"The Roman Forum was in many ways the heart of the Roman Empire. Today, the Forum exists in a fragmentary state, having been destroyed and plundered by barbarians, aristocrats, citizens and priests over the past two millennia. Enough remains, however, for archaeologists to reconstruct its spectacular buildings and monuments. This richly illustrated volume provides an architectural history of the central section of the Roman Forum during the Empire (31 BCE-476 CE), from the Temple of Julius Caesar to the monuments on the slope of the Capitoline hill. Bringing together state-of-the-art technology in architectural illustration and the expertise of a prominent Roman archaeologist, this book offers a unique reconstruction of the Forum, providing architectural history, a summary of each building's excavation and research, scaled digital plans, elevations, and reconstructed aerial images that not only shed light on the Forum's history but vividly bring it to life. With this book, scholars, students, architects and artists will be able to visualize for the first time since antiquity the character, design and appearance of the famous heart of ancient Rome"--

Rome in triumph
Biondo Flavio, 1392-1463, author
Cambridge, Massachusetts ; Harvard University Press, 2016-
volume I. Books I-II.

"Biondo Flavio (1392-1463), humanist and historian, was a pioneering figure in the Renaissance discovery of antiquity; famously, he was the author who popularized the term 'Middle Age' to describe the period between the fall of the Roman Empire and the revival of antiquity in his own time. While serving a number of Renaissance popes, he inaugurated an extraordinary program of research into the history, cultural life, and physical remains of the ancient world. The capstone of this research program, Rome in Triumph (1459), has been said to bear comparison with the Encyclopédie of Diderot as the embodiment of the ideals of an age, seeking as it does to answer the overarching question of humanists from Petrarch to Machiavelli: what made Rome great? To answer the question Biondo undertakes a comprehensive reconstruction of Rome's religion, government, military organization, customs and institutions over its thousand-year history. This volume contains the first edition of the Latin text since 1559 and the first translation into any modern language."--

Rome in the East : the transformation of an empire
Ball, Warwick, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2016
Preface -- Historical background -- The princely states -- Rome east of the frontiers -- The towns and cities -- The countryside -- Secular architecture : imperial stamp or imperial veneer? -- Buildings of religion : the resurgence of the east -- The transformation of an empire.

"Rome in the East is an arresting study of the influence of Near Eastern culture on the Roman world, which overturns received wisdom about the spread of European culture to the East. It explores Roman archaeological and architectural remains in the Near East, and includes a survey of the presence of Rome beyond the imperial frontiers eastwards as far as Iran, India, Central Asia and China. The Near Eastern client kingdoms under Roman rule are examined in turn and each are shown to have affected Roman, and ultimately European, history in different but very fundamental ways"--
