What Will You Learn?

The major myths of ancient Rome – stories of gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines. From the Roman Mythology Diploma Course, you’ll not only learn about these myths but also their context within Rome’s rise to glory and the crucial political and social function that mythology had in shaping Rome into one of the world’s greatest civilisations.

The course opens with an exploration of the origin myth, private and public practices of ancient religious rituals, and the Etruscan and Greek influences on Rome.

We’ll look at the myth of Romulus and Remus and the founding of Rome – from both mythological and archaeological viewpoints – and examine each of the seven kings who are said to have ruled. The course also examines another ‘founding myth’ of Rome through the city’s connection with Troy, where you’ll learn of Aeneas and his importance to Rome. You’ll also learn about the imperial cults that formed as Rome moved from republic to empire and what happened to push the Roman people into accepting their leaders as gods.

We’ll look at early Roman deities, the 12 principal deities, and take an in-depth exploration of Mars and Venus and the Roman god of gods, Jupiter.

The course concludes with an examination of important myths. We’ll look at the Abduction of the Sabine Women and the Rape of Lucretia, exploring how they relate to changes in Roman history. This is followed by a study of the legends Horatius at the Bridge, Coriolanus and Gaius Mucius, and how they relate to Rome’s history and focus on war and valour.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Learn about the Etruscan and Greek influences on Rome
  • Uncover myths about the founding of Rome and its seven kings
  • Become familiar with the imperial cults that formed with the empire
  • Learn about Roman deities, in particular Jupiter, Mars, and Venus
  • Examine important myths

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
