Ancient Rome is said to have been a “mythless” society, but the dynamic stories of Aeneas, Romulus and Remus, Hercules, and Lucretia suggest otherwise. This course explores the meaning and making of myth in Rome relative to two facets of Roman culture: religion and history. What significance did Roman rituals attach to myth? How were myths used in accounts of the invention and reinvention of Rome as a state, a republic, and an imperial power ruled by one man?
