History of the Greco Roman World (1,998 Books)


The Greco-Roman world, Greco-Roman culture, or the term Greco-Roman (pronounced /?gr?ko?'ro?m?n/ or /?gr?k?'ro?m?n/; spelt Graeco-Roman in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth), when used as an adjective, as understood by modern scholars and writers, refers to those geographical regions and countries that culturally (and so historically) were directly, protractedly and intimately influenced by the language, culture, government and religion of the ancient Greeks and Romans. In exact terms the area refers to the 'Mediterranean world', the extensive tracts of land centered on the Mediterranean and Black Sea basins, the 'swimming-pool and spa' of the Greeks and Romans, i.e. one wherein the cultural perceptions, ideas and sensitivities of these peoples were dominant.

Economic Theory Literature

Preface: LONDON 1889, THERE is no period of history which has been so much obscured by incorrect and misleading titles as the period of the later Roman Empire. It is, I believe, more due to improper names than one might at first be disposed to admit, that the import of that period is so constantly misunderstood and its character so often misrepresented. For the first step towards grasping the history of those centuries through which the ancient evolved into the modern wo...

Roman History, Books Iiii

By: Titus Livius

Preface: Whether in tracing the history of the Roman people, from the foundation of the city, I shall employ myself to a useful purpose, I am neither very certain, nor, if I were, dare I say; inasmuch as I observe that it is both an old and hackneyed practice, later authors always supposing that they will either adduce something more authentic in the facts, or, that they will excel the less polished ancients in their style of writing. Be that as it may, it will, at all e...

History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire Edward Gibbon, Es

By: Edward Gibbon

The great work of Gibbon is indispensable to the student of history. The literature of Europe offers no substitute for ?The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.? It has obtained undisputed possession, as rightful occupant, of the vast period which it comprehends. However some subjects, which it embraces, may have undergone more complete investigation, on the general view of the whole period, this history is the sole undisputed authority to which all defer, and from whic...
