    Description & More Details

    This unadapted Latin text of the emperor Augustus' autobiography is designed to allow the intermediate/advanced student at the high school or college level to read Latin rapidly, without having constantly to consult a dictionary or grammar. The facing vocabulary and comprehensive grammar notes facilitate a rapid read. The Res Gestae reveals as much about Augustus and his accomplishments through what it omits as what it contains. This primary document allows students rare access to non-literary historical Latin, to the most impressive of all Latin inscriptions: the Res Gestae of Rome's first emperor, his accomplishments as he sought to have them presented.
