Lucius Sirgius Catiline was a Roman senator and patrician with a family lineage dating back to the Second Punic War. So why would he take the steps to conspire to have certain senators assassinated and Rome - the eternal city - burned? Historian, author, and professor at Georgetown University, Josiah Osgood, joins the podcast to discuss the famous Catiline Conspiracy and his new book "How to Stop a Conspiracy: An Ancient Guide to Saving a Republic." His book is actually translation of Sallust's famous work "The War with Catiline."
