Julius Caesar was perhaps the most fascinating and controversial personality of western antiquity. Pacifier of Gaul, military genius, and political revolutionary, Caesar, with undeniable aspirations of dictatorship, presided over the last years of the Republic in an attempt to address the long-standing civil turmoil that had plagued Rome for half a century. His reforms were largely realized by his successor and heir, Octavian, the future Augustus. We invite you to hear Caesar hold forth on his military and political career, particularly his justification for embarking on a decisive path of one-man rule, a course of action that defied all sacred Roman traditions and prompted his murder by senatorial conspirators.
William Cumiford, Ph. D., Associate Professor of History will be portraying Caesar. Don’t Miss Out!
