=============================
Sallust (86 B.C.E – 35 B.C.E.) was a Roman politician who later became an historian. He was born c. 86 B.C.E., in Amiternum near modern L’Aquila (56 miles from Rome).
In 52 B.C.E. he was elected a tribune, but was expelled from the Senate two years later due to his actions against Cicero and Milo.
Sallust joined Julius Caesar and commanded a legion in 49, and was appointed the first governor of Africa Nova. Caesar's assassination in 44 changed the course of Sallust’s life, and he shifted away from politics to focused solely on historical and political writing.
He died c. 35 B.C.E., having lived the remainder of his life away from the public eye.
C. Sallustii Crispi Opera Omnia quae Extant is a compilation of several of Sallust’s works including the famous "War Against Catiline" and "The Jugurthine War" (or "War Against Jugurtha"). The "War Against Caitiline" concerned the second Catilinarian Conspiracy of 65 B.C.E, a plot devised by the Roman Senator Catiline along with other aristocrats to overthrow the Roman Senate. Sallust characterized Caitiline as a symbol of the moral decline of Rome. "The Jugurthine War" also emphasized moral decline through the lens of the Roman conquest of the Numidian King, Jugurtha.
