The objective of this research is threefold: 1) the translation with notes, from Latin to Portuguese, of Publius Cornelius Tacitus' Germania; 2) the study on its genre, with an eye to the modern critics of the work of Tacitus; and 3) the investigation of the descriptive procedures used by the author in order to construct an image of the Germanic people, taking as the starting point for this analysis ancient treatises on rhetoric.
