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 p ... Read more

1826 Works of Suetonius Twelve Caesars Julius Caesar Caligula Nero ROME Delphini "Nothing is more unpredictable than the mob, nothing more obscure than public opinion, nothing more deceptive than the whole political system." ― Suetonius, 'The Twelve Caesars' Suetonius was a 1st-century Roman historian who is most remembered by his important set of biographies of twelve successive Roman rulers from Julius Caesar to Domitian. "The Lives of Twelve Caesars" or "De Vita Caesarum" is still considered one of the primary sources on Roman history and discusses important facets of the end of the Roman Republic. "Twelve Caesars" covers the lives of Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellus, Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian, and is the first work to offer insights to some of the lesser-known aspects of these important Roman figures – such as Julius Caesar's struggle with epilepsy.

1849 John Froissart Chronicles Medieval Hundred Years' War Chivalry Illustrated The 'Chronicles' of Jean Froissart have continually been perceived as an important work on medieval history for centuries, since its inception in the 14th-century. While some of the subjects covered are repetitive and insignificant, many topics are of utmost importance including famous battles, deaths of monarchs, and the Catholic Church Great Schism. According to Adams in the "Manual of Historical Literature," "Froissart might be called the great interviewer of the Middle Ages. The newspaper correspondent of modern times has scarcely surpassed this medieval collector of intelligence. He travelled extensively in the various countries of Europe; he conversed with gentlemen of rank everywhere; and he had the remarkable knack of persuading those about him to divulge all he wanted to know. He learned the details of battles from both sides and from every point of view. He delighted in the minutest affairs of every cavalry skirmish, of ... Read more
