“Nothing can be lasting when reason does not rule.”

― Quintus Curtius Rufus, Histories of Alexander the Great

 

This famous and important work by Quintus Curtius was inspired by the celebrated Macedonian ruler Alexander the Great and was written, more than likely, during the reign of Caligula in Rome. The style of Quintus Curtius’s writing was directly in line with Livy, whose work on the people of Rome greatly influenced the writing of “Histories of Alexander the Great.” Curtius describes the strange and mysterious things that Alexander the Great encounters on his military expedition and does so with great historical acumen. This book, along with Livy and Tacitus, should always be considered part of the canon of ancient world texts.

 

This edition is the collected works of Curtius from the series ‘Scriptores latini in usum Delphini.’ This book, along with Livy and Tacitus, should always be considered part of the canon of ancient world texts.
