but explains to the student and general reader alike where the works of the lyric poets like Catullus and Horace, historians like Sallust and Livy, dramatic orators like Cicero and even self-propagandists like Caesar, belonged within the context of Rome's developing society." --Contratapa

11 editions published between 1961 and 2002 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Livy's epic history of Rome he unashamedly praised his country's virtues and urged against its excesses, in order to keep it great. He dedicated most of his life to writing some 142 volumes of history, the first five of which comprise The Early History of Rome." "With stylistic brilliance and historical imagination Livy (c. 59 BC - AD 17) brings alive the great characters and scenes from Rome's past, beginning with the foundation of Rome, through the history of the seven kings, the establishment of the Republic and its internal struggles, up to recovery after the Gallic invasion of the fourth century BC. He also vividly re-presents familiar legends and tales, including the story of Romulus and Remus."--Jacket
Agricola by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

18 editions published between 1967 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first work of any great historian has always commanded attention, and Tacitus was ancient Rome's very greatest historian. His biography of his father-in-law, governor of Britain in the years AD 77-84, is a literary masterpiece: it combines penetrating political history with gripping military narrative and throughout poses the question (still very much alive today) of how one should live one's life under a tyranny. This is the first commentary in English on the Agricola for almost half a century: in keeping with the aims of the series, particular attention is paid to the understanding of Tacitus' Latin, but a whole range of generic, historical, textual and narrative topics is covered, and it will be suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students as well as scholars. 'Tacitus Agricola' remains a key text for anyone with an interest in Roman Britain as well as ancient biography
