A series of workshops for sixteen high school Latin teachers on the history and culture of Augustan Rome.

Classical Scholarship and the Age of Augustus is a Faculty Humanities Workshop for sixteen Latin teachers from Maryland and neighboring states within commuting distance of College of Notre Dame of Maryland. The program is sponsored by College of Notre Dame of Maryland, a liberal arts college for women with a strong tradition of humanities education and scholarship, and will be directed by Sister Therese Marie Dougherty, a classics scholar and recognized leader in the promotion of classics among high school and college students. Participants will explore several aspects of ancient Rome in the Age of Augustus (27 B.C.E. to 14 C.E). Topics include history, literature, monuments, and religious beliefs, as the teachers study the events leading to the rise of Augustus, the verbal and visual iconography of Augustus and his achievements, and the beginnings of emperor worship.
