What scared the Romans?
I can’t help to think that a great podcast would be “Boo! What Scared the Romans.”
After all, they lived in one scary time. Cities were destroyed, wholesale slavery, death in the arena, mixed in with a belief system of mythological creatures and gods and punishment which one example is merited out by an eagle eating the liver of Prometheus for giving fire to man.
“Oh, come one! The gods are mad at us for having fire? Great, isn’t life hard enough?” My urban Roman says from under his blanket.
I have a hard time wondering what was scarier than a good barbarian invasion.
What went bump in the night for the Romans?
