An examination of the popular reception of Cicero during the long 18th century, with a detailed examination of the biographical and anecdotal traditions, both of which have been seriously neglected by scholars. This chapter examines a number of eighteenth sources which have received very little previous scholarly attention, and presents an innovative view of Cicero's influence in the period.
