The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus was the Emperor of Rome from 161 until his death. Born Marcus Annius Verus, he was adopted by the emperor Antoninus Pius in 138, and married his daughter Annia Galeria Faustina a few years later. He succeeded to the throne without difficulty on Antoninus' death. Marcus Aurelius was educated by the best tutors in Rome and was a devotee of Stoicism. However, he felt with more religious fervour the communion of man in the unity of the universe than most other Stoics. In his later years he wrote the Meditations as a relief from his lonely office, in which he attempts to reconcile his Stoic philosophy of virtue and self-sacrifice with his role as emperor.
As a philosopher Aurelius believed that a divine providence had placed reason in man, and it was in the power of man to be one with the rational purpose of the universe. This is a duty to a man himself and to the citizens of God's State. No man can be injured by another, he can only injure himself. He attempted to be a philosopher-king, which he considered a moral rather than a political ideal. He believed that the moral life leads to tranquility, and stressed the virtues of wisdom, justice, fortitude, and moderation.

  • Other translations than Long's and Staniforth's: Staniforth mentions several. Some of these are public domain and suitable for scanning for Project Gutenberg. In 1898, by G.H. Rendall, "the most lively, scholarly and idiomatic of all English versions." In 1634, by Meric Casaubon, "archaic, cumbrous and involved" [and one is reminded of Middlemarch]. And in 1701, by Jeremy Collier, "strays so far from the original that it is scarcely more than a paraphrase." Of Long's translation of 1862, Staniforth says it is "admirably correct, as literal as a school crib, and ... utterly unreadable." At least in the case of Long, you may judge for yourself.

Marcus Aurelius by Marcus Aurelius Translated by CR Haines, published by Harvard University Press.
Marcus Aurelius
Translated by C. R. Haines These reflections on ethical, religious, and existential questions were written in periods of solitude during the emperor's military campaigns. Originally intended for his private guidance and self-admonition, the Meditations has endured as a potent expression of Stoic belief (the influence of Epictetus is apparent throughout) as well as a widely influential personal guide to the moral life. This unique text also provides an intimate look at the ideas and convictions of this fascinating philosopher-emperor.

Marcus Aurelius
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus was born Marcus Annius Verus in C.E. 121 on the 26th April while Hadrian was emperor. His parents died when he was young and young Marcus was adopted by his grandfather. His grandfather saw to it that Marcus Aurelius got an excellent education. At the age of seventeen, Marcus Annius was adopted by his uncle, the new emperor, Aurelius Antoninus Pius, who had been adopted by the emperor Hadrian on the condition that he [Pius] adopt Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus. Marcus and Aurelius Antoninus' daughter Faustina were married and would go on to have five children. However, only the tyrannical Commodus, who would succeed Marcus Aurelius survived past childhood. In C.E. 161, Antoninus died and Marcus Aurelius became Emperor. He made Lucius Verus joint emperor and for the first time two emperors ruled Rome concurrently. Their rule was affected by the wars and plagues that affected the Empire. From 162 to 165, they fought the Pathians under Vologeses III and it was while returning from this engagement that the legions brought a plague back to Rome. From 167-168, Rome was at war with the Marcomanni and upon Verus' death in 169, which left Aurelius sole ruler, the hostilities resumed. It was while fighting this war that he, stationed on the Danube with his troops and living a meloncholy existence, wrote his famous book The Meditations.This book embodies the ideals of the Stoic philosophy.

Marcus Aurelius
Imperator Caesar Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus April 26 March 17 ) (born Marcus Annius Catilius Severus at marriage taking the name Marcus Annius Verus ) was given the name Marcus Aurelius Antoninus upon being name heir to the office of Roman emperor , which he held from A.D. to his death in 180. The name Aurelius means "the golden." His uncle Antoninus Pius adopted him as a son and designated him his successor on February 25 , AD , when Marcus was only seventeen years of age. Antoninus also named Lucius Verus as his successor. When Antoninus died, Marcus accepted the throne on the condition that he and Verus were made joint emperors ( Augusti ), with Verus partly subordinate. The reasons for this are unclear. The joint succession may have been motivated by military exigency. During his reign Marcus Aurelius was almost constantly at war with various peoples outside the Empire. Germanic and other peoples launched many raids along the long European border, particularly into Gaul . (They, in turn, may have been under attack from more warlike tribes farther east.) In Asia, a revitalized

