Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The Gallic panegyrics are as evocative of fourth-century Roman culture as the letters of Symmachus or the sermons of Ambrose. Having these documents available in English translation with a detailed historical commentary will be a boon to teacher and scholar alike."—Robert A. Kaster, Professor of Classics, The University of Chicago

"Rogers and Nixon expose rich seams of material. Their balanced and well-informed text and commentaries will be of enormous help in introducing students to the significance and fascination of late-third and fourth-century history."—John F. Drinkwater, University of Nottingham, England

"This is a real step forward in the study of late antique texts. The authors show just how much one can get out of texts that are still so easily dismissed."—Sabine MacCormack, author of Art and Ceremony in Late Antiquity

Synopsis:

Here, for the first time, is an annotated English translation of the eleven later panegyrics (291-389 C.E.) of the XII Panegyrici Latini, with the original Latin text prepared by R. A. B. Mynors. Each panegyric has a thorough introduction, and detailed commentary on historical events, style, figures of speech, and rhetorical strategies accompanies the translations. The very difficult Latin of these insightful speeches is rendered into graceful English, yet remains faithful to the original.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 675-692) and indexes.
