Jordanes Gothengeschichte nebst Auszügen aus seiner römischen Geschichte by Jordanes( Book )

92 editions published between 1603 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Hans-Jürgen Hube zeichnet an Hand des überlieferten lateinischen Textes des Cassiodorus, beziehungsweise des Jordanes, unter Einbeziehung anderer zeitgenössischer Verfasser, u. a. des Prokop und des Agathias, die sagenhaften Schicksale der rätselhaften Ostgoten nach, die - aus mehreren Volksstämmen bestehend - aus Skandinavien an die Weichsel, über weitere Flüsse ans Schwarze Meer, ja, bis zum Don und nach Kleinasien gelangten, sich bald von den Westgoten abtrennten, von den Hunnen überrannt wurden, aber mit ihnen unter Attila als Bundesgenossen bis Gallien zogen, später auf dem Balkan Fuss fassten, schliesslich unter ihrem König Theoderich dem Grossen - dem Dietrich von Bern der Sage - ganz Italien eroberten, hier ein stabiles Ostgotenreich errichteten, aber spätestens im Jahre 555 unter den Schlägen des oströmischen Feldherrn Belisar untergingen. Der Ostgotenkönig Theoderich liess zuvor, noch im vollen Besitz der Macht, von seinem berühmten Minister Cassiodorus die Sage seines Stammes, den er stolz 'die Amaler' nannte, aufschreiben, und ein anderer zeitgenössischer Ostgote namens Jordanes schuf nach dessen Vorlagen die hier wiedergegebene Ostgoten-Saga, auch 'Getica' genannt, die aus 60 Kapiteln besteht und nun - mit vielen Ergänzungen und Anmerkungen - gelesen werden kann. Viele ostgotische Namen und Ereignisse leben in der europäischen Heldensage und Geschichte weiter bis auf den heutigen Tag."--

"Jordanes' work recounts Gothic fables and migration legends as well as a lengthy account of the 5th century Romano-Gothic defense of Italy against the armies of Attila the Hun. The Gothic History is a fascinating look into this turbulent period when Western Europe transitioned from the world of classical antiquity to the Middle Ages."--Provided by publisher

Romana : and, Getica by Jordanes( Book )

4 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of Gothic descent, Jordanes wrote a unique set of histories. The Getica narrates the history of the Goths from their earliest origins until the middle of the sixth century. Building on the lost history of Cassiodorus, it is the earliest example of a history told from the perspective of one of the barbarian peoples establishing kingdoms in the fifth and sixth centuries. It had great influence on later medieval historians, on national histories of the nineteenth century and on modern accounts of Gothic history. The Romana is a survey of world and Roman history. Whilst largely dependent on traditional Roman histories and chronicles for events up to the fourth century, it contains much unique information for the last two centuries it narrates. This book offers the first translation into English of the Getica for a century and the first modern translation of the Romana. The introduction locates the Getica and the Romana in the context of ancient historiography, building a new picture of Jordanes as a historian and of the two works themselves. It also offers a detailed discussion of the sources used by Jordanes, suggesting possible ways to identify his debt to Cassiodorus. Extensive notes guide the reader through these fascinating but often complex texts."
