  JORDANES - LoveToKnow Article on JORDANES   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
This, according to the manner of speaking of that day, is the meaning of his words ante conversic,nem measn, though it is quite possible that he may at the same time have renounced the Arian creed of his forefathers, which it is clear that he no longer held when he wrote his Gothic history.
The Getica of Jordanes shows Gothic sympathies; but these are probably due to an imitation of the tone of Cassiodorus, from whom he draws practically all his material.
He was not himself a Goth, belonging to a confederation of Germanic tribes, embracing Alans and Scyrians, which had come under the influence of the Ostrogoths settled on the lower Danube; and his own sympathies are those of a member of this confederation.

 Getica - FAQ
The name "Getica" is meant to represent "the saga of the Getae", just as the "Odyssey" means "the saga of Odysseus".
On top of the basic concepts of the RPG, Getica brings a special approach of the combat and magic systems, as well as tight integration of the quests and player actions in the story line.
For example, we won't change anything in the description of the Norse gods, since that domain is well known and preserved, but we have invented the magic items that Paduroiul has and the marriage between him and Muma Padurii.

To this skeleton, Getica adds a special approach of the magic powers available in the game and a dynamic, real-time combat system, which will emphasize both the character's power and the player's skill.
Due to the fact that one of Getica's main goals is to present the getic civilization both from a spiritual point of view, as well as in the context of the historic events that it has been part of, the project was split in two parts from the beginning.
The action of the first game in the Getica series happens at the same time with an historic event that radically changed the Getae: the coming of the prophet Zalmoxe and the birth of his religion.

 Battle of Chalons - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The only parts still securely in Roman control were the Mediterranean coastline and a band of varying width that ran from Aureliani (present-day Orléans) upstream along the Loire, across and downstream along the Rhone.
Attila, following his people's customs, had his diviners examine the entrails of a sacrifice that morning, which foretold disaster would befall the Huns and that one of the leaders of his opponents would be killed.
Jordanes states that Theodoric was thrown from his horse and trampled to death by his advancing men, but also mentions that another story had Theodoric slain by the spear of the Ostrogoth Andag.

He has put together his Romana and Getica (written originally for his other friend, Castalius) in one volume, "so that when you understand the devastation of the various nations you may long to be freed from all worldly tribulation and turn yourself towards God, who is true freedom.
The preface to the Getica (properly: De origine actibusque Getarum, clearly intending a parallel to the Romana) is much less helpful than that of the Romana, for less of it is directly attributable to Jordanes.
Jordanes' preface to the Getica reminded us that the beginning and end of the work were the places which would show his touch the most clearly; this is particularly true of the end.

 Getica
Getica or The Origin and Deeds of the Goths (Latin: De origine aebusque Getarum), is the ancient history of the Goths written by Jordanes.
It is most likely to have been written in Constantinople about 551AD.

 "The Getica of Jordanes - Books I-III" (1999)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
Jordanes' Getica has been taken by ancient and modern historians at face value concerning the origin and chronological narrative history of the Gothic peoples for many enduring centuries, in particular the geographical introductory books I-III.
Since the origin point of the Goths as described by Jordanes in the first three books of the Getica is to be found beyond the scope of Roman territory, one must certainly be wary when reading of fabled lands and peoples that lie just beyond the limits of the known world.
Jordanes, as he mentions in his third book of the Getica, depends on Ptolemy for his reasoning behind the choice of Scandza which shows that his choice of such a location is poor judgement given that Scandza is not well attested to in earlier sources.

Because of this his name takes many forms: in Jordanes' Getica he is Ermanaricus, in the Old English epic Beowulf he is Eormenric, in Old Norse he is Jörmunrekkr, and in Middle High German Ermenrich.
He is mentioned in two Roman sources—from the writings of Ammianus and in Getica by the 6th century historian Jordanes.
According to Ammianus, Ermanaric is 'a most warlike king' who eventually commits suicide, facing the aggression of the Huns, who invaded his territories in the 370s.

