Join us for Good Governance and the Transition of Power, Lessons from the Roman Empire with David Castriota, Mary Griggs Burke Chair in Art & Art History on Saturday, November 14 at 1:00 PM Eastern Time. Many people think that the greatest threat the Roman Empire faced was barbarian invasion. Actually, what threatened it most was the very internal problem of guaranteeing that power would be held by a ruler who was up to the job, and that he would see to it that he was succeeded by someone equally capable by virtue of experience and temperament. But the simple fact is that this only happened continuously in the second century AD. During the rest of its history the Roman Empire was plagued by rulers who were either sociopaths or incompetents, or both, and even good emperors often failed to choose and groom a worthy successor. The lesson of history here is painfully relevant to our own time and our own failing empire. Many of our leaders claim that we are threatened by external enemies, but the real threat is from within. It comes from people in authority with no conception of respect for our institutions, from a public that does not demand competence from its leaders, and from a system that has repeatedly granted power to a chief executive who lacked the abilities and the moral compass to use that power wisely in the interest of the American people. Will we learn the lessons that history has to offer and self-correct, or will historians someday marvel at how closely the decline and fall of the American Empire paralleled that of the Roman one?

Saturday December 5
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
The Creation accounts of the Bible's Book of Genesis highlight human beings as unique creatures of the earth, endowed with gifts that carry responsibilities: godlikeness, "dominion," speech, growing self-awareness, and awareness of the environment - cosmic and terrestrial - in which humans are to live and prosper, and which they are called to foster. These foundational passages in the Bible can refresh our wonder at the worlds we abide in and strengthen our sense of responsibility to the works of earth-care that we are uniquely qualified and challenged to carry on. Seminar at 1:00 PM Eastern Time led by William Shullenberger, Literature Faculty. A zoom link will be sent to registrants within 24 hours of the event or email alum@sarahlawrence.edu.
