Livius was created in the 1990s and desperately needs an update to the modern age. We’re currently moving to a different platform. However, COVID makes collaboration between the the webbuilder and the webmaster quite difficult. That ugly disease has also taken away several people close to the webmaster. Besides, he needs to make a living.
We hope to finish the transfer in August 2023. Until then, we must limit additional work. We must disappoint students asking for photos and will not be able to answer the usual questions. Nor can we make improvements to the texts on the website.
We are sorry. Although we believe students should visit libaries, not websites, it’s been an honor and a privilege to help students and answer their questions. But at the moment, we cannot answer e-mail.

Before you write
- You are always welcome to send suggestions to improve this site, but please mention the page to which you refer.
- Do you need help for an assignment? Please first check the library! Although the internet offers many resources, it cannot yet be a substitute for a visit to the library.
- Questions about the books by professional academicians? Write them, not me. They are to serve society and will answer any question. If not, you can complain to their superiors, not to me.
- FAQ: go here.
Using texts or photos
