To my wisdom, this has develop into the traditional observation for the 1st five books of Livy. it really is fun to learn the various modern reviews--none of that have been altogether favorable. them all appeared skeptical of the length--as the same sized remark on all extant books of Livy might run over 7000 pages. The longest evaluation i may locate, years after e-book, in simple terms criticized the quite brief creation, and frankly had now not regarded a lot additional on the observation itself!

Here's an excerpt from a evaluate discussing the breadth of Ogilvie's scholarship:
Abundant observation on
political heritage and prosopography is furnished,
as a truly precious complement to Livy's political
inexperience, his moralizing bent, and his not
unjustified angle that the early background of Rome
is mythical at top. huge 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.
