To my wisdom, this has turn into the normal statement for the 1st five books of Livy. it really is fun to learn a few of the modern reviews--none of that have been altogether favorable. them all appeared skeptical of the length--as an identical sized remark on all extant books of Livy may run over 7000 pages. The longest evaluate i'll locate, years after booklet, in simple terms criticized the really brief creation, and frankly had now not seemed a lot additional on the observation itself!

Here's an excerpt from a evaluation discussing the breadth of Ogilvie's scholarship:
Abundant observation on
political heritage and prosopography is furnished,
as a really precious complement to Livy's political
inexperience, his moralizing bent, and his not
unjustified angle that the early historical past of Rome
is mythical at top. enormous realization is
paid to Roman religion-again an important emphasis
in view of Livy's tendency to straddle between
his personal desire to take faith heavily, and the
contemporary skepticism that observed piety as an
affectation for political purposes.
