Urbs Aeterna and Dutch Painting of Roman Ruins by David A. Levine

These days, calling Rome "eternal" generally evokes the aesthetic notion that the Italian capital possesses an ageless beauty worthy of admiration. In times past, however, using that same term to distinguish the ancient city implied a highly charged political doctrine: that Rome was in fact a permanently enduring sovereignty, destined to remain the world's preeminent power forever. The idea of Rome's eternal dominion originated in classical antiquity, probably during the age of Augustus. Then confined to the province of literature, it found expression in the works of Tibullus, the first writer to designate the capital urbs aeterna, Ovid, Livy, and, of course, Virgil, whose memorable "imperium sine fine" voiced Rome's claim to endless rule for the ages... [This is a chapter excerpted from "Medieval Renaissance Baroque: A Cat's Cradle for Marilyn Aronberg Lavin," edited by David A. Levine and Jack Freiberg (Italica Press, New York, 2010).]
