HIST 4345 Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar

March 28, 2017

HIST 4345/6345 Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar (HA-AS) (also CLASS 4679/7679)

Monday: 1:25-4:25

Professor Barry Strauss

Alexander and Caesar are still today two of history’s greatest conquerors and statesmen. They were each geniuses and visionaries but were also each responsible for death and destruction on a massive scale. Ancient writers often compared the two and so shall we in a course that aims to separate the facts from the legend and to consider each person’s legacy for today. Course readings are in classical texts and modern scholarship. Prerequisite: introductory course in ancient history or permission of the instructor. (pre-1800/non-US)
