Course Description: Augustus was the first princeps of Rome. He is not only remembered as the founder of a new, relatively stable form of government over centuries, but he also gave his name to an entire epoch. Based on the study of the person of Augustus, the class discusses the foundation and establishment of the principate and its specific characteristics. Topics include the legitimacy of the princeps, imperialism and peace, the Varus battle, the marriage laws, and the succession. By addressing these issues, the course provides insight into the Augustinian era and also a foundation for understanding the Roman Empire. Moreover, this period of Roman history lends itself to learning how to deal with various sources (especially historiography, poetry, coins, archaeological testimonies and inscriptions) of particular importance to ancient history.
