In Episode One of Ancient Rome Refocused I promised to conduct interviews with people who are keeping history alive. Well, I have kept my promise.
EPISODE FOUR OF ANCIENT ROME REFOCUSED: I just conducted an interview with Mr. Steven Saylor the author of the Roma Sub Rosa Historical mystery series starring Gordianus the finder. Mr. Saylor talks about his latest book, The Triumph of Ceasar and provides the listeners with a stirring discussion on how he sees the ancient people of Rome, their religious views of the world and how it fits into the practice of the Triumph, and writers that influenced his career.
EPISODE FIVE OF ANCIENT ROME REFOCUSED: If we talk about the Romans we have to talk about Greeks. I was fortunate to be in the audience for a reading of the play AJAX written by the ancient Greek general and playwrite Sophocles. It was performed by the New York based THEATER OF WAR headed by Mr. Bryan Doerries, translator and director. This play is on tour performing for veterans who are learning that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has been around for thousands of years and plagued the ancient heroes of mythology.
