Readings in Latin Literature I:
the Historia Augusta

This seminar will focus on different aspects of the curious view of Roman imperial history from Hadrian to Carinus presented by the Historia Augusta. Widely known as one of the classical tradition's wiggliest cans of worms, the Historia Augusta offers problems to fascinate students of Roman history and culture, Latin literature, imperial ideology, intellectual history, and literary representation; and for the curiosity-seeker, astonishing factoids. Come explore. Roman emperors and Roman biography will never look the same again!
