Rome in Antiquity

  • Paul Spring Community (map)

From a small settlement on the Italian peninsula in 735 BC to an empire that ruled the majority of the known world, the 700-year history of ancient Rome is the story of Western Civilization.  Through this achievement, ancient Greek civilization, now with Latin influences, passed to Medieval Europe.  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 this spring semester for the first three of a six-lecture series in which he examines the history, politics, intrigues, and legacy of the most powerful kingdom the world has ever known.
