On the Laws

Gelesen von Geoffrey Edwards

(3,727 Sterne; 11 Bewertungen)

On the Laws (Latin: De Legibus) was written shortly after Cicero's "On the Commonwealth" during the last years of the Roman Republic. The three surviving books (out of an original six), in order, expound on Cicero's beliefs in Natural Law, recast the religious laws of Rome (in reality a rollback to the religious laws under the king Numa Pompilius) and finally talk of his proposed reforms to the Roman Constitution.

Very well done, and he pronounced the Latin names properly, except Cicero's!
