The Romans were history’s great men of action, making the story of their lives an interesting and exciting reading. Famous Men of Rome offers thirty stories, covering the history of Rome from its founding under Romulus to the last emperor in the West. Your children will see the rise and fall of history’s greatest civilization through the lives of Horatius, Camillus, Caesar, Cicero, Marcus Aurelius, and many other larger-than-life figures. While the Roman culture was primarily pagan, an understanding of modern political history is impossible without a thorough understanding of Rome. Thus, its study provides a foundation for all other history study.
Famous Men of Rome has been completely revised with full color illustrations, since Memoria Press commissioned 30 oil paintings of the significant events in the Famous Men of Rome and included them in this beautiful printing.