 Cassiodorus: Chapter 2 (Notes)
Notice that the passage in the Getica, 46.243, dealing with the end of the empire in 476 is a word-for-word repetition of the description of the same event in his Romana, 345.
[[24.]] Taking the sixty chapters of the Getica and dividing them by twelve (the number of books in the Gothic History), it is not unreasonable to assume that each book of the original may be reflected in approximately five chapters of the abridgment.
The purpose of the Gothic History, to connect the Gothic nation with the Roman where possible, and to elevate it to equal rank where not, is apparent throughout these remarks.

Our only source for early Gothic history is Jordanes' Getica, (published 551 CE), a condensation of the lost twelve-volume history of the Goths written in Italy by Cassiodorus.
Jordanes may not even have had the work at hand to consult from, and this early information should be treated with the highest degree of caution.
The 6th century Getica, written by Jordanes on the basis of the now lost history of the Goths by Cassiodorus, envokes several origin options, including the Getae, the biblical Magog and the island of Scanza.

 J.J. O'Donnell, "The Aims of Jordanes"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
[[15]] Jordanes' preface to the Getica reminded us that the beginning and end of the work were the places which would show his touch the most clearly; this is particularly true of the end.
It is particularly worthy of note that the Getica treats the defeat and capture of Witigis in 540 by Belisarius as the end of the war -- later events under other Gothic kings and other generals go completely unmentioned, even though they are treated in the Romana.
[[22]] Less frequently noticed are the definite traces in the Getica of a reliance on oral sources (which Cassiodorus had also told us about already, even while minimizing their importance).

This was based on "Getica" by Jordanes from 551 AD as the only source.
First of all he did not write that the Danes were Swedes, but that they both belonged to a people called the Vinoviloths.
Secondly the idea that the Heruls origined from Scandinavia was based on five unclear words in his introduction of Getica.

 O. Maenchen-Helfen - The Language of the Huns - 10
Jordanes speaks of the sites of the Acatziri and their way of life in the much-discussed chapter V of the Getica.
Vasmer took angi- to mean the same as OE eng, "grassland"; [532] the Angisciri would, thus, be the "grassland Sciri." As, however, the other three tribes, Ultzinzures, Bittugures, and Bardores, have Turkish names, it seems more likely that Angisciri is also Turkish.
The scribes may have assimilated an unfamiliar name to that of the Sciri, who in the Romana are named twice and in the Getica five times.

 Northvegr - A History of the Vikings
For Jordanes is the next author to speak of the Scandinavians, and his Getica, or History of the Goths, was written in the middle of the sixth century.
As a complement to this it is simple to accept the Goutai as the people of the island Gotland.
Cassiodorus himself derived much of his information from a still earlier work by an unknown writer Ablabius, but in the passage describing Scandinavia he doubtless repeats much that was told him by the various northerners who had travelled to Italy and whom he had met.

I do not quite agree with the part where he uses Jordanes Getica as source since it is pure spin-up.
In Jordanes Getica there is a lot of free imagination mixed with some truth so it looks as plausible history.
Cassiodorus wrote for Theoderic before 527 and Getica is written just before the defeat in 550 when the Goths still seemed strong and the Senate was supposed to support them.

 Jordanes --  Britannica Concise Encyclopedia - The online encyclopedia you can trust!
His first major work, De origine actibusque Getarum (“On the Origin and Deeds of the Getae”), now commonly referred to as the Getica, was completed in 551.
Jordanes' other extant work is the chronicle De summa temporum vel origine actibusque gentis Romanorum (“The High Point of Time, or the Origin and Deeds of the Roman People”), also completed in 551 and called the Romana.
The Getica is by far the more valuable work, because it is the major contemporary source on both the Goths and Huns.

 Jordanes - Latin & English - First half
The Getica was written after beginning and before finishing a similar work on Roman history, the Romana, dedicated to a certain "most noble brother Vigilius" (probably not the pope of that name).
This excellent volume is based on work by many scholars using both archeology and satellite-generated aeronautical charts to depict the ancient landscape as it was in the days of the Roman Empire, and is an immense help in understanding the topography of Europe traversed by the Goths.
Now Dio, the historian and diligent investigator of ancient times, who gave to his work the title "Getica" (and the Getae we have proved in a previous passage to be Goths, on the testimony of Orosius Paulus) - this Dio, I say, makes mention of a later king of theirs named Telephus.
