The Curia, first Roman senate house was built by Tullus Hostilius at the northwest corner of the Forum square. The Curia which stands today was begun by Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. He aligned this new Curia with its surrounding structures. The interior has three steps for the senator’s seats on either side of the vast hall. A speaker’s podium was located at the end opposite of the door. The Curia Julia was dedicated by Augustus in 29 B.C.

My sister: Wait, he wrote a biography after he died? That’s pretentious.

Rome + religion

It doesn’t turn away from the unpretty stuff, it doesn’t turn away from the difficult stuff. It shows how violent, profane, sexual and immoral life was sometimes while not neglecting the level of great achievement in civilisation. – Alan Poul, Director

Unless you deal with that set of pagan values, their behaviour is often inexplicable. Cruelty was a form of virtue and pity was a form of weakness. So it makes you think again about your notions of right and wrong. – Bruno Heller, Executive Producer
