Lesson 55 – Week 11 Review

Writing assignment:

Answer two of the following four questions:

(1) According to Seneca, what is man’s unique good? How should a good man conduct himself?

(2) How would you summarize the period of the Julio-Claudian and Flavian emperors? Were they consistently humane and competent, wicked and foolish, or is the pattern erratic? Was there a consistent system of succession from one emperor to another?

(3) Why do historians tend to look with favor on the period of the five good emperors? What differences do you observe between that period and the period from the death of Augustus through the death of Domitian?

(4) Read further about one of the works of art discussed in Lesson 54, and in about 125 words discuss the additional details you find out.
