    Mommsen's The History of Rome was a major influence on the concept of ancient history during the last half of the nineteenth century. His book was translated into every major language and gained favour with a huge international public. It has remained the most indispensable core work in the field of Roman studies, its lasting success lying in Mommsen's 'incomparable mastery of every aspect of civilization'.
