CLA 327/HIS 327

Info tab content
The Augustan age is generally considered to be a golden age of Roman art, literature, and culture. This course will examine the time-period between the assassination of Julius Caesar (44 BC) and the death of his heir Augustus (AD 14) from a variety of perspectives, with special focus on politics, religion, and culture. The political and religious climate of this age will serve as background both to the transition to a system of one-man rule and to the many cultural developments in literature and the arts, especially in the city of Rome itself.
