Summary

Augustus (63 BC--14 AD), Rome's first emperor, brought peace and stability to Rome after decades of strife and uncertainty. He established a new institutional framework for the Roman Empire and inspired the ideology that sustained it for the next three hundred years. Jonathan Edmondson collects the most important scholarship on Augustus and his contribution to the development of the Roman state. Jonathan Edmondson situates these papers within major trends of study in Britain, Europe, and North America. Stetching back to the nineteenth century, the essays include four which are published here in English for the first time and illustrations of visual evidence from the principate of Augustus. A chronology, glossary, and guide to further reading accompany original translations of passages in Latin and Greek.
