In this course we will analyze the Roman Empire from the assassination of Julius Caesar in March of 44 BCE to the reign of the last western emperor, Romulus Augustus, in 476 CE. We will focus on political, military, constitutional, social and religious developments, with special attention given to specific subject populations such as the Jews and Christians. Students will analyze the ancient sources-literary texts, inscriptions, coinage-to assess their limitations and strengths.
