    Gibbon's Leben : Aus dem Englischen übersetzt und mit erläuternden Anmerkungen begleitet von Edward Gibbon (Waldstein)
    Waldstein: An obligatory read for anybody who enjoys the Decline and Fall. Gibbon's complex personality is more than palpable in his magnum opus, but it can be experienced with much greater force in his uniquely spiritual (in the secular sense of the word!), exquisitely written, stylishly candid and much too short Memoirs.… (mehr)

    The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire {abridged by Lentin and Norman} von Edward Gibbon (Waldstein)
    Waldstein: Excellent abridged edition to start with before tackling the real thing. Reprints 28 complete chapters (out of 71, the rest are supplied with short summaries). Gibbon's footnotes are complete, the numerous Latin phrases in them are translated. Very nice introduction (plus occasional footnotes) by the editors, Antony Lentin and Brian Norman. On the downside, the volume is not especially handy in paperback and the font is rather smallish.… (mehr)

The first four volumes are highly intriguing and very interesting. Gibbon has a very interesting take on Rome’s fall and its connection to what he was experiencing in the 1770s. Given this connection to him, it’s hard to separate his bias, but the bias makes sense. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, and I can’t wait to read the last four volumes. ( )

Il 27 giugno nel 1787, lo storico inglese Edward Gibbon completò il volume finale de “La Storia del Declino e della Caduta dell’Impero Romano”, nel suo giardino di Losanna, in Svizzera.
Nel diario, scrisse: “Non intendo nascondere le prime emozioni di gioia per il recupero della mia libertà e forse anche la speranza della mia fama … Mi ero abituato ad una vecchia e piacevole compagnia”.
La Storia richiese 20 anni di lavoro e sei volumi di stampa per essere completata. Traccia la traiettoria della civiltà occidentale dalla massima espansione e splendore dell’Impero romano alla caduta di Bisanzio.
Il libro fu un grande successo, divenne il modello per tutti i futuri testi storici. Gibbon è considerato il primo storico moderno dell’antica Roma.
Ha scritto: “La storia è, in effetti, poco più che il registro dei crimini, delle follie e della sventura dell’umanità”.

On this day June 27 in 1787, English historian Edward Gibbon completed the final volume of “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire”, in his garden in Lausanne, Switzerland.
In his diary, he wrote, “I will not dissemble the first emotions of joy on the recovery of my freedom and perhaps the establishment of my fame … I had taken my everlasting leave of an old and agreeable companion.”
The history took 20 years and six volumes to complete. It traces the trajectory of Western Civilization from the height of the Roman Empire to the fall of Byzantium.
The book was a sensation, becoming the model for all future historical texts. Gibbon is considered the first modern historian of ancient Rome. He wrote:
“History … is, indeed, little more than the register of the crimes, follies, and misfortune of mankind.” ( )

I wish I could keep track of all the various emperors. There are just far too many for me too keep track of.

Lots of unfamiliar names, but the story is familiar with the vices of high office being told over and over interspersed occasionally with a ruler worthy of respect. I was struck by the similarity to some parts of the Book of Mormon. During the Roman Empire there were lots of scheming power hungry monarchs and aspirants to the throne, interspersed occasionally with honorable leaders caught in intrigue, who might or might not have retained their virtue after having the throne and the attendant intrigues against their authority once the throne is thrust upon them.

With books that claim to be "The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" there are so many editions that it sometimes seems hard to tell quite what one is getting. I was fortunate to have an audible.com edition and a Kindle edition that often had the very same words for paragraphs in a row. I just regret that neither had a decent table of contents, and that the chapter numbers were wildly different.

During the Roman Empire there were lots of scheming power hungry monarchs and aspirants to the throne, interspersed occasionally with honorable leaders caught in intrigue, who might or might not have retained their virtue after having the throne and the attendant intrigues against their authority once the throne is thrust upon them. That reminded me of the events in the Book of Ether in the Book of Mormon. The story of the Roman Empire greeted me with lots of unfamiliar names. It is also filled with the familiar story of the vices of high office and occasionally interspersed with a ruler worthy of respect. Even those who were honorable before having the throne thrust upon them often had difficulty simultaneously maintaining their honor, their life and possession of the throne.

I especially enjoyed the old English sentence construction and the expanded vocabulary that I found running through my mind as I worked my way through this considerable work.

Since I did not post a review when I read it in 2012, here it is. ( )

Erste Worte
Im zweiten Jahrhundert der christlichen Zeitrechnung umfaßte das römische Reich die schönsten Länder der Erde und den zivilisiertesten Teil des Menschengeschlechts. Alter Ruhm und disziplinierte Tapferkeit bewachten die Grenzen dieser ausgedehnten Monarchie. The gentle but powerful influence of laws and manners had gradually cemented the union of the provinces. Their peaceful inhabitants enjoyed and abused the advantages of wealth and luxury. The image of a free constitution was preserved with decent reverence: the Roman senate appeared to possess the sovereign authority, and devolved on the emperors all the executive powers of government. During a happy period of more than fourscore years, the public administration was conducted by the virtue and abilities of Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, and the two Antonines. It is the design of this, and of the two succeeding chapters, to describe the prosperous condition of their empire; and after wards, from the death of Marcus Antoninus, to deduce the most important circumstances of its decline and fall; a revolution which will ever be remembered, and is still felt by the nations of the earth.
