It is excellent to see an updated and revised translation of Jörg Rüpke′s fundamentally important study of the Roman calendar, one which keeps alive its profound learning and provocative originality. Denis Feeney, Princeton University

"At last, thanks to Jörg Rüpke and David Richardson, we have a proper modern, historical account of the Roman calendar.  A thoroughly revised and updated translation of Rüpke′s earlier work, this work affects our understanding of virtually every activity at Rome mediated by time." Clifford Ando, University of Chicago

Rüpke′s Roman Calendar offers a rich critique of received ideas about republican attitudes to time and the evolution of the calendar; it will surely provoke much radical re–thinking on major problems. John North, London University College

This is an excellent abridgment of Rüpke s standard work Kalender und Öffentlichkeit.  In this historical survey, Rüpke discusses not only the technical details of the evolving Roman calendar but also its significance in the political and historical setting.  The book is an essential resource for anyone interested in Roman civilization. Karl Galinsky, University of Texas


"This book is a very welcome addition to the study of Roman time. R. has long stood in the top tier of scholars working on the Roman calendar. This book is destined to become an indispensable resource for scholars and students wishing to understand the origins and development of the Roman calendar as a mechanism for marking time, but more particularly as a social construct at the mercy of the political powers of the time." (Journal of Roman Studies, 1 August 2013)
