Excerpt from C. Iulii Caesaris Commentarii De Bello CIVILI

Denselben Zweck verfolgt die Bezeichnung der Daten. Ich bin bei derselben fast durchaus den sachkundigen Berechnungen des Obersten Stoffe] gefolgt. Wenn ich mir auch bewußt bin, wie vieles an ihnen noch unsicher ist und bleiben muß, so halte ich es doch in bezug auf das Verständnis der Begebenheiten für sehr wesentlich, daß ihre chronologische Folge in einen wenn auch nur wahrscheinlichen oder gar nur möglichen Zusammenhang gebracht ist. Leider hat sich eine Undeutlichkeit dabei nicht ganz ver meiden lassen. Da die Daten aus typographischen Gründen nicht auf dem inneren Rand der einzelnen Seiten, wie ich wünschte, untergebracht werden konnten, sind sie öfters in die recht unlieb same Nähe der Inhaltsangaben auf dem äußeren Rand gerückt. Für die allgemeine Übersicht sind die wichtigsten Daten dann noch in der Einleitung zu einer besonderen Zeittafel vereinigt.

Informazioni sull'autore (2018)

Born into a noble family that had fallen from influence, Gaius Julius Caesar secured his future by allying himself early in his life with the popular general and senator, Gaius Marius. Although Caesar's refusal to divorce his wife Cordelia led him to flee Rome for a period, the political and military campaigns he conducted upon his return both renewed and increased his prominence. With Senators Crassus and Pompey, he formed the First Triumvirate in 60 and 59 B.C., and for the next 10 years served as governor of several Roman provinces. His decision to assume the position of Roman consul led to war, to an encounter in Egypt with Cleopatra, and ultimately to his position as dictator of Rome. His increasing popularity and power, brought about by the numerous reforms he initiated, led to his assassination by a group of conspirators who feared he would try to make himself king. Caesar left posterity his accounts of his campaigns in Gaul (modern France) and against his rival Pompey. Although the campaigns were self-serving in the extreme, they nevertheless provide an immensely valuable historical source for the last years of the Republic. His works mirror his character. He was an individual of outstanding genius and versatility: a brilliant soldier, a stylist whose lucidity reflects his clarity of vision, an inspiring leader, and a personality of hypnotically attractive charm. But the verdict of antiquity rests upon his single, altogether Roman, flaw-he could not bear to be the second man in the state. To preserve his position, he made war on his political enemies and brought down the Republic. Then, as he was incapable of restoring the republican regime, which had furnished his political contemporaries with a sense of freedom, power, and self-respect, he was stabbed to death by his own friends.
