Rome! Perhaps more than any culture, we are fascinated by the legend and lore of this breathtaking ancient empire. Much of how we live and what we think in our Western world was birthed in the fabled cities and byways of this sprawling empire.

Legendary warrior and philosopher Marcus Aurelius is perhaps more famous today for the fictionalized portrayal of him in the movie Gladiator than his feats on the battlefield or still published works of philosophy. Marcus Aurelius was a successful emperor both on the battlefield and at home, strengthening and expanding the empire with a firm hand and keen insight. He is lauded as one of the Roman Empire's most successful leaders.
