Rome in Antiquity

  • Heatherwood Community 9642 Burke Lake Road Burke, VA, 22015 United States (map)

From a small settlement on the Italian peninsula in 735 BC, to an empire that ruled a majority of the known world, the 700 year history of ancient Rome is the story of Western Civilization.  Through Rome the achievements of ancient Greek civilization passed to Medieval Europe – with its own unique contributions added.  Rome was an idea; a grand experiment in global politics of its day and a beacon of light in a barbaric time.  Join Dr. Roger Koment in this six lecture course as he examines the history, politics, intrigues, accomplishments, and legacy of the most powerful kingdom the world has ever known.
