LAT 30.07 Roman Perspectives on Friendship

Studies the ideology and practice of friendship at Rome through personal letters, short poems, and philosophical discussions. In particular, we consider how the relationship called amicitia fit into the social hierarchy, whether that relationship entailed personal affection, and how Romans dealt with the ethical problems that sometimes arise in the context of friendship. Readings in Latin include personal and political letters of Cicero, short poems of Catullus to both friends and enemies, and Cicero’s essay De amicitia.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
