Abstract

In the opening chapter on Sulla and the origins of the concept of bellum civile Carsten Hjort Lange and Frederik Juliaan Vervaet revisit a number of striking and revealing fragments of Sulla’s lost Res Gestae. Embedded in their wider historical and historiographical context, these select fragments – amongst other things – strongly suggest that the term bellum civile came into existence in the immediate aftermath of the civil wars of the 80s BCE and may well have been coined by none less than Sulla himself, in a manner quite characteristic of his unapologetic political methods and conduct.
