Professor Barry Strauss on Ten Caesars: Roman Emperors from Augustus to Constantine
Professor Barry Strauss will discuss his bestselling new book Ten Caesars: Roman Emperors from Augustus to Constantine. Strauss tells the story of three and a half centuries of the Roman Empire through the lives of ten of the most important emperors, from Augustus to Constantine. They made the Roman Empire the ruthless, violent, yet surprisingly open society that continues to fascinate us today.
