A Historian Goes to the Movies: Ancient Rome

by Professor Gregory S. Aldrete (The Great Courses, 2021)

Aldrete_Historian Goes to the Movies

This audiobook comprises twelve lectures examining Ancient Rome’s representation in film. Aldrete proves knowledgeable and passionate about the material, though uncritical of the primary sources against which the modern interpretations are judged. We learn more about film-making and contemporary zeitgeists than Rome.
