3 Credit(s) | Lecture |
Course can be counted for credit once

Julius Caesar has been called “the best-known ancient Roman.” Not only was he Rome’s greatest general, he has been considered among the finest Latin writers and surpassed by very few Roman orators. Yet he was a man of contradictions who aroused violently different reactions. This course will explore the biography and works of Julius Caesar from several different vantage points and through many different kinds of sources; his own written works; the archaeological evidence of his buildings, coinage, and statues; the writings of his contemporaries and successors; the views of modern scholarship; and the poets and playwrights who have given us their own versions of Caesar.
