Section Information for Spring 2020

In the year 500 BCE, Rome was a small, unremarkable village on the outskirts of the civilized world. Five hundred years later, Romans ruled the largest and most powerful empire the world had ever known. By 500 CE, however, Rome itself lay in ruins, and the empire had been reduced to a shadow of its former self. In this class, we will study the thousand years of Roman history 500 BCE – 500 CE, with particular attention to the questions of how the Romans rose to power, why Rome fell, and what we can learn from both the Romans’ triumphs and their mistakes.
