Pliny the blog

This blog in English is a parallell site to my Norwegian blog Plinius. I started it during a visit to Bucharest in order to publish in English from abroad.

You will also find library comments in English at my regular web site Post scriptum, which is hosted by my home institution, Oslo University College.

The younger Pliny was the nephew of Plinius (the older). He lived in the early Roman Empire, around 100 AD. He is best known for his colletion of literary letters (Epistolae) - which includes a set of letters exchanged with emperor Trajan, while Pliny served as an imperial delegate in Bithynia.
