CL 421 - Caesar and Augustus

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: One HS100-level course. They transformed a great republic into a monarchy; killed (literally) millions of people; conquered a huge chunk of the Mediterranean World and Europe; carried out one of the greatest urban renewal projects in history; revived and transformed religion; revised the calendar; inspired Shakespeare, Shaw, and dozens of movies. And yet, the one wound up assassinated by his peers, and the other had so little control over his own family that he felt compelled to exile his jet-set daughter to the Roman equivalent of Siberia. Who were they? And how did the epochal events of their lifetime give birth to such genius monsters? Same course as HS 421 . II
