Distinguished Lecture Series A series of lectures presented by FAU faculty Globalization in Antiquity: Augustus, Herod and the Second Temple Byron McCane, Ph.D., Professor of History and Religion Thursday, Feb. 23, 4 pm A prominent historian has remarked that Augustus didn't create the Empire, but he did see it coming, so he got out front and led the parade. Herod, another astute reader of the signs of the times, quickly fell in step right behind Augustus. The Second Temple was a prominent part of Herod's multi-faceted effort to draw the Jews of Palestine willingly into Roman orbit. University Theatre, FAU Boca Raton Campus
