The Age of Augustus
CCIV 227
Spring 2007
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: HIST 233

This course introduces students to a remarkable period in Western history, the rule of Rome's first emperor, Augustus. We will begin by examining the political and military clashes of the late Republic that ultimately led to Augustus' acquisition of power, and then move to explore the ways in which Augustus attempted to orchestrate political, social, and religious change - and the ways in which people responded to his efforts. A wide range of evidence will be treated, including art, architecture, political speeches, letters, biography, historiography, poetry, religious ceremonies, and law.
