The late Roman world and its historian : interpreting Ammianus Marcellinus by Jan Willem Drijvers( )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 1,809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ammianus Marcellinus, Greek by birth but writing in Latin c. A.D. 390, was the last great Roman historian. His writings are indispensable for all students of late antiquity as the basis for our knowledge of the late Roman world. He offers not only the 'traditional' Roman subject matter of emperors and high politics, military campaigning and foreign wars, but new features symptomatic of his age - the machinations of the imperial court, barbarian peoples and their leaders, the powerful Persian kingdom in the east and the influence of Christian bishops." "This book presents a collection of papers analysing Ammianus' writings from a variety of perspectives, including Ammianus as historian of, and participant in, Julian's Persian campaign, his identification with traditional religious attitudes and values in Rome and his view of the Persians. The contributors address the tension of Ammianus' dual role as both 'outside' external narrator and at the same time an 'insider' to the contemporary experiences and events which make up his surviving history"--Jacket
