Abstract

Dans sa traduction du passage de Suétone, Galba, XII, 1, H. Ailloud a, semblet-il, ignoré le caractère technique du vocabulaire employé par le biographe. Il en résulte des erreurs d'interprétation et une déformation de la portée historique de ce texte. La psychologie des empereurs ne répond pas à des schémas abstraits chez Suétone ; elle s'exprime par la confrontation vivante entre l'individu et la réalité politique impériale. Ces remarques visent à éclairer le caractère fructueux de la collaboration entre philologues et historiens pour une meilleure approche de l'histoire. In his French translation of Suetonius' Galba, XII, 1, H. Ailloud did not pay enough attention to the technical character of the vocabulary used by the biographer. As a result, there are errors of interpretation and the historical importance of the text is distorted. In Suetonius' work, the psychological portraits of Roman emperors do not correspond to abstract models ; they are expressive of actual confrontation between individuals and the reality of imperial politics. This paper aims to point out the need for fruitful collaboration between philologists and historians in their search for new approaches to Roman political history.
