The Second Greatest Story Ever Told: The Life of Cicero, Roman Statesman, Politician, and Friend

March 21, 2019

In an address given for Oakcrest's Fifth Annual O'Donovan Humanities Lecture, Oakcrest Classical languages teacher Paula Rondon-Burgos discusses the life of Marcus Tullius Cicero, a first-century B.C. Roman statesman. He provides a much-needed mirror for our times, one which reflects back the truth of the human person, both in its inherent fallibility and in its capacity for greatness. Introduction given by Mary T. Ortiz, Head of School.
