Roman Republican augury : freedom and control

Author: Lindsay Gayle Driediger-Murphy
Publisher: Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2019.
Series: Oxford classical monographs.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English : First editionView all editions and formats
Summary:
Scholarship on Roman Republican augury has previously tended towards the view that official divination was organized to tell its users what they wanted to hear. This volume argues instead that its rules did not allow humans simply to create or ignore signs at will: when human and divine will clashed it was the latter which was supposed to prevail.
