Caesar: The Man From Venus
Sat. April 22, 11am

Meet Caesar, who is descended from the Goddess Venus. This program introduces Caesar as a young boy living with his mother, Aurelia, and his Aunt Julia, two women who will shape the boy who will be the most powerful man on earth. Using a rich variety of texts, Sebastian Lockwood shows Caesar as a man who clearly saw his destiny and fulfilled that destiny with the help of remarkable women – Cleopatra amongst them. A poet, historian, linguist, architect, general, politician, and engineer, was he truly of the Populi party for the People of Rome? Or a despot and tyrant? Presented by Sebastian Lockwood.
