In this book, third in a series which includes Jacques Le Goff's Medieval Characters and Eugenio Garin's Renaissance Portraits, leading scholars search for the character of the ancient Romans through portraits of Rome's most typical personages. Essays on the politician, the soldier, the priest, the farmer, the slave, the merchant, and others together create a fresco of Roman society as it spanned 1300 years. Synthesizing a wealth of current research, The Romans surveys the most complex society ever to exist prior to the Industrial Age. Searching out the identity of the ancient Roman, the contributors describe an urbane figure at odds with his rustic peers, known for his warlike nature and his love of virtue, his magnanimity to foreigners and his predilection for cutting off his enemies' heads. Most important, perhaps, of the themes explored throughout this volume are those of freedom and slavery, of citizenship and humanitas. What results from the depictions Roman society through time and across its many constituent cultures is the variety of Roman identity in all its richness and depth. These masterful essays will engage the general reader as well as the specialist in history and culture.
Les lites et leurs facettes
Depuis plus de vingt ans, une série de colloques et leurs Actes a permis de cerner en profondeur la réalité, les modes de vie, les ressources, les émergences des élites locales de l'Italie péninsulaire, de la République jusqu'au Haut-Empire, puis leurs rapports avec le pouvoir central. Il était temps de s'interroger sur la pertinence du terme même d'élites, désormais adopté dans toutes les langues, souvent associé à un adjectif qui le précise, pour désigner des groupes sociaux qui, peut-être, ne méritent pas tous un tel qualificatif. Pour parvenir à visualiser toutes les " facettes " des élites, il a fallu élargir les études à la fois sur le plan géographique et chronologique, ce qui nous a conduits à un parcours du Moyen-Orient aux Colonnes d'Hercule et à des incursions diachroniques, en amont et en aval, de la protohistoire au monde contemporain. Ce volume, riche en contributions multiples, permet de répondre à cette interrogation sous-jacente : le mot polymorphe, " élites ", est-il pertinent ou ne faudrait-il pas préférer " notables " ? Un accord s'est dessiné et finalement c'est " élites " qui l'a emporté.
The Marriage of Roman Soldiers 13 B C A D 235
Roman soldiers were forbidden to marry during service; many formed "de facto" families. This book analyzes the evidence for this ban; the social and legal history of the soldiers' families; and the marriage ban as policy and as cultural formation.
A Companion to Women s Military History
This volume addresses the changing relationships between women and armed forces from antiquity to the present: eight chapters review the existing literature, an extended picture essay visually documents women’s military work, and eight chapters illustrate more restricted topics.
Suetonius' Life of Augustus is the most commonly read ancient account of the life of Rome's first emperor, presenting a mass of historical and biographical detail about both his public and personal lives. This volume provides the first large-scale commentary on Suetonius' work in English, drawing out what is unique about Suetonius' information, discussing how it relates to other ancient accounts, and assessing its historical reliability. The commentary is the first to be accessible to readers without any knowledge of Latin or Greek due to its use of English lemmata, while the new translation remains faithful to the original Latin. Accompanied by an introduction which investigates the career of Suetonius, the date of the Lives of the Caesars, the structure of the Life of Augustus, the various sources utilized by Suetonius, and the way in which the reader should approach this complex text, the commentary also looks to examine Suetonius' work not just as a repository of facts, but as a literary artefact carefully constructed by its author.
The Imperial Roman Army
The Emperor Augustus believed that the Roman army occupied a crucial lace at the heart of the empire and it was he who made it a fully professional force. This book looks at the structure and development of the army between the Republic and the Late Empire, examining why the army has always been accorded such a prominent position in the history of the Roman Empire, and whether that view is justified. The book is divided into three sections. The author first examines the major divisions of army organization - the legions, the auxiliary units, the fleet - and how the men were recruited. Secondly he looks at what the army did - the training, tactics and strategy. Finally he considers the historical role of the army - how it fitted into Roman society, of which it was only part, and what influence it had economically and politically. In exploring these themes, the author gives equal weight to epigraphic, documentary and archaeology evidence. With tables summarizing detailed information, Yann Le Bohec provides a synthesis of current knowledge of the Roman army from the first to the third century AD, putting it in its context as part of the state structure of the Roman Empire.
Legions and Veterans
A collection of 21 papers written by Keppie during the last 30 years which reflect his interests in the settlement of Veterans in Italy during the Augustan period and in the legions of Roman Britain. The essays, based on a detailed scrutiny of the abundant epigraphic evidence, examine the changing role of the legions during the transformation from Republic to Empire, imperial legions in Britain and the East and the evidence for veteran colonies. Each paper, all but three previously published, retains its original format.

The Theodosian Code
The Theodosian Code, put together under the Eastern Roman Emperor Theodosius II, is a compliation of the laws dating from 312 to 438 AD, when the code was published. It brought order to a vast unmanageable body of law and formed part of the basis for the sixth-century Institutes of Justinian, fundamental to later jurisprudence. This book is an important collection of articles, well established as an essential resource for students of Roman law, long unavailable and here published in paperback for the first time with a new preface and updated bibliography.
