Due to the inclement weather and illness, two of the lectures on Antoninus Pius had to be rescheduled. Please, note the new dates of the lectures. If you were booked on the original lectures, you have been transferred to the new dates (if you cannot make the dates, you are entitled to a refund).
The over twenty years of Antoninus Pius suffers from a singular lack of ‘normal’ historical sources, which makes writing a normal biography difficult. This course is reviewing the evidence for his reign and how we know about it. We will also be focusing on why it has the reputation of being the heighday of the Roman Empire
1 March 19 April – Bringing up the princes – the role of Fronto and Herodes Atticus 15 March 27 September – Antonine palaces – Villa Magna and the myth of the frugal emperor
The lectures can be attended individually or as a complete course.
Day: Thursdays Time: 2pm– 4pm
2 lectures, 19th April and 27th September 2018.
