CLAS 2226 The Age of Augustus (Fall: 3 )
Augustus, the first emperor of Rome, restored stability to the Roman world after its civil wars, established a new political order which became the Roman Empire, rebuilt the city of Rome to match its role as the capital of a world empire, and oversaw remarkable creativity in the visual and literary arts, including the works of Horace, Vergil, Livy, Propertius, and Ovid. This course will examine the political events and cultural life of this vital time with particular attention to Augustus' own central role in the creation of what we call the Age of Augustus.
