Episode 4 coming soon.

Episode 4 is titled:


“Save Me a Seat at the Triumph, and Let’s Throw a Cabbage at the Gaul.”  


This relief is on the Arch of Titus: obviously spoils from the sack of Jerusalem.

 In this episode we will explore the Roman Triumph.  The podcast starts with a reading of Steven Saylor’s book The Triumph of Caesar, then looks into the modern equivalents of this ancient ritual.    Mr. Saylor  interviewed on the show talks about the religious implications of the triumph, the Romans, and various books and histories that influenced  his writing and career.
