After all, Zoroaster, Gautama Buddha and Jesus were historical figures, despite the legends attached to their names.

The annals of imperial Rome by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

76 editions published between 1956 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tacitus' Annals of Imperial Rome recount the major historical events from the years shortly before the death of Augustus up to the death of Nero in AD 68. With clarity and vivid intensity he describes the reign of terror under the corrupt Tiberius, the great fire of Rome during the time of Nero, and the wars, poisonings, scandals, conspiracies and murders that were part of imperial life. Despite his claim that the Annals were written objectively, Tacitus' account is sharply critical of the emperors' excesses and fearful for the future of Imperial Rome, while also filled with a longing for its past glories

Jesus : an historian's review of the Gospels by Michael Grant( Book )

17 editions published between 1977 and 1995 in English and held by 1,772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author looks at the gospels with an historian's eye, in search of the authentic Jesus. He seeks to separate those portions of the gospels that refer to the true career and teachings of Jesus, from the subsequent additions or inventions by the evangelists. The gospels are studied in the same way as other ancient historical sources, endeavouring to reconstruct what really happened and to uncover the truth of the historical Jesus. The picture of Jesus that emerges is in some respects unfamiliar." prod. desc
