Leave at least TWO substantial comments on The Rape of Lucretia
Like in the previous module, here we have another ancient historian writing about the past. The earliest version of this foundational story of the Roman Republic (that we know about) circulated around the late 3rd century BCE, so at least 200 years after the events allegedly took place. The version we are reading is by Livy and is included in his 142 volume History of Rome. Livy was writing in the tumultuous period that marked the end of the Republic and the beginning of the empirical rule. In your entry, address similar questions: what does this text tell us about the values of the Roman Republic? What are the source’s limitations?
