Pliny the Elder's Natural History

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the mutually beneficial relationship between Roman expansionism and the Natural History. It is Roman power that is credited with allowing the encyclopaedia's global design to be executed, but at the same time the knowledge made accessible by Roman power is thought to be in danger of being erased by the pressures of a unified world.

Keywords:   natural history, roman expansionism, roman power
