Course description

This course covers the history of the Roman world from the death of Augustus to the rise of Constantine and Christian Rome in the early fourth century A.D. It examines the public and private lives of the Roman emperors (including Nero, Hadrian and Marcus Aurelius), and the impact of their administrative,religious, and military policies on Roman society at large. Students will study the great historical works of imperial Rome, including Tacitus¿ Annals, Suetonius¿ Lives of the Caesars, and Cassius Dio¿s Roman History, in English translation. Special emphasis will be placed on examining these literary texts in conjunction with documentary sources, particularly inscriptions and coins, using the resources of the R. D. Milns Antiquities Museum. This course may not run if there are fewer than 20 enrolments.
