The Fragmentary Latin Histories of Late Antiquity (AD 300–620)

Edition, Translation and Commentary

Lieve van Hoof & Peter van Nuffelen, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2020


The first systematic collection of fragmentary Latin historians from the period AD 300–620, this volume provides an edition and translation of, and commentary on, the fragments. It proposes new interpretations of the fragments and of the works from which they derive, whilst also spelling out what the fragments add to our knowledge of Late Antiquity. Integrating the fragmentary material with the texts preserved in full, the volume suggests new ways to understand the development of history writing in the transition from Antiquity to the Middle Ages.
