"Okuvligare än något envälde är germanernas frihet."Tacitus arbete den förnämsta litterära källan för kännedomen om germanernas levnadssätt och seder. Boken skrevs år 98 e. Kr. I den första avdelningen beskrivs germanerna i allmänheten. I den andra olika folkslag mera specifikt. Där möter vi göterna och svearna (för första gången i litteraturen), men också många andra folk, till exempel finnar, ester och angler (som senare gav namn åt England). Bland mycket annat får vi veta- Att germaner levde efter ett demokratiskt system: "Konungar korar de på grund av hög börd, härförare på grund av tapperhet. Men konungarna tillkommer ingalunda något oinskränkt eller godtyckligt herravälde, och härförarna utövar inflytande fastmer genom föredöme än genom befäl. ... I ärenden av mera underordnad betydelse rådplägar hövdingarna, i mera maktpåliggande menigheten, dock så att även det, vari allmogen har avgörande, utreds hos hövdingarna. ... För övrigt må ingen utom prästerna straffa eller fängsla eller ens slå någon."--Att kvinnans ställning var god: "Germanerna tror till och med, att hos kvinnan innebor något slags helighet och siarförmåga, och varken försmår de att inhämta hennes råd eller ringaktar de hennes svar."- Om deras religion: "För övrigt anser de det icke överensstämma med himmelska väsens storhet att inspärra gudar inom väggar eller att avbilda dem i någon gestalt med mänskliga drag. Lunder och hult helgar de."- Spådomsutövning- Rättväsen- Krig och systemet med hirdmän- Jordbruk- Bebyggelse och byggnadskonst- Klädessätt- Äktenskap: "Emellertid hålls äktenskapen där strängt, och i intet hänseende torde germanernas seder förtjäna mera beröm. Bland alla främmande folk står de nämligen nästan ensamma om att nöja sig med endast en hustru."- Moral: "Således lever kvinnorna i tryggad ärbarhet, ofördärvade såväl av skådebanans förförelser som av ett nervretande sällskapsliv. Ytterst sällan förekommer äktenskapsbrott. ... Ty där ler ingen åt sedeslösheten, och att förföra och förföras skylls ej där på tidsandan. ... Att avsiktligt begränsa antalet barn eller avliva något av de övertaliga anses såsom en skändlighet. Verksammare gäller där goda seder än på andra håll goda lagar."- Familjens ställning- "Umgänge och gästfrihet utövar intet folkslag mer oinskränkt än detta."- Hemliv och umgänge: "Ty att hålla ut dag och natt i dryckjom länder ingen till skam. De såsom vanligt bland dryckeshjältar titt och ofta återkommande tvisterna ändas sällan med blott trätor utan oftast med dråp och blodviten. ... Men de avhandlar ävenledes såväl förlikning mellan inbördes ovänner som knytandet av frändskap och antagandet av hövdingar, ja till och med frågan om fred och krig merendels vid sina gillen."- Mat och dryck- Nöjen- Trälar: "En var råder över egen boplats, eget bo. Husbonden ålägger honom att, ungefär såsom en brukare hos oss, lämna en viss mängd säd eller boskap eller vävnad, och blott så till vida är trälen en underlydande. Övriga förrättningar vid gården ombesörjs av hustrun och barnen. Att en träl piskas eller beläggs med bojor och underkastas tvångsarbete inträffar sällan."- Begravningsskick: "Vid deras begravningar låder icke någon flärd. Endast det iakttas, att liken av framstående män förbränns med ved av bestämda trädslag. ... Med gråt och klagan upphör de snart, med sorg och saknad sent. Kvinnornas sak är det att sörja, männens att minnas."- Om göterna läser vi bland annat att de var "styrda av konungar, visserligen med något stramare tyglar än andra germanska folkstammar, men dock ännu icke med förlust av den medborgerliga friheten".- Om svearna att de "är mäktiga icke allenast genom manskap och vapen utan även genom flottor".

