Summary
Thirty-six lectures on the visual nature of ancient Rome and how it was able to so successfully communicate its civic and cultural values, or project a knowledge of Roman power, to every corner of the realm. Learn how Rome communicated in visually symbolic ways, gain insight into how similar tools are used today, and hone your ability to see them at work in the visual symbols that are part of government, the military, religion, and just about every aspect of contemporary public or private life
