HASH(0x9255cdd4) von 5 Sternen Very Educational 6. Juni 2012
Von Bror Erickson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The Complete Works of Tacitus, is kind of a misnomer as not all of his works are complete. That said this book has all that there is left and known to the world at large of his works and they are very informative.
I started reading the book because I had always heard he had mentioned Christ in his history. Indeed he does, but I also found the book to be enlightening on scripture in other ways. Here you have a secular historian recounting everything that is happening in the empire during that time that the New Testament is taking place and being formed. You get insights into the scripture that way that you otherwise might not get. Such as when Tacitus praises Germanicus for being a man of one woman and not having illegitimate children, This sheds light on how that term was used and what it meant, a term that is used twice by Paul in listing the qualifications for a pastor. You find that there was actually quite a bit of turmoil surrounding the "pax Romana" and considerable political intrigue.
One becomes a bit more familiar with the life of Nero. For instance you come to realize that killing his own mother was probably one of the more admirable things he did.
His work on Germania is considerably enlightening. I found myself liking that ancient culture almost as much as Tacitus admired them.
Tacitus, though, did not merely write a history, but a political treatise complete with notes on leadership and what makes for good leadership and bad leadership. I also enjoyed the use of vocabulary that stretched me to use a dictionary and look up terms.
I do wish though that the book made better use of hyper-linking to notes and footnotes.

The text is truly complete, clearly disposed and offers a good index. Its forenote provides useful guidance into Tacitus' text, in wich, like in every ancient historiography, mith, opinion and the keen eye of the time meet both philosophical and political principles.
HASH(0x925677ec) von 5 Sternen Homework for a trip to Italy 23. Oktober 2012
Von Jeanette Harris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a wonderful look into the life and times of Ancient Rome. I read this for a 3 week trip to Italy. We went to Florence and Rome. I read it while on our 19 hour flights and layover. It's a shame the ancient writers are not very well known. This filled out what the people did and how they thought. It was very helpful to "round out" our visits to the Roman ruins all over Italy.
I'll download more ancient writers!
HASH(0x9256e714) von 5 Sternen Very readable translation. 10. August 2015
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
An excellent translation. Very readable and coherent with enough consistency to let a little bit of Tacitus' personality shine through. It is also very helpful to have the original Latin version available for reference. While I am far from fluent it was helpful on several occasions to be able to refer to the original.
