This course considers the Roman Empire at its height, tracing the political, social, and religious changes that shaped Rome from the death of Julius Caesar through the Fifth Century CE.  We will seek to understand the longevity of this extraordinary empire as well as the roots of its eventual decline.  Using literary, historiographical, and archaeological sources, we will see how Rome's once unitary society was challenged and transformed by the diverse cultures and religions of its empire.
