Ammianus' Julian

Narrative and Genre in the Res Gestae

Alan J. Ross

Oxford Classical Monographs

  • Offers a major reinterpretation of Ammianus' Res Gestae, drawing on detailed analysis of his depiction of several key events in Julian's reign
  • Throws new light on the study of intertextuality and narratology in historiography which will benefit analyses of all ancient historiographical texts
  • Re-assesses Ammianus' relationship with contemporary "Julianic" literature, situating him more clearly within a fourth-century literary milieu
