Livy’s Women explores the profound historiographical questions arising from the explicit insertion of women in the socio-political canvas of Livy’s monumental history of Rome and the Roman people. This theoretically informed study of Livy’s Ab Urbe Condita (From the Foundation of the City) charts the multifarious links between episodes containing references to women in prominent roles and the historian’s treatment of Rome’s evolutionary foundation narrative.
