Making sense of the rise and fall of the Roman Republic: today’s history class

Continuing our ancient history class, today we reviewed the origins of the Roman republic and its descent into chaos, starting with how the Gracchi brothers broke core rules in the name of social justice.

Our question was if the violation of standards was justified?

Then we discussed how reactionary forces that followed, such as those of Marius and Sulla, led, eventually, to the rule of Julius Caesar and the collapse of the Republic marked, finally, by the rise of Octavian, or Caesar Augustus.

Students learned to interpret primary and historical secondary sources in order to balance their views of contemporaneous points of view and their historical value.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality, practical history classes, tutoring and academic support.
