In this reader question and answer episode, I talk about: What historians know about Marcus Aurelius's notebook, "Meditations", and why Marcus wrote it. What would have happened had Marcus killed Commodus Was Marcus an overly-trusting dupe who got taken advantage of? The deal with Marcus's wife, Faustina, and her relationship to the two classic Rom…
 
Romans of the late empire were well aware that their borders had become porous, that fewer soldiers stood ready to drive out the increasingly bold barbarian tribes, that there was less tax revenue to fund everything, and that they seemed to end every generation a bit worse off than they'd been at the beginning of it. That is to say that the Romans …
 
Roman history fans know two things about Commodus: First, he was a horribly corrupt, psychopathic emperor. Second, he reigned at the end of the Pax Romana, and helped start Rome's slow decline towards eventual dissolution. The Roman senator and historian Cassius Dio, who knew Commodus and his father, Marcus Aurelius, personally, tells us that with …
 
Back in Rome after more than eight years of defending the empire from the barbarian hordes of Europe and the armies of an usurper, Marcus Aurelius settles in for one of the few brief periods of peace he experiences during his entire reign. There's a law code to rewrite for the good of slaves and free men alike, infrastructure that needs to be rebui…
 
Why did one of the greatest, most accomplished, and most morally-centered emperors in Roman history let an immoral tyrant succeed him? Marcus Aurelius knew how far the apple had fallen from the tree when it came to his son Commodus, yet acquiesced to his succession, setting aside a five-generation precedent of choosing emperors based on merit rathe…
 
The one man with the experience, position, and breeding to challenge Marcus Aurelius's claim to the throne decides to take a crack at him, and the Roman Empire is plunged into civil war. Gaius Avidius Cassius is no philosopher, and as the eastern legions swear allegiance to him and hail him as the new emperor, he issues a letter condemning Marcus f…
 
As the Roman Empire's first true disease epidemic rips it apart at the seams and brings an end to the halcyon days of the Pax Romona, the emperor Marcus Aurelius struggles to keep everything from falling apart.

Hadrian's bad example taught Marcus how to avoid being a tyrant. Marcus's philosophy, Stoicism, and the example of his adoptive father, Antoninus Pius, showed him the right path.

Vologases IV did not wait. Antoninus Pius was barely cold in his grave when the Parthian King of Kings launched a surprise attack on Rome, hoping to catch the empire flat-footed.

Why didn't the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius kill his son Commodus? It probably sounds like a strange question, since we normally don't object to men refraining from the murder of their children, but Marcus Aurelius wasn't an average sort of man, and Commodus was far from an average son. In this series, we're going to examine the life of the man re…

Dr. Steve Savage: "Many consumers believe that the Organic label means the food has superior nutrition and is safer, especially in regard to pesticide residues. This is not true. Studies have shown no appreciable difference in nutrition between crops grown either organically or conventionally." Organic food is healthier and better for the environme…
 
Dr. Alan Goldhamer: “The goal is to try to be getting healthier a little bit faster than you're getting older and sicker. If you succeed, you're able to sustain health.
