This concluding chapter reconsiders some of the main claims of the volume by emphasizing the importance of the ancient Romans for German and British Romanticism. It then surveys some of the reasons why subsequent scholarship and literature has tended to focus so much more on Romantic images of ancient Greece than on those of ancient Rome. From there, it illustrates the fascinating complicities, but also the tensions, between Rome and Romanticism by considering the examples of the Römische Geschichte of the German professor Barthold Georg Niebuhr (1776–1831) and the Lays of Ancient Rome by the English poet, historian, and politician Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–59).

Keywords:   Barthold Georg Niebuhr, Römische Geschichte, Lays of Ancient Rome, Thomas Babington Macaulay
