HISTORIA AUGUSTA
Volumes I–III

While it is our most detailed surviving source for this period, it has more value as an enigmatic work of literary fiction than as history.

COVID-19 Response (March 2020)

 
sit bona librorum et provisae frugis in annum
copia, neu fluitem dubiae spe pendulus horae.
 
May I have a goodly supply of books and of food to last the year;
nor may I waver to and fro with the hopes of each uncertain hour.
 
Horace, Epistles 1.18.109–10
 
As the global community confronts the crisis posed by COVID-19, and individuals are increasingly required to limit contact with others, access to digital resources has become more important than ever before. When libraries and other centers of learning close their doors to limit the virus’ spread, students, scholars, and general readers wishing to consult the Greek and Latin classics are left with relatively few options for pursuing their education, research, and interest in the ancient world.
 
Accordingly, in the spirit of James Loeb’s original vision “to make the beauty and learning, the philosophy and wit of the great writers of ancient Greece and Rome once more accessible” at a time when they are sorely needed, the Trustees of the Loeb Classical Library and Harvard University Press announce that subscriptions to the digital Loeb Classical Library are made free to schools and universities impacted by COVID-19 until June 30, 2020. Contact loebclassics_sales@harvard.edu for more details.
