Many hostages are then taken and the legions are sent into winter quarters. Once more, when the dispatches of Caesar's mighty victories reach Rome, the senate proclaims a public thanksgiving of twenty days. Analysis. This is the longest book in the Gallic Wars and it describes the great revolt of most of the Gallic tribes. Tribes which Caesar.   Caesar was Pontifex Maximus as well as dictator. The office of Pontifex Maximus was a magistracy in charge of Roman religious observance. Caesar's most notable achievement in this office was to reform the calendar so that religious festivals fell in line with their proper seasonal patterns.

Moving away from some of the great characters in Roman history, Mary Beard’s The Roman Triumph is a radical re-examination of one of Rome’s ancient ceremonies. I have chosen this because a lot of books on Ancient Rome, my own included, generally like to tell stories that take fragments of evidence and piece them together to make a coherent.   Caesar's Women is the fourth installment in Colleen McCullough's "Masters of Rome" Series. This is a series of books that follows the most colourful characters who made the Late Roman Republic such a fun and exciting time and place to study. In her first book, "First Man in Rome" she charted the rise, rise and rise of Gaius Marius.5/5(5).

  Centuries later, after the word “pontifex” had become a term used for Christian bishops,[4] including the Bishop of Rome,[5] the title of “Pontifex Maximus” was applied within the Roman Catholic Church to the Pope as its chief bishop. Julius Caesar was elected pontifex maximus in 63 BCE and kept the office until his death. The house where he spent the night before he was killed, was the domus publica. After his death, Marcus Aemilius Lepidus became pontifex maximus ( BCE); when he died, the emperor Augustus became responsible for the state cult.

Julius Caesar: The Greatest Pontiff Paperback – Ma by Caius T. Suetonius Rome See all 2 formats and editions Hide other formats and editions. Price Author: Caius T. Suetonius. This paper discusses of Caesar’s tenure of the priesthood of pontifex maximus and its place in the development of his political career.

The circumstances that led to his election to that important office receive close consideration, as well as the evidence for Caesar’s fulfilment of his priestly duties.

Some general remarks are offered on the role of public priesthoods in the Roman. *Starred Review* Gordianus the Finder is a marvelous example of a credible early-history sleuth—sophisticated, cagey, and loosely attached to the shifting power structure of Rome in the time of Caesar, Pompey, Cato, and Cicero/5(73).

The title Pontifex Maximus was held by the head administrator of the Roman pagan religion. Eventually the Caesars envied this title of high honor and power; and first Julius Caesar and then Augustus Caesar made the title Rome office their own, as did later emperors.

A pontiff (from Latin pontifex) was, in Roman antiquity, a member of the most illustrious of the colleges of priests of the Roman religion, the College of Pontiffs.[1][2] The term “pontiff” was later applied to any high or chief priest and, in Roman Catholic ecclesiastical usage, to a bishop and more particularly to the Bishop of Rome, the.

Caesar’s Messiah is a book by Joseph Atwill, which argues that the New Testament Gospels were written as wartime propaganda by scholars connected to the Roman imperial court of the Flavian emperors: Vespasian, Titus and ing to Atwill, their primary purpose in creating the religion was to control the spread of Judaism and moderate its political virulence.

Henceforth, the title Pontifex Maximus was used by the Roman Caesars as illustrated on a Roman coin depicting the image of Augustus Caesar (27 B.C A.D.) with his title “Pont. Max.,” which is an abbreviation of Pontifex Maximus.

Thus, the Roman emperors, like the preceding Babylonian emperors, now served as priests of Babylonian. The Caesars Reign as Sovereign Pontiff Almost all history books record the great conquests of Julius Caesar in France, his two invasions of Britain in 55 and 54 BC, his assumption of the position of Life Dictator over the Roman dominions.

Julius Caesar, in full Gaius Julius Caesar, (born July 12/13. bce, Rome [Italy]—died Ma 44 bce, Rome), celebrated Roman general and statesman, the conqueror of Gaul (58–50 bce), victor in the civil war of 49–45 bce, and dictator (46–44 bce), who was launching a series of political and social reforms when he was assassinated by a group of nobles in the Senate House on the Ides of March.

The Pontifex Maximus (Latin, "greatest priest") was the chief high priest of the College of Pontiffs (Collegium Pontificum) in ancient Rome. This was the most important position in the ancient Roman religion, open only to patricians until BC, when a plebeian first occupied this post.

Another re-read after a long time. Bought this in the late s. Good read. It does start slow and then gets into the life of Caesar. The book captures Caesar's life from his escape from the Sulla civil war, his image of being a dandy and a profligate borrower and spender, his ride to prominence, his long years in Gaul and to his famous return to Rome/5.

When Attalus, the Pontiff and King of Pergamos died, in B.C.he bequeathed the headship of the "Babylonian Priesthood" to Rome. When the Etruscans came to Italy from Lydia, (the region of Pergamos), they brought with them the Babylonian religion and rites.

They set up a Pontiff who was head of the priesthood. Pontifex, (Latin: “bridge builder”,)plural Pontifices, member of a council of priests in ancient Rome.

The college, or collegium, of the pontifices was the most important Roman priesthood, being especially charged with the administration of the jus divinum (i.e., that part of.

The College of Pontiffs (Latin: Collegium Pontificum; see collegium) was a body of the ancient Roman state whose members were the highest-ranking priests of the state religion. The college consisted of the Pontifex Maximus and the other pontifices, the Rex Sacrorum, the fifteen flamens, and the Vestals.

Historians have traditionally viewed the chief pontificate, a prestigious Roman priesthood, as being employed to further personal ambitions and strike out at rival factions under the Republic. This book provides a new assessment of this priest's role before the Principate.

The actions of the chief pontiffs are shown to have been primarily motivated by the upholding of tradition and religious. The story of the emperor as pontifex maximus is framed by Augustus (12 BCE) and Gratian ( CE). Actually, in his quest to accumulate religious authority in the Roman state Augustus was following the precedent of his adoptive father (pontifex in 73, pontifex maximus in 63, augur in 47).1 In order not to seem to be in a hurryFile Size: KB.

After covering presenting the testimony of Scripture and the Fathers on the signs that must precede Antichrist, Bellarmine shows how none of this agrees with the Roman Pontiff.

[Note, the standalone volume Antichrist that we recently published is an abridgement of this book.] He also refutes the fable of “Pope Joan”.

Under Romulus the Romans had a calendar, but it was Numa, the priest-king from to B. C. ' who gave them the official cal­endar they used until the time of Julius Caesar. The regulation of the calendar, as we shall see, was under the control of the Pontifex Maximus and his associates in .Marcus Brutus claimed that around the same time, in a crowded assembly, Octavius, a mentally-disturbed individual with too free a tongue, greeted Pompey as ‘king’ and Caesar as ‘queen’, while Gaius Memmius charged Caesar directly with acting as Nicomedes’ cup-bearer at a banquet with his wanton friends, adding that Roman merchants.This is the first time that the title Pontifex Maximus was used to designate the Roman bishop, but even Roman Catholics note that it was used in irony: "As regards the title Pontifex Maximus, especially in its application to the pope, there was a further reminiscence of the dignity attached to that title in pagan Rome.
