Welcome to Library!


The development of writing and books are the greatest achievements of humanity.Everything else-science, technology, literature, philosophy-is the fruit of writing and of thoughts that have been written down.


In order to study the history of humanity, especially science, philosophy and culture, it is necessary for valuable resources such as textbooks, monographs and articles to be accessible. With this goal in mind, we decided to create a virtual library in multiple languages. Hamlet Isaxanli’s “History of Science and Philosophy: Ancient Period” class for PhD students at Khazar University provided the idea for this virtual library. We have begun to collect materials.


We wish success to our readers!

The Annals

The Annals is Tacitus’ final work, covering the period from the death of Augustus Caesar in 14 AD. He wrote at least sixteen books, but books 7–10 and parts of books 5, 6, 11 and 16 are missing. Book 6 ends with the death of Tiberius and books 7–12 presumably covered the reigns of Caligula and Claudius. The remaining books cover the reign of Nero, perhaps until his death in June 68 or until the end of that year to connect with the Histories. The second half of book 16 is missing, ending with the events of 66. We do not know whether Tacitus completed the work; he died before he could complete his planned histories of Nerva and Trajan and no record survives of the work on Augustus Caesar and the beginnings of the Roman Empire, with which he had planned to finish his work. The Annals is one of the earliest secular historical records to mention Christ, which Tacitus does in connection withNero’s persecution of the Christians.
