CLAS 104 - History of Rome

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
Gladiators! Decadence! Empire! This course will survey the history of Rome, from its prehistoric origins to the collapse of the Western Empire in the fifth century CE. We will pay close attention to networks of social power, the impact of imperialism, and the unity and diversity of what it meant to be ‘Roman.’ The course will engage with military history, slavery, the rise of Christianity, indigenous or ‘pagan’ religious practices, and resistance. Readings from the ancient sources will provide the basis for discussions.

This course is appropriate for new students.
This course is cross-listed with HIST-129
