(p.194) Conclusion: Encyclopedias and Monuments
Pliny the Elder's Natural History

Trevor Murphy (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This conclusion considers the conceptual importance of the Roman emperor as arbiter of what might be known about nature, the unspoken tension between the Natural History and the emperor, and the question of on what the encyclopaedia's authority was thought to rest. It also discusses the impact of the writing of the Natural History on later European civilization.