Marcus Aurelius
When Antoninus Pius died, Marcus Aurelius was already in possession of the tribunician power and maius imperium and had been acting as a full co-regent for years. Thus, at the first session of the senate after the death, the only thing that needed to be done after proclaiming Antoninus' deification was to the title Augustus and the office of pontifex maximus bestowed on the new emperor. But Marcus refused unless the full imperial honors were granted to his adoptive brother L. Ceionius Commodus. To this the senate acquiesced, and Marcus himself adopted the name "Antoninus" to perpetuate the memory of his adoptive father, while he bestowed on his brother his own birth name of Verus. Thus, the new co-emperor became known as Lucius Verus. To him Marcus betrothed his eldest daughter. (Born in 150, she would not be able to marry for several years yet.) This event was unheard of in all of Roman history. It is true that in the later period multiple Augusti are known, but if they were of equal status, there was a physical division of the empire among them. Otherwise, when there were two possesors of the tribunician power, one would have a definitely superior position. This is the only time that there were two equal Augusti operating throughout the empire. Yet, even at that, the two new emperors were not quite equal. Marcus was the elder by ten years, and seems to have made the important decisions himself. Though they issued decrees jointly in both their names, Marcus was clearly the guiding force.

Marcus Aurelius
Marcus Aurelius was the emperor of Rome during the second century, A.D. Legend has it that he wrote the Meditations as notes to himself during the many battle campaigns he led against invaders. Far from being warlike, the Meditations ( review or buy take a lofty, spiritual approach to life. The brotherhood of mankind is emphasized, and the power of a gentle, disciplined mind is extolled. The Meditations represent a school of Greek philosophy known as Stoicism - the Stoic ideals involved living a life of honesty, humility, and personal responsibility. Among the Stoic philosophers, great emphasis was placed on the power of decision and thought.

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
Roman Emperor, A.D. 161-180, born at Rome , 26 April, 121; died 17 March, 180. HIS EARLY LIFE (121-161) His father died while Marcus was yet a boy, and he was adopted by his grandfather, Annius Verus. In the first pages of his "Meditations" (I, i-xvii) he has left us an account, unique in antiquity, of his education by near relatives and by tutors of distinction; diligence, gratitude and hardiness seem to have been its chief characteristics. From his earliest years he enjoyed the friendship and patronage on the Emperor Hadrian , who bestowed on him the honour of the equestrian order when he was only six years old, made him a member of the Salian priesthood at eight, and compelled Antoninus Pius immediately after his own adoption to adopt as sons and heirs both the young Marcus and Ceionius Commodus, known later as the Emperor Lucius Verus. In honour of his adopted father he changed his name from M. Julius Aurelius Verus to M. Aurelius Antoninus. By the will of Hadrian he espoused Faustina, the daughter of

18. Marcus Aurelius
Marcus Aurelius (161 180). Marcus Aurelius okamžite jmenoval spoluvladarem Lucia Vera, rovnež adoptovaného Antoninem Piem.
Marcus Aurelius (161 - 180)
, ani Epiktétos nehlásali tak naléhavì a pøesvìdèivì tvrdou morálku, nutnost spoléhat sám na sebe a starat se o druhé. Marcus byl fatalista, možná k tomu trochu pøispìla i mandragora, kterou užíval. Poctivì a dùslednì pøenášel své zásady lidskosti a slušnosti do celého svého životního stylu.
Oèekávaný konflikt s Parthií skuteènì v roce 162 nastal, na východ byl vyslán Lucius Verus. K posílení øímských vojsk na východì byly vyslány i legie z rýnského a hlavnì z dunajského prostoru. Øímané dosáhli pøesvìdèivého vítìzství, obnovili svou prestiž v Arménii, ohrožované parthskou invazí a do rukou vojsk padla i mìsta Seleukie a Ktesifon. Verus mìl na tìchto vítìzstvích jen symbolický podíl, hlavní tíži operací nesl vynikající velitel Avidius Cassius, který se v letech 165 - 166 stal legátem v Sýrii. Roku 166 Verus, bez ohledu na své skuteèné zásluhy, slavil v Øímì triumf.
Pøibližnì v dobì, kdy konèilo východní tažení, došlo v jiné èásti pohranièních zemí k další události, která ohlašovala trvalou pøemìnu svìtové scény. Pøes horní, støední i dolní tok Dunaje se zaèaly valit v mohutných výpadech Germáni i pøíslušníci jiných kmenù. Kmeny opouštìly své bažinaté lesní mýtiny a smìøovaly do bohatších zemích za øímskou hranicí. Dalším impulsem byl s nejvìtší pravdìpodobností pohyb Gótù, kteøí se vydali ze svých tehdejších sídel na Visle jihovýchodním smìrem a s sebou strhávali do pohybu další kmeny. Na øíšské území se draly kmeny Markomanù, Kvádù, Hermundurù, Naristové, Lugiové, Burové, Jazygové, Alanové, Roxolani a další. Války, které z tìchto pøesunù nastaly jsou oznaèovány jako Markomanské, podle kmene, který nesl hlavní tíži bojù.
