Welcome back! We continue our study of the months of the Roman year with March, the month that originally began the old Roman calendar. We'll learn what Roman legends and history the days of March observed: the shield of Mars, the leaping priests, the sacred fire of Vesta, what it meant to be a pontifex maximus, horse races in honor of Mars, and the purification of musical horns. Especially we’ll learn about the murder of Julius Caesar on the Ides of March. We'll also read short passages...
Students will learn the Roman origins of the month of March, Roman legends, and about the murder of Julius Caesar. We’ll also review how the Romans reckoned the days of the month.
I hold an MA in Classics - the study of Latin and Greek, and the ancient worlds of Greece and Rome. For years I taught high school students these subjects. On Outschool I have taught an introductory course on the Roman Calendar, and continue month by month to teach in more detail through the year.
Just come to class and prepare to learn!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal discussion. Student questions and comments are most welcome!
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The murder of Julius Caesar will be approached through historical context and literary passages from Suetonius and Shakespeare. No actual violence of the murder will be presented in class.
The teacher will provide online handouts and pictures.
