To my wisdom, this has turn into the normal statement for the 1st five books of Livy. it really is a laugh to learn the various modern reviews--none of which have been altogether favorable. them all appeared skeptical of the length--as the same sized remark on all extant books of Livy could run over 7000 pages. The longest assessment i may locate, years after booklet, in simple terms criticized the relatively brief creation, and frankly had no longer appeared a lot extra on the remark itself!

Here's an excerpt from a evaluation discussing the breadth of Ogilvie's scholarship:
Abundant remark on
political heritage and prosopography is furnished,
as a really useful complement to Livy's political
inexperience, his moralizing bent, and his not
unjustified perspective that the early heritage of Rome
is mythical at most sensible. significant recognition 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.

Commun. S. 50 (1 g6o), 114-18). Now the cult of Aeneas never reached Rome, although the legend did, and the explanation of the role played by Lavinium in the Trojan origins of Rome may lie in the significance of that fact coupled with the peculiar nature of the R o m a n Penates.
