The Fleet at Ravenna revolts to Vespasian. Cæcina discovers his treasonable purposes, but is seized and imprisoned by his own soldiers. The battle at Bedriacum; the army of Vitellius overthrown, yet.   The only trait Tacitus exhibits repeatedly is his scepticism and this is a vital ingredient of his success as a historian rather than a critique.

Tacitus then wrote a biography of Agricola, expressing his admiration for his father-in-law. Tacitus - The Annals. A senator and historian of the Roman Empire, Publius Cornelius Tacitus, referred to Christ in a work he penned called the Annals in A.D. On one page, he described the.
