Historical Setting: Ancient Rome

Olivia Coolidge provides a panoramic view of Roman history through biographies of twelve of the most powerful, brilliant, influential and well-placed men in the 450 years of the Roman Empire: Cicero, Julius Caesar, Augustus Caesar, Virgil, Horace, Nero, Seneca, Trajan, Hadrian, Marcus Aurelius, Diocletian and Constantine.

The methodology is similar to that of Plutarch's Lives, but spans a longer time period and is more concerned with the impact they had on the rise, decline and fall of the Roman Empire.
