A chronological account of the years and the events of the Roman Commonwealth from the founding of the city in 753 B.C. to the Code of Justinian in A.D. 534. The yearly listings are printed in bold numerals and serve as a rapid locator for the searcher. The annual headnotes contain citations that attach the entry to supporting vouchers in classical literature. Yet, the binding theme of this work is the universal magnetism of the Roman language. No age – whether the Regal Period of the kings or the Republican Period of the consuls or the Imperial Period of the emperors – stood outside the tidal draw of Lingus Latina.

Reviews

“This unique chronology stands alone among the endless accounts of the Commonwealth which can be found in any library. This book offers scholar and layman alike a resource not available before. For the first time, the reader possesses a volume having the capacity to unfurl the ages of Rome as a banner, rolled open in a continuum. The entire length of its history, from the founding of the city to the coming of the Dark Ages, is fully delineated in sequential order ... The names, in particular, make the pageant of Rome the most fascinating of all human scrolls. Many of the passing figures are described in contemporaneous accounts: the kings of the Regal Period (753-510 B.C.), the consuls of the Republican Period (509-28 B.C.), and the emperors of the Imperial Period (27 B.C. – A.D. 565) ...” – Rev. Reginald Foster, Gregorian University, Vatican City

“ ... Without Latin, how can anyone truly grasp St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas and Erasmus, not to mention Descartes and Newton and countless others who worked in the language? Without Latin, the Lingus Latina, there is no sense of history, no sense of continuity ...” – The New York Times International
