Sallust's book documents two important historical events in the Roman Empire, the Jurgatine War and the Conspiracy of Catiline. They occur at a time the Romans had acquired great comfort in their lives. Sallust describes this comfort as having a detrimental effect on Roman society with money more important than glory.

Sallust (86c. 35 bc) is the earliest Roman historian of whom complete works survive, a senator of the Roman Republic and younger contemporary of Cicero, Pompey and Julius Catilines War tells of the conspiracy in 63 bc led by L.

Sergius Catilina), The Jugurthine War (about Rome's war against the Numidians from to BC), and the Histories (of which only fragments survive).Price: $ The Jugurthine War offers a graphic depiction of the war against the king of Numidia, highlighting the power struggles in Rome and the brutal battles in Africa.

Nevertheless, it is clear from these pieces, as well as from the text of 'The Conspiracy of Catiline', that for Sallust it was not the outbreak of civil war in 49 but the ascension and domination of Pompey, following the death of Sulla in 78 that saw the end of political liberty in Rome, and he wrote his history of the years to Author: Sabidius.

Sallust's principal works are two historical monographs: Bellum Catilinae, on the Catilinarian conspiracy, and an account of the Jugurthine War, Bellum Jugurthinum. Sallust's Historiae is extant. Sallust (c. 86– c. 35/34 bce) described the conspiracy of the Roman patrician Catiline in the Bellum Catilinae (43–42 bce; Catiline’s War), and his Bellum Jugurthinum (41–40 bce; The Jugurthine War) focused on the war against Jugurtha, the king of Numida (roughly present-day Algeria).

Upon hearing of the death of Publius Cornelius Lentulus Sura and the other conspirators at Rome, many men deserted his army, reducing the size from ab to a mere 3, Catiline and his ill-equipped army began to march towards Gaul, however they were blocked by Quintus Caecilius Metellus Celer (the Known for: Second Catilinarian Conspiracy.

The Jugurthine War was a Roman intervention into a civil war in Numidia. Again, the significance is less the war itself and more the problems with Rome itself that it put on display. Rome’s antagonist, Jugurtha, had a great deal of success in finding allies by bribing Roman officials, and.
