about

Despite the fact that the Roman Republic came to an undeniable end in 31 BC with the accession of the emperor Augustus, the memory of the Republic persisted. This book explores how that memory manifested itself, serving as an avenue for dissent as well as imperial propaganda, before gradually fading over the course of the early Empire (AD 14-117). Presenting case-studies of several imperial authors and key Roman monuments, it also examines the close relationship between memory and history in Roman thought, informed by modern studies of historical memory.
Alain Gowing is Associate Professor of Classics at the University of Washington. He is the author of The Triumviral Narratives of Appian and Cassius Dio (Ann Arbor, 1992) and is on the editorial board of both the Bryn Mawr Classical Review and Classical Antiquity.
