    Imperial Rome and Britain's Language of Empire 1600–1837.Norman Vance - 2000 - History of European Ideas 26 (3):211-224.
    Britain's pre-Victorian overseas expansion stimulated Roman comparisons. But imperial Rome was a warning as much as an inspiration to future empires, a harsh and uncomfortable model for Britain as a former Roman colony. Roman dignity was claimed for British monarchs and achievements by Dryden and others. But there were mixed feelings about identifying expanding Britain as a second Roman Empire.

    Secular apocalyptic and Thomas Hardy.Norman Vance - 2000 - History of European Ideas 26 (3-4):201-210.
