Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide an overview of Roman history for the period between the origins of the city of Rome and the fall of the Western Roman Empire. Lectures focus on crucial historical issues that can be useful for understanding present events rather than on the mere description of facts and events. The main objective is to provide students with the necessary tools for the critical analysis of ancient primary evidence (literary, archaeological, epigraphical, numismatic, papyrological sources) and modern secondary literature, and for the understanding of the methodology of historical research and the vocabulary of the discipline.

Program

Crucial moments of Roman history are illustrated diachronically during the course, with a focus on both the origins of the city and the Republican age (first 10 lectures) and the Imperial and Late Antique periods (last 8 lectures). Through the reading and commentary of ancient sources, macro-themes such as social and economic issues, military structures, institutional arrangements, political debate and religious aspects are also analysed.

The complete syllabus is provided to students during the first lesson, and published on the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it.
