ANCIENT GREEK & ANCIENT ROMAN YEAR:The Lives, Vol. II - Plutarch ANCIENT GREEK & ROMAN YEAR: The Lives, Vol. I - Plutarch
Price: $29.95
Price: $24.95
"My design is not to write histories, but lives. And the most glorious exploits do not always furnish us with the clearest discoveries of virtue or vice in men; sometimes a matter of less moment, an expression or a jest, informs us better of their characters and inclinations than the most famous sieges, the greatest armaments, or the bloodiest battles...." -From Plutarch's "Life of Alexander" "Theseus seemed to me to resemble Romulus in many particulars. Both of them, born out of wedlock and of uncertain parentage, had the repute of being sprung from the gods. Both of them united with strength of body and equal vigour of mind; and of the two most famous cities of the world, the one built Rome, and the other made Athens be inhabited. Both stand charged with the rape of women; neither of them could avoid domestic misfortunes...." - From Plutarch's "Life of Theseus"
ANCIENT ROMAN YEAR: Cicero On Duties ANCIENT ROMAN YEAR: Complete Works of Tacitus (used copy)
Price: $24.95
Price: $24.95
Cicero wrote On Obligations (De Officiis) in late 44 BC after the assassination of Julius Caesar to provide principles of behavior for aspiring politicians. It has subsequently played a seminal role in the formation of ethical values in western Christendom. Adopted by the fourth-century Christian humanists, it became transmuted into the moral code of the high Middle Ages. Thereafter, in the Renaissance from the time of Petrarch, and in the Age of Enlightenment that followed, it was given central prominence in discussion of the government of states. Today, when corruption and conflict in political life are the focus of so much public attention, On Obligations is still the foremost guide to good conduct. This new edition is based on a more systematic examination of the vast manuscript tradition than has previously been attempted, and shows with new clarity the major contribution to the improvement of the text made by scribes and readers of the later manuscripts, both in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance. Tacitus was a Roman senator and historian. Tactitus' major works were The Annals and The Histories which covered the Roman Empire from 14 AD - 70 AD. The Complete Tacitus Collection includes the following works: The Annals, The Histories, Germania, Agricola, and A Dialogue Concerning Oratory, or the Causes of Corrupt Eloquence.
ANCIENT ROMAN YEAR: Confessions by Saint Augustine ANCIENT ROMAN YEAR: Consolation of Philosophy by Boethius
Price: $19.95
Price: $24.95
"You called and cried out loud and shattered my deafness. You were radiant and resplendent, you put to flight my blindness. You were fragrant, and I drew in my breath and now pant after you. I tasted you, and I feel but hunger and thirst for you. You touched me, and I am set on fire to attain the peace which is yours." In this new translation, the brilliant and impassioned descriptions of Augustine's colorful early life are conveyed to the English reader wit accuracy and art. This book is a masterpice beyond classification. Written in prison before his brutal execution in AD 524, Boethius' The Consolation of Philosophy is a conversation between the ailing prisoner and his 'nurse' Philosophy, whose instruction restores him to health and brings him to enlightenment. Boethius was an eminent public figure who had risen to great political heights in the court of King Theodoric when he was implicated in conspiracy and condemned to death. Although a Christian, it was to the pagan Greek philosophers that he turned for inspiration following his abrupt fall from grace. With great clarity of thought and philosophical brilliance, Boethius adopted the classical model of the dialogue to debate the vagaries of Fortune, and to explore the nature of happiness, good and evil, fate and free will.
ANCIENT ROMAN YEAR: Discourses by Epictitus ANCIENT ROMAN YEAR: Ecclesiastical History of the English People by St. Bede
Price: $24.95
Price: $19.95
Yet the stress on endurance, self-restraint and the power of the will to withstand calamity can often seem coldhearted. It is Epictetus, a lame former slave exiled by the Emperor Domitian, who offers by far the most positive and humane version of Stoic ideals. The Discourses, assembled by his pupil Arrian, catch him in action, publicly setting out his views on ethical dilemmas. Committed to communicating with the widest possible audience, Epictetus uses humor, imaginary conversations and homely comparisons to put his message across. The result is a perfect summary of 'the Roman virtues' —the brotherhood of man, universal justice, calm indifference in the face pain—which have proved so influential throughout Western history. This anthology is a thorough introduction to classic literature for those who have not yet experienced these literary masterworks. For those who have known and loved these works in the past, this is an invitation to reunite with old friends in a fresh new format. From Shakespeare’s finesse to Oscar Wilde’s wit, this unique collection brings together works as diverse and influential as The Pilgrim’s Progress and Othello. As an anthology that invites readers to immerse themselves in the masterpieces of the literary giants, it is must-have addition to any library.
