The people of ancient Rome established one of the most successful societies of all time. In many ways, their society was very much like our own, with many of the same strengths and many of the same problems. This course will include a survey of Roman history from the time of the Roman monarchy through the reign of Constantine. It will include also a discussion of many of the greatest works of Latin literature, including the histories of Tacitus, Suetonius, and Sallust, the plays of Plautus, and thepoems of Catullus, Ovid, Virgil, and Horace.
