Essay writing

TITLE: Political and religious ideology in the Aeneid: "The right man for the job?"

To Pass this you need to demonstrate in depth understanding of significant ideologies in the classical world.


-Write the dialogue between a Roman father and son during the 1st century CE, who feel differently about the actions of Aeneas, OR an essay with annotated images, in relation to aspects of Roman political and religious ideology.

-In the course of the dialogue demonstrate that you understand the political and religious ideologies represented in The Aeneid and their connection to the socio-political life of Rome during the time of Augustus (27 BCE to14 CE approximately).

You could include the two men's opinions of, and attitudes to, aspects such as:

- relationship between gods and men

- role of fate

- role of the individual

- duty to the state

- connections between ideals represented in The Aeneid and the reforms of Augustus.

- political propaganda

- the ideological justification of 'one man government'

- politics and the pax deorum (peace of the god)

You may include other relevant aspects.

Have the two men quote from primary sources where appropriate to support their opinions.

-In your dialogue/essay make sure you show insight into the political and religious ideologies of Rome as demonstrated in The Aeneid by including sufficient detail and evidence for each of the points you make.

A dialogue that shows insight could include but is not limited to:

- reasons for continuing and changes in opinion between the republic and empire.

- themes and patterns.

- links to cultural expectations and/or codes of behavior.

- limitations of sources of evidence.


You will use a medium of your choice to present your perceptive understanding. Formats of presentation could include an essay with annotated images, or a dialogue.


While using secondary source material to support points is not a requirement of the standard at any level of achievement, you are strongly encouraged to do so. This may allow you to demonstrate perceptive understanding of significant ideology(ies) in the classical world.

-Primary sources include evidence surviving from the classical world, including written material in translation and artifacts of all kinds.

-Secondary sources include evidence drawn from later commentaries, for example,books,websites, encyclopedias, and later works of art and architecture.

Some resources that are suitable for examining political and religious ideology in the Aeneid and career of Augustus are:

Primary sources:

Virgil ' The Aeneid '

Plutarch ' Life of Augustus '

Suetonius ' The Twelve Caesars '

Secondary sources:

The Romans and their gods in the age of Augustus, Ogilvie R.M. , W.W. Norton & Co, London (1969).
