Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

We begin by going through the text of Sallust, concentrating on Catilina and Jugurtha, and paying special attention to the manner in which statements in the prefaces to the two works are borne out in subsequent narrative. We will then go on to place Sallust within the tradition of Roman historical writing by examining parallel accounts by other ancient historians of Rome, in particular Livy. One of Sallust's most intelligent ancient readers was Saint Augustine. We will therefore conclude with Augustine's interpretations of Sallust, and while doing so will consider selected fragments of the Histories .
