CICERO, M[arcus] Tulllius; BULLIONS, Rev. Peter
Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43, BCE), was a scholar and statesman who also served as a lawyer during what is now considered the Golden Age of Ancient Roman literature. Cicero is best known for his oratory skills. This book offers readers a selection of his exemplary public speeches, often in favour of Republican values in an increasingly authoritarian political system. A timely read in spite of its ancient origins.
