He was born about 59 BC in Patavium (modern Padua) in Northern Italy, where he spent the early part of his life. He is said to have written philosophical dialogues in his youth (Elder Seneca, Controversiae 10 Praef. 2), but his fame rests on his 142 book history of Rome, called Ab Urbe Condita From the Founding of the City ), which he began to write around 29 BC, after he had moved to Rome. As far as we know, Livy never held public office nor played a role in public life. Livy was acquainted with the emperor Augustus, but scholars debate the extent to which they shared common goals. The later Roman historian Tacitus ( Annals 4. 34) reports that Augustus called Livy a "Pompeian", i.e. thought that he had Republican sympathies. We also hear that Livy encouraged the future emperor Claudius in his historical studies (Suetonius

Livy Topics
Topic I - Livy as an historian and his work as a cultural document.
How does Livy conceive of his task as an historian? What contrasts or similarities do you see with programmatic statements made by Herodotos and Thucydides? How do these relate, if at all, to the different age in which and for which Livy writes? Does the Hum course approach Livy from the perspective that, regardless of the truth or falsity of his account of early Roman history, his text is still useful for getting a sense of Roman national self-definition and civic identity? If so, is that a legitimate approach, and what is that civic identity?
Topic II - The Rape of the Vestal Virgin/Story of Romulus and Remus, p. 37-40.
In what sense does the story show elements of myth? Of what stories which you have encountered in Greek literature or elsewhere is it reminiscent? What larger themes of Livy's history are brought out through this episode? Why is it important that the infants were suckled by a wolf?
Topic III - Foundation of Rome, p. 40-43, with p. 50.
How does Romulus compare to other founding fathers you met in the Greek world, such as Solon or Lycurgus? What is distinctively Roman about him? Why would the Romans prefer a tradition which has their city arising from such humble origins, an influx of slaves and other refugees?

Much of what Livy included in his history was legend and epic drama, but this style was considered good history in Roman times. Though his history consisted of one hundred forty-two books, only thirty-five remain. Byzantine writers later paraphrased much of his work that is now lost. The first five books of Livy's History of Rome From its Foundations are available in an English translation from Penguin Classics.

livy (59 BC17), livy was at least acquainted with Augustus, but is often identifiedwith an attachment to the Roman Republic and a desire for its restoration.
Livy (59 BC-17)
A native of Padua on the Po River in northern Italy, Titus Livius (in English-speaking countries, "Livy"), wrote a monumental history of Rome from its founding in 753 B.C. The book's title, Ab Urbe Condita ("From the Founding of the City"), makes Livy's ambition clear, but not his method. He writes in a mixture of annual chronology and narrative - often having to interrupt a story to announce the elections of new Consuls at Rome. Livy was at least acquainted with Augustus, but is often identified with an attachment to the Roman Republic and a desire for its restoration. [Adapted from Wikipedia
The Great Books Livy
This web page is part of a biographical database on Great Ideas . These are living ideas that have shaped, defined and directed world culture for over 2,500 years. By definition the Great Ideas are radical. As such they are sometimes misread, or distorted by popular simplifications. Understanding a Great Idea demands personal engagement. Our selection of Great Ideas is drawn from literature and philosophy science art music ... theatre , and cinema . We also include biographies of pivotal historical and religious figures , as well as contributions from women and other historically under-represented minorities . The result is an integrated multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary database built upon the framework of a Great Books Core List developed by Mortimer Adler (1902-2001) nearly 50 years ago.

11. Livy - Biography
livy (64 or 59 BC AD 17). Titus Livius great historian. livy was uniqueamong Roman historians in that he played no part in politics.
Livy (64 or 59 BC - AD 17)
Titus Livius' History of Rome became a classic in his own lifetime and exercised a profound influence on the style and philosophy of historical writing down to the 18th century. His family apparently did not belong to the senatorial class and Livy does not seem to have embarked on a political or forensic profession. He is first heard of in Rome after Augustus had restored stability and peace to the empire by his decisive naval victory at Actium in 31 BC. Most of his life must have been spent at Rome, and at an early stage he attracted the interest of Augustus and was even invited to supervise the literary activities of the young Claudius (the future emperor). In one of the few recorded anecdotes about him, Augustus called him a "Pompeian", implying an outspoken and independent turn of mind. Livy began by composing and publishing in units of five books, the length of which was determined by the size of the ancient papyrus roll. As his material became more complex, however, he abandoned this symmetrical pattern and wrote 142 books. Books 11-20 and 46-142 have been lost. The later books after Book 45 are known only from summaries. In his letters the statesman Pliny the Younger records that Livy was tempted to abandon the enterprise but found that the task had become too fascinating to give it up; he also mentions a citizen of Cádiz who came all the way to Rome for the sole satisfaction of gazing at the great historian.

