Abstract:

A Companion to Livy is a collection of chapters representing the most up-to-date international scholarship on the life and works of the Roman historian Livy. Featuring contributions by some of the world's top contemporary Livian scholars, the chapters shed important new light on myriad aspects of Livy while exploring the complexity and originality of his monumental study of Roman history and the people of Rome. Collectively, the chapters offer powerful evidence to support the elevation of Livy's Ab Urbe Condita from a history book to a literary masterpiece centered on a particular moment in time and spaceùthe end of Rome's civil wars and the establishment of the principate under Augustusùthat expresses a unique philosophical approach to history. A groundbreaking new interpretation of Livy's historical philosophy, one based on a cyclical conception of the life of cities, is also presented for the first time in this collection. Innovative and thought-provoking, A Companion to Livy offers illuminating insights on one of the greatest Roman historians while setting a new standard in contemporary Livian scholarship. --Book Jacket.
