    1. Jim says:

      This is a survey course audio download about the ancient history of Rome and not intended as an in depth study of all of ancient Rome s very complicated history Dr Fagan presents a no nonsense series of lectures that provides the basis for understanding the social, political and military evolution of possibly the most important and successful civilization of the western world From monarchy to republic to empire the Roman models have been by the bad guys efforts to achieve the glory R [...]

    2. Choko says:

      I love Prof Fagan, sexy accent and all He makes all history fun

    3. Amy says:

      Excellent lecture series Not a boring moment in the series Highly recommend it if you re interested in Roman History.It s not as good as reading the ancient texts but it s much better informative than any current book on Roman History.

    4. Daniel says:

      A very good and thorough but admittedly shallow look at the history of the Roman Empire from its inception to the fall of the Western Empire It was informative and very well presented and had some asides into culture and entertainment as well as military organization It s 38 30 minutes lectures long but well worth the time involved.

    5. Jeffry says:

      Can t recommend Fagan, or the Great Courses Lectures, enough My brother Chris turned me on to the Great Courses I ve been enormously grateful for the many hours I ve spent listening since.

    6. Michael Nash says:

      Great Overview Bogged down a bit in the middle Spends several lectures on Ceasar and Augustus and the leadup to the end of the Republic and rise of the Empire, then kind of yadda yaddas the next 400 years Still, great detail on the early parts of the empire.

    7. Jerome says:

      Solid overview of the history of Rome.

    8. Estuardo Choc Salazar says:

      48 hours of lectures, I think it s fair enough to say that anyone can learn a lot from this It also includes a couple of lectures about the fall and decline of the empire but obviously this is just a plus.

    9. Tristan Brandmeyer says:

      I thought this was an excellent lecture series on the history of Rome Anyone interested in broadening their understanding of Roman history, and history in general, should give this a read or listen on audio.

    10. Nilesh says:

      The lecture series is important, academically sound and full of rich details but lacks the story telling flavour to provide a proper context.The series does well to span the rise of Rome from complete obscurity in particular The strength is particularly in the description of the republic, how it came together and eventually yielded to the formation of the Empire Somewhat astonishingly, the lectures have too little time for the eras of the powerful emperors and even less for the fall of this civi [...]

    11. Melinda says:

      Dr Fagan is proving to be an exceptionally interesting and engaging teacher Am enjoying these CD s a great deal Highly recommended so farVERY very highly recommended The description I remember best is of how we should look at the development of the Roman republic into the Roman empire It is like walking into the kitchen of a highly eccentric old man There are old and new appliances in the same kitchen Each of the old ones are kept because the old man values just how well they do the one thing he [...]

    12. Daniel Aguilar says:

      Extensive and detailed account of ancient Rome, from its foundation through the Republic and Imperial age and down to the fall of the western half in the IV and V centuries It s focused mainly on the political and military achievements and their main characters, although some of the latest lectures put emphasis on cultural and sociological aspects such as leisure, slavery, religion and I very much enjoyed that the author often explains which are the sources of evidence, describing the difficul [...]

    13. Luke says:

      Content An extremely good source for introductory information about the history of Ancient Rome Prof Fagan gives a fascinating and entertaining narrative of Rome s long and complex story by going through its three main stages Kingdom, Republic, and Empire Along side this narrative, short stories are constantly delivered about various assemblies, writers, emperors, consuls, concepts, laws which greatly help the reader listener better understand the reason behind its most important events The cour [...]

    14. Brian says:

      A very interesting series that really explained the complexity of Roman rise and its culture its warring attitude and ultimately its size or other forces caused it to ultimately decline and fall The lecturer acknowledged difficulty in early history with documentation Most of the series was spent on Caesar and Pompeii and then Caesar s son Augustus so the documentation must have improved The weakest part of the series was the broad discussion of the culture, religion, politics, and general impact [...]

    15. Steve Horton says:

      After spending 48 lectures at 30 minutes per with the voice of Dr Fagan echoing in my Camry, I would summarize this course as nothing less than masterful I purchased this set so I would have a background to grasp the Gibbon masterwork, but I did not anticipate Dr Fagan giving me a three century head start The course has the feel of a graduate level class, which is the proper canvas for Dr Fagan s expansive knowledge of Roman actions, motivations, and intrigue Pivotal events in Roman history are [...]

    16. Andi says:

      Dr Fagan does a great job with the lectures and emphasizing the points he thinks are most important while pointing out the pitfalls in trying to analyze something with such little at the disposal to historians I am not a historian, and have gotten interested in learning about Rome because of some fantasy book series I ve read I think the layout and explanation of the different types and ways to analyze the historical data was refreshing, rather than the normal this is how it is mentality.As wit [...]

    17. Jon says:

      Really this is a fantastic course I just couldn t bring myself to give it five stars because the hover text for five stars says it as amazing I can t really say that, but it was great, and I really enjoyed it.I have been listening to the Great Courses for years, and they re very reliably worth the time and money This one is no exception is that regard Though some might be frustrated that details on the lives of many of the emperors were not explored to greater detail, I think I ended up liking [...]

    18. Bruce says:

      This is a 48 lecture historical overview of Rome from legendary events in the 8th century BC through the late 5th century AD Fagan is very well organized and clear in his presentation I used the DVD version rather than the audio CDs and was pleased with the maps, artifacts, and photos which were used they much enhanced the lectures The bibliography is outstanding and contains helpful comments about the suggested resources.

    19. Xiao says:

      Worth multiple listens There s so much info packed in there that there s something new to learn on each re listen Also provides tons of context on how society can be organized and political structures that are presented as dichotomies today democratic vs non democratic but show an entirely different side of itself when pushed outside the spectrum of today s conventions.

    20. Ross Rawnsley says:

      Another great lecture series from the Teaching Company Prof Fagan is clear and concise, with a dash of humor thrown in I would definitely listen to another of his lectures.I highly recommend the Great Courses, especially for those of you that are history fanatics4.5 stars

    21. Phillip says:

      A most pleasant survey of the history of ancient Rome This is not a description of the deeds of the Emperors Instead it provides the origin and fall of the Republic and the development of the empire This is followed by thematic lectures about life in Rome I recommend this.

    22. Judith says:

      Very clear and interesting overview of Roman history I read this to give me background to read Decline and Fall of Roman Empire The lecturer was perhaps not well while giving the lectures his energy levels seem to go up and down.

    23. Kent Woods says:

      Excellent overview broad but shallow, as these things have to be For my money, I d rather just have listened to Great Courses Famous Romans again It covers much of the same material, with of a story time feel.

    24. Ryan says:

      Quality survey as reasonably comprehensive and thorough as you could be covering about 1000 years of history in 24 hours Mostly focuses on the later Republic and high Empire 200 BC AD 200.

    25. Justin says:

      I enjoyed the lectures covering the founding of Rome to the death of Augustus I felt Dr Fagan rushed the Imperial period.

    26. Mats Hellstrom says:

      Interesting and well presented, I think it got a bit slow in the middle when the political system was discussed in detail It was only for a few lectures however Can recommend this series.

    27. Zach says:

      Good primer from my old Latin teacher.

    28. Johannes Bertus says:

      Insightful and entertaining I loved the Prof s voice.

    29. Amy Gideon says:

      I really enjoyed this survey into Ancient Roman History A really great lecturer I do wish though that the Julio Claudian period was discussed .

    30. Vlad says:

      Great history course of Rome Audio version is about 45 hours