12. Battle Of Saguntum: Polybius And Livy
Battle of Saguntum Comparison of Polybius and livy. livy, a Roman bornand breed, takes a more national outlook on the events at Saguntum.
Battle of Saguntum: Comparison of Polybius and Livy
The battle of Saguntum as told by Polybius and Livy gives two separate accounts of the same battle and the events leading up to it. The most significant force shaping these two authors is most likely the nationalities of the two men. The differences in the styles and facts between these two stories are extensive. While neither side fully identifies with Carthage, one author definitely gives a more well rounded and evenly balanced account. The two histories differ not only in facts about the battle, but also in the events leading up to the battle as well as how Hannibal is depicted.
The nationality of a writer in reference to the country he/she is examining, is the key to understanding the point of view from which a story is told. In this comparison, Polybius is a foreign writer living in Rome while writing about it. Polybius being born a Greek allows him to step outside the nationalism of Rome and view the battle of Saguntum in a more unbiased form. Livy, a Roman born and breed, takes a more national outlook on the events at Saguntum. His views express a more opinionated and biased tone. Livy also wrote almost 200 years after the battle, during the height of the Roman Empire. This period was subject to extreme nationalism in literature. This movement must also account for the numerous pro-Roman themes in Livy account and other works of the time such as Virgil's Aeneid. With these attributes now stated, a more in-depth analysis of these works can commence. To begin, a comparison of the most principle character must take place. Hannibal is the most decorated general ever to grace a Carthage battlefield. The way he is depict by the two authors is key in understanding their stances on the events of Saguntum.

"An exciting and sophisticated approach to a major author in the Latin canon who has been much ignored. Feldherr's writing is clear and intelligent and admirably reflects his engagement in the material. The close analysis is extraordinarily perceptive and innovativea real pleasure to read."Ann Vasaly, author of Representations "[Feldherr] persuasively establishes civic spectacle as a broad category under which to examine the rhetorical strategies of both the makers and the writers of history."Ralph Hexter, University of California, Berkeley DESCRIPTION (back to top) Public spectaclefrom the morning rituals of the Roman noble to triumphs and the shows of the Arenaformed a crucial component of the language of power in ancient Rome. The historian Livy (c. 60 B.C.E.-17 C.E.), who provides our fullest description of Rome's early history, presents his account of the growth of the Roman state itself as something to be seena visual monument and public spectacle. Through analysis of several episodes in Livy's History , Andrew Feldherr demonstrates the ways in which Livy uses specific visual imagery to make the reader not only an observer of certain key events in Roman history but also a participant in those events. This innovative study incorporates recent literary and cultural theory with detailed historical analysis to put an ancient text into dialogue with contemporary discussions of visual culture.

Preface. However it will be, it will help nevertheless that I have myself considered the memory of the public deeds accomplished by the first People of all the lands to the best of my ability; and if in such a great crowd of writers my fame becomes obscure, with the nobility and greatness of those who eclipse my name I should console myself. The matter is, moreover, one of immense work, that over a seven hundred year period it be found out, and because having started from tiny beginnings it [the state] has grown to such an extent that now under its own greatness it labours. On the other hand, also, for most readers I do not doubt but that the first origins and the matters nearest to those origins will furnish less enjoyment as they hurry on to those new matters by which a long pre-eminent People's strength is itself destroying itself. I myself, on the contrary, will seek this reward also for my labor: that from the contemplation of those evils which our age saw through so many years, for as long surely as I seek again those ancient times in my mind, I will avert myself, free from all care which in the mind of a writer, even if it does not turn him from the truth, nevertheless can cause him trouble.

    Allentown, Penn. 17 October 1871
    Livy darling, this lecture will never do. I hate
    don't have to lecture!


    Wilkesbarre, Penn. 18 October 1871

    nothing he would fix it. I said go
    , is too many for me....

    Milford, Mass. 31 October 1871

    convulsed Boston
    Boston, Mass. 1 November 1871 word of it, for I never saw a lecture go off so magnificently before. I tell you it made me feel like me old self again. I wanted to talk a week. People say Boston audiences ain't responsive. People lie. Boston audiences get perfectly uproarious when they get started. I am satisfied with to-night! BACK TO TOUR SCHEDULE Worcester, Mass. 9 November 1871 Livy darling, am just in from the lecture just in from talking to 1700 of the staidest, puritanical people you ever saw one of the hardest gangs to move, that ever was. By George the next time I come here I mean to put some cathartic pills in my lecture. The confounded chairman sat on the stage behind me a thing I detest my platform I will have no more of this.