The histories by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

495 editions published between 1611 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 4,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In AD 68 Nero's suicide marked the end of the first dynasty of imperial Rome. The following year was one of drama and danger. In the surviving books of his Histories the barrister-historian Tacitus, writing some thirty years after the events he describes, gives a detailed account of the 'long but single year' when four emperors emerged in succession: Galba, the martinet; Otho, conspirator and dandy; Vitellius, the unambitious hedonist; and the ultimate victor, Vespasian, who established the Flavian dynasty. With great vividness and emotional power, Tacitus' gripping narrative lays bare corruption, injustice and folly, and sheds lasting light on the nature of power. This revised version of Kenneth Wellesley's translation has sensitively updated it to render it more accessible to the modern reader. This edition contains a new introduction by Rhiannon Ash discussing Tacitus' life and his contemporary audience, a note on the text, further reading, a glossary of place and peoples, expanded notes and a chronology"--Page 4 of cover
De vita Agricolae by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

608 editions published between 1574 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 2,580 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

The Annals and the Histories by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

28 editions published between 1943 and 2003 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cornelius Tacitus brilliantly chronicles the moral decline and rampant civil unrest in the Roman Empire in a period when the earliest foundations of modern Europe were being laid. The Annals commence in a.d. 14, at the death of Augustus, recounting the reigns of Tiberius, Gaius (Caligula), Claudius, and Nero, and conclude in a.d. 68, the year of Nero's suicide. The Histories document the tumultuous year a.d. 69, when Emperors Galba, Otho, and Vitellius all perished in quick succession, ushering in Vespasian's ten-year reign. According to historian Will Durant, "[We must] rank Tacitus among the greatest. ... The portraits he draws stand out more clearly, stride the stage more livingly than any others in historical literature." This Modern Library Paperback Classic includes newly commissioned endnotes.

Agricola ; and Germany by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cornelius Tacitus, Rome's greatest historian and the last major writer of classical Latin prose, produced his first two books in AD 98. He was inspired to take up his pen when the assassination of Domitian ended 'fifteen years of enforced silence'. These first products were brief: the biography of his late father-in-law Julius Agricola and an account of Rome's most dangerous enemies, the Germans. As governor for seven years, Agricola had completed the conquest of Britain and much of Tacitus' biography is devoted to the country and its people. Germany is the only surviving specimen from the ancient world of an ethnographic study. Each of these early works has had immense influence on our perception of Rome and the northern 'barbarians'." "This newly translated edition reflects recent research in Roman-British and Roman-German history, including recently discovered evidence on Tacitus' early career."--Jacket
The annals : the reigns of Tiberius, Claudius, and Nero by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a lively new translation of Cornelius Tacitus' timeless history of three of Rome's most memorable emperors. Tacitus, who condemns the depravity of these rulers, which he saw as proof of the corrupting force of absolute power, writes caustically of the brutal and lecherous Tiberius, the weak and cuckolded Claudius, and "the artist" Nero. In particular, his gripping account of the bloody reigns of Tiberius and Nero brims with plots, murder, poisoning, suicide, uprisings, death, and destruction. The Annals also provides a vivid account of the violent suppression of the revolt led by Boudicca in Britain, the great fire of Rome under Nero, and the subsequent bloody persecution of the Christians. J.C. Yardley's translation is vivid without sacrificing accuracy, and is based on the recent Latin Heubner text, with variations noted in an appendix. Anthony A. Barrett's introduction and notes provide invaluable historical and cultural context. This superb edition also includes maps, a glossary of Roman terms and place names, and a full index of names and places. - Publisher
Tacitus by Viktor Pöschl( Book )

32 editions published between 1534 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of seminal and lively articles on the Roman historian of the early empire, Tacitus, is written by a wide range of established experts in the field. Tacitus is best known for his extraordinary historical narratives on the Roman emperors from Tiberius to Nero and the civil wars which followed the death of Nero in AD 68. The articles are designed to reflect the main trends in scholarship on Tacitus, particularly as they have developed over the last century, and to situate this Roman author in his literary and historical context. Beginning with a comprehensive introduction, Ash sets the selected scholarship in context and discusses the history of modern critical responses to Tacitus. Covering the whole of Tacitus' works (the 'Agricola', 'Germania', 'Dialogus', as well as the historical narratives, the 'Histories' and the 'Annals', this volume also includes articles published in English for the very first time"--Publisher's description, back cover
