** Für kurze Zeit zum kindle-Einführungspreis von 0,99 Euro – Preis der achtbändigen Printausgabe: sixty eight Euro **

Theodor Mommsen: Römische Geschichte. Alle Bände erstmals in einem eBook

• Ca. 2800 Seiten, neu editiert, sprachlich überarbeitet und mit aktualisierter Rechtschreibung

• Mit zahlreichen Anmerkungen, verlinkten Fußnoten, mit Kindle-Inhaltsverzeichnis und einem aktuellen Vorwort des Herausgebers (Juni 2015)

Das Großartige an Mommsens ›Römischer Geschichte‹ – und der Grund, warum es zum Weltbestseller wurde – ist der Mut und die Unbefangenheit, mit der das Werk verfasst wurde. Hier conflict kein kleinkrämerischer, dröge die Zeiten vermessender Historiker am Werk, sondern ein Mann, der schwungvoll und in eleganten Zügen eine vergangene Zeit wieder zum Leben erweckte. So liest sich das Werk oft mehr wie ein spannender historischer Roman, als eine wissenschaftliche Studie – jedoch auf einer Wissensbasis und mit einem Faktenreichtum der beispielhaft ist, und kaum je wieder in dieser shape erreicht wurde.

In einem kühnen Bogen zeichnet Mommsen in den ersten drei Bänden die römische Geschichte von den Anfängen (ca. 750 vor Christus) bis zur Zeit Julius Caesars (100 – 44 v. Chr.), eine Epoche von rund seven-hundred Jahren überspannend. © Redaktion eClassica

Als ersten Deutscher erhielt Theodor Mommsen im Jahre 1902 den Literatur-Nobelpreis

Über den Autor: Es battle ein langer Weg, ehe Christian Matthias Theodor Mommsen (1817 – 1903) endlich eine ordentlich Professur antreten konnte. Er stammte aus einer Pfarrersfamilie, die in Oldesloe (Holstein) ansässig conflict. Ab 1834 besuchte er das Christianeum in Altona und begann im Mai 1838 ein Jurastudium an der Universität Kiel. Seine Leidenschaft aber warfare die Geschichtsschreibung. Mommsen strebte eine wissenschaftliche Karriere an, musste zunächst aber seinen Lebensunterhalt als Aushilfslehrer an zwei Mädchenpensionaten bestreiten.

Doch ab 1847 startete er – dank seiner intellektuellen Brillanz – eine beispielhafte wissenschaftliche Karriere. Er wurde an die Preußische Akademie der Wissenschaften in Berlin berufen und erhielt 1861 einen Lehrstuhl für römische Altertumskunde an der Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität, wo er bis 1885 Vorlesungen hielt. Im Laufe seines Lebens verfasste er mehr als 1500 wissenschaftliche Studien und Abhandlungen zu verschiedenen Forschungsthemen. Seine berühmteste Publikation ist zweifellos die ›Römische Geschichte‹ in mehreren Teilen, die dieses booklet ungekürzt enthält. © Redaktion eClassica
