      Chats in the Stacks: Barry Strauss on Ten Caesars: Roman Emperors from Augustus to Constantine

      What can leaders from the Roman Empire teach us? And in what ways is the Roman Empire still alive and well today? In a Chats in the Stacks talk, Barry Strauss will discuss his new book Ten Caesars: Roman Emperors from Augustus to Constantine (Simon & Schuster, 2019). The Bryce and Edith M. Bowmar Professor in Humanistic Studies in the Departments of History and Classics, Strauss also profiles influential women—including Augustus’s wife Livia and Constantine’s mother Helena—while tracking dramatic shifts in geographical boundary, religion, ethnicity, and culture of the Roman Empire during its 350-year lifespan.

      This book talk is sponsored by Olin Library. Light refreshments will be served.
