Livy's History of Rome/Heroes & Villains

Uploaded by :

A 3 page essay that examines the work of ancient Roman author Titus Livius, known in English as "Livy," who wrote a history of Rome during the era of Augustus that traced what was believed about the city's founding to his own era. While there is much that is debatable about the accuracy of Livy's account, it does convey a great deal about this ancient historian's ethics and worldview, offering insight to modern readers as to how Romans viewed the individuals designated as "heroes," and also the Roman view of "villains," in their cultural legacy.
