Eternal Rome

Jan Term 2019

In Rome, ancient edifices lie around every corner, so as you wander the medieval streets past Renaissance palaces on your way to savor the joy of gelato, you’ll wonder at the ubiquitous fragments of our classical inheritance.  Rome will deliver unexpected surprises to those who heed Horace’s call of CARPE DIEM.
Classics 304: "Eternal Rome" leads students out of the classroom and into world famous archeological sites (think Colosseum) and world class museums (think the Vatican Museums and its Sistine Chapel) in order to examine the history and culture of Rome from its Greek and Etruscan antecedents through the Roman Republic doomed by Julius Caesar on to the Roman Empire established by Caesar Augustus, all the way to the Renaissance transformation of the Classical ideal.
