FYW-1255 Nature of Roman Myth


It is often said that the Romans had no myth, only saga. This course will explore that idea by interrogating various definitions of myth, examining the differences among types of traditional tales, and exploring their connection
to native Italian religions, inherited Greek traditions, and Roman cultural identity. Primary texts to be read in English include Ovid, Vergil, and Livy. 4 credits.
