Old Western Culture: The Romans is a full year of instruction divided into four quarters: The Aeneid, The Historians, Early Christianity, and Nicene Christianity. In this “flipped-classroom” approach, students learn from the award-winning Old Western Culture video-centric curriculum, and then meet for live discussion each week with an instructor. As an integrated humanities curriculum, The Romans explores history, theology, philosophy, poetry, and art through the greatest works of influential literature of the Western world, and from a Christian perspective.Get Started
