De Inventione, I
In 43BC, a year after the assassination of Julius Caesar, a man’s severed head and hands were nailed to the speaker’s podium of the Roman Senate. They had belonged to Marcus Tullius Cicero, who had risen from humble origins to become one of the most significant political figures in Rome. A lawyer by training, master orator, his name has become a byword for rhetorical skill and eloquence.
He lived a remarkable life in the dying days of the Roman Republic, but also wrote extensively, on rhetorical theory, religion, and philosophy. The legacy of his writings, on Western education and thought in the Middle Ages, was immense. In this podcast we focus on his earliest surviving work. A minute podcast in which a panel of Oxford students and young researchers join hosts Aled Walker and Alice Harberd to discuss their academic and intellectual passions.
Each episode will have a different theme, ranging from Marxism to Medieval Song, Cicero to Sondheim — a tribute to the astonishing diversity of thought which takes place in Inventionne.
