About this item
In 1758, the German Jesuit Ignaz Weitenauer published a neo-Latin tragedy “Annibal moriens” [The Death of Hannibal] on the death of the Carthaginian general. In both style and content, the work largely followed the mode of ancient literature. The new edition is presented alongside a German prose translation and includes commentary and interpretation focused on the play’s reception of the ancient world.
