About This Item

1743 1st Scottish ed Tacitus Annals Histories Roman Empire Nero ROME Gronovius

"The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws."

― Tacitus, The Annals

Cornelius Tacitus was a 1st-century Roman historian who is now remembered for his two major works – 'Annals' and 'Histories' – in which he examines the lives and political careers of important Roman emperors such as Tiberius, Nero, and Claudius. By many accounts, Tacitus is considered the greatest Roman historian, not only by the accuracy of his content, but through demonstrating the psychological nature of ancient Roman politics.

'Histories' is one of the first written accounts to discuss the Great Jewish Revolt, an account that openly records combative attitudes between Jews and other cultures. 'Annals' was Tacitus's final work and covers the era following the death of Caesar Augustus, including the reigns of Claudius, Caligula, and Nero. It is also the earliest known secular history to mention Jesus Christ in which Tacitus connects Nero to the persecution of early Christians.

This 1743 Glasgow edition was published by Robert Urie who used the edits of Joannes Fredericus Gronovius – a German scholar known for his editions of Statius, Livy, Seneca, and other classical authors.
