This is a brief notice of how we are going to break down the three chats on The Histories by Tacitus.
I do think it would be useful if participants familiarize themselves with the subject of ancient historiography and with Tacitus as such, thus we should not ignore the introduction to whatever edition each of us uses. For those who'll stick with the online edition, I'll find something on the internet and will post it a.s.a.p.
So here goes:
January 20: Introduction, Books 1 & 2
February 3: through Book 3
February 17: through Books 4 & 5 (Book 5 breaks off soon, unfortunately)
