The Fall of Rome and Modern Parallels

Appearance
Thursday, August 8, 2019 11:30 AM
Acton Institute, 98 Fulton St E, Grand Rapids, MI 49503

The greatest civilization of ancient times expired more than 1,500 years ago but the lessons to be learned from its experience are eternal. In this lecture, Lawrence W. Reed will focus on the Roman Republic—the key features, personalities and events that defined its rise as well as those that caused its decay in the First Century B.C. into an imperial autocracy. Many of the trends of our day echo those of the ancient Republic, which make its lessons all the more relevant, even pressing, for us now.

This lecture will be livestreamed @ 12 noon on August 8 for those who cannot join in person.

Sponsored by Acton Institute.
