Excerpt from On the Social Standing of Freedmen, as Indicated in the Latin Writers, Vol. 1: Preceded by a Discussion of the Use and Meaning of the Words

Social position is not necessarily affected by civic rights. For that reason those aspects of the bondsman's life, (to which many scholars have already devoted their attention), are touched upon here only where they appear to have some bearing upon the sub ject in hand. 'it was enough that the freedman was a freedman. The question then seems to be whether the effect of this opinion upon the man's social standing varied at all at different times and under changed conditions, and if so, what the causes were.

With this end in View, I have examined the Roman authors from Plautus to Suetonius as well as some of the more important later works, including the law codes. The inscriptions are also important in this connection but it was found necessary to omit them, at all events, for the present.
