Book Description
Marcus Aurelius - the last of Rome`s five good emperors` is the one great figure of antiquity who still speaks to us today, more than 2,000 years after his death. We may thrill to the exploits of Alexander the Great, Hannibal or Julius Caesar but the only voice from the Graeco-Roman world that still seems to have contemporary relevance is that of the man who ruled the Roman Empire from 161 to 180 A.D. Singled out by Hadrian as a future emperor, Marcus was educated by some of the greatest scholars of his day. His correspondence with his Latin teacher Fronto provides masny insights into his emerging character and his growing interest in philosophy. When he assumed the throne he issued numerous reforms favouring the less priviledged, while the status of Christians remained unchanged: they were legally punishable and were subject to persecution.
