Emperors and gladiators by Thomas E. J Wiedemann( )

48 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and German and held by 2,782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all aspects of Roman culture, the gladiatorial contests for which the Romans built their amphitheatres are at once the most fascinating and the most difficult for us to come to terms with. They have been seen variously as sacrifices to the gods or, at funerals, to the souls of the deceased; as a mechanism for introducing young Romans to the horrors of fighting; and as a direct substitute for warfare after the imposition of peace. In this original and authoritative study, Thomas Wiedemann argues that gladiators were part of the mythical struggle of order and civilisation against the forces of nature, barbarism and law breaking, representing the possibility of a return to new life from the point of death; that Christian Romans rejected gladiatorial games not on humanitarian grounds, but because they were a rival representation of a possible resurrection

It is an indispensable resource for the study of Roman domestic and social history, providing an intimate glimpse inside the Roman home

The history of the tyrants of Sicily by "Hugo Falcandus," 1154-69 by Ugo Falcando( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The History of the Tyrants of Sicily by the so-called Hugo Falcandus is a key source for the history of the medieval kingdom of Sicily. It describes the events of the reign of King William I "the Bad" (1154-66) and the minority of his son, William II "the Good" (1166-89) up to the spring of 1169. These were years of crisis and the History presents a vivid and compelling (though savagely biased) picture of royal tyranny, rebellion and factional dispute at court. The author was both an eye-witness to the events he described and one of the great Latin writers of the Middle Ages. This book provides the first English translation of the history along with a selection of other contemporary evidence for this period. The introduction gives an original interpretation of the twelfth-century kingdom of Sicily which places the history in its historical and literary context, and examines the problem of its authorship. The notes to the texts offer a detailed guide to the Siculo-Norman kingdom and its leading figures

Ancient slavery and the ideal of man by Joseph Vogt( Book )

4 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays represents Vogt's personal contribution to the collective enterprise; the English edition is translated from the second German edition of 1972, which included three additional papers and a supplement bringing his earlier work up to date. The distinctive features of Vogt's approach to ancient slavery are his social awareness and sympathetic commitment, and his refusal either to ignore or be dominated by the dogmas of the left and the structures of sociology. His systematic investigation of ancient slave wars, which is the centre of this collection, is a reasoned refutation of more extreme Marxist interpretations, and a brilliant demonstration that a pragmatic approach to the analysis of a general phenomenon can lead to conclusions as far-reaching as any a priori system. Other outstanding essays investigate with subtlety and insight the position of slaves in literature and in utopian theory, the concept of the slave of God in early Christian thought, and the extent to which rigid distinctions between slave and free were eroded by the daily contact between individuals in different social roles, and by their inability to forget that both masters and slaves were human beings, with personal loyalties and friendships. The volume ends with two essays on the interrelationship between ancient and modern attitudes to slavery since the Renaissance." - The Amazon Book Review
