Description

Henry Fynes Clinton (1781-1852) made an innovative contribution to classical scholarship with this history of the Roman Empire, published in two volumes in 1845 and 1850. Applying a scientific method of analysis to the study of ancient history, he organises the information chronologically in tables, demonstrating the connection between different spheres at various phases of development of the empire. Volume 1 lists the Roman Consuls and the events that took place under their mandate, including significant Greek and Roman literary and cultural achievements. Volume 2 contains appendixes to the first volume including genealogical tables of the emperors and of the Kings of Persia, indices for the authors (including abstracts from selected works), imperial documents, and an index of Christian bishops. The chronological span is from the death of Augustus in 14 CE to the death of Heraclius in 614 CE.
