Update on Roman Civism

For several months I have been away working on various projects. Most of this last summer was spent in Minneapolis. The manuscript on Roman civism is moving along with 26 chapters in draft. I have been making timelines on some topics. Currently I am working on drafting a chapter on Camillus (see my description of him in "discussion"). He may be highly fictionalized by Livy and others, but he was the most notable commander in the fifth and fourth centuries and, if the record is not corrupted, he lived a long life of about eighty years. The ancient sources created him into an ideal leader according to Roman military virtues. He is dashing, exciting, honorable, pious, and courageous.

My webpage has been down for about a month, but is back and I hope to write again soon.
