Congratulations to Richard Talbert on the publication of World and Hour in Roman Minds: Exploratory Essays (Oxford University Press, 2023).

World and Hour in Roman Minds: Exploratory Essays seeks to penetrate Romans’ consciousness of space and time, aspects of antiquity currently attracting intense interest. Historian Richard Talbert presents here a cohesive selection of nineteen essays, published over the course of thirty years, all but one previously appearing in widely scattered publications. Now reinforced by an Introduction and textually and visually updated, these essays document the progress of pioneering efforts to glimpse the worldviews of Romans up and down the social scale–even Julius Caesar and Claudius–and to reassess the communicative role of Roman mapping along with its strengths and limitations.”
