Grandeur was Rome's goal, grandeur her one achievement, and perhaps also the secret of the shallowness of her art. Asserting in Plato's Apology that “the unexamined life is not worth living,” he pressed for definitions of the virtues or excellences which were widely recognized and claimed by his fellows, but which they found difficult to explain. Along with his mentor, Socrates, and his student, Aristotle, Plato helped to lay the foundations of Western philosophy and science.

Iter, meaning a journey or a path in Latin, was created for the advancement of learning in the study and teaching of the Middle Ages and Renaissance (400-1700) through the development of online resources. Naturally, these forms were modified to suit Roman tastes, and were injected with native Roman cultural elements; most obviously, the chief language of Roman literature was Latin rather than Greek. Scáthach, the woman warrior and teacher of Cu Chulainn, was also to have this gift.

School is something that is a system in our everyday lives: everyone must do it or else have a difficult time providing for them and family. C., when the Romans were forced to come to terms with the commitments they took on by defeating the Carthaginians in Spain. x This lecture discusses the development of Roman Spain, moving us into the area of social and economic changes brought on by the Roman conquest. x This lecture discusses the relationship between Rome and the barbarians of Roman North Africa, especially the Numidians and their king, Jugurtha—with whom Rome blundered into an ugly frontier war. x Gaius Marius, the victor over Jugurtha, fights a series of battles against the dreaded Germanic-speaking northern barbarians that shape not only the direction of Roman foreign policy but, ultimately, Roman attitudes toward those barbarians. x Professor Harl shifts the focus away from the western Mediterranean to the peoples who lay to the east, at the frontier Rome inherited by taking over the hegemony of the Hellenistic world. x This lecture examines the impact on Rome's institutions of her wars, conquests, and territorial acquisitions. x The entire axis and dimension of the Roman world is transformed during this key period in the career of perhaps the most memorable of all Romans. x In this first of a series of lectures introducing new barbarians, Professor Harl discusses the Germanic tribes who came to epitomize the most ferocious barbarians the Romans had encountered. x This lecture introduces still more barbarians to the mix: the various Iranian-speaking nomads of eastern Europe. x This lecture examines how the Parthians came to become the dominant barbarian power in the Near East and the great rival of Imperial Rome for almost 300 years. x The focus returns to Rome proper: what the Roman Empire was all about, how it evolved from the institutions of the Republic, and how changing political arrangements altered those institutions and, ultimately, Rome's relationship with the barbarians. x As Rome moves from Republic to Empire, the Roman Imperial Army becomes a very different institution. x In beginning a set of five lectures that discuss the different relationships between Rome and its various foes on the imperial frontiers, Professor Harl examines one of the most dramatic events in Roman imperial history. x This lecture reveals some of the differences in how the Romans reacted to a Celtic-based civilization, as opposed to the German tribes in the imperial age. x The record left by Tacitus reveals how the Roman Empire was ripped apart by civil wars and rebellions between A.

It is native to southeastern Europe, Asia Minor, and some central European spa regions, apparently brought there by Romans for their healing properties. In 1501 another great Venetian printer, Aldus Manutius, needs a contrasting and smaller type for a 'pocket edition' of Virgil. It is certainly possible that one scribe could have completed the whole process by himself, and evidence exists that some did (Cherubs and Camel in the Book of Hours, shown at left, illustrates the assembly-line technique).
