Translated by John C. Rolfe

The War with Catiline, also known as the Catiline (Latin: De coniuratione Catilinae or Bellum Catilinae) is the first story published by the Roman historian Salustius. It is a chronicle of the attempt to overthrow the Roman rule taken by Catiline in 63 BC, probably written between 44 and 40 BC, 20 years after the events described. The story begins with a short introduction about the nature of man, history, and the short autobiography of Salustius himself. Later, the historian describes Catiline himself and presents his political ambitions. According to Salustius, Catiline is an enemy of law, order, and morality. It is a model of all the behaviors that the writer considers to be disastrous for Rome.
