The great conspiracy against Julius Caesar - Kathryn Tempest

  • Опубликовано: 18 дек 2014
  • View full lesson:
    On March 15th, 44 BCE, Roman dictator Julius Caesar was assassinated by a group of about 60 of his own senators. Why did these self-titled Liberators want him dead? And why did Brutus, whose own life had been saved by Caesar, join in the plot? Kathryn Tempest investigates the personal and political assassination of Julius Caesar.
    Lesson by Kathryn Tempest, animation by Brett Underhill.

    There's more to why Brutus killed Caesar.... Please.... Visit history channel.... Brutus was annoyed with Caesar for other things...... Afterall.... Caesar was also brutal.... We need not portray history characters as good or bad but let's present their story as it is..... We choose to learn what ever we want from it.... That's the best way...

    Assassinations are always bad no matter the motivation. The end never justifies the means as the means are ends themselves. If they went about it another way, I'm pretty sure it would have turned out exponentially better no matter what.

    I liked your video but I could not finish watching it. You have made many fact mistakes in this short video.
    1. Caesar's last word is Et tu, Brute? It means even you, Brutus?
    2. Marcus Brutus is not Caesar's son. Not even maybe.
    3. Caesar's last word was referring to Decimus Brutus not Marcus Brutus. Marcus Brutus had never made any accomplishment and had no talent in politics, rather Decimus Brutus is Caesar's right hand and Caesar's successor after Octavius later revealed in Caesar's will.
    4. Caesar's last move was to cover his wounded body with toga, not his face....plz.........
    I would like to see more video from you and hope you can give some respect to the historical facts.

    I'm just going to leave this hear for consideration and see where it goes; and who actually does their research regarding it: A scholarly work titled "The Comet of 44 BCE and Caesar's Funeral Games", and an article titled "Liberalia Tu Acasas" has determined that Caesar's assassination on March 15th in the year 44BCE coincided, within that same year, with the date of Passover. This is all the more noncoincidental when one realizes that Caesar was in possession of the Etrusca Disciplina prior to his assassination, which was useful in predicting astronomical events; even unto the occurrence of comets.
    Flavius Eutropius also records that out of all the twenty-three stab wounds to Caesar; the fatal one was in his side near the chest region; and was the first recorded autopsy in history. Seeing as Longinus was a, if not the main conspirator, what other momentous figure, in terms of historical particulars, can be said to have received a stab in his side by a particular Longinus? It is also not mentioned that after his death a wax image of his body, with stab wounds, and wearing both a regal toga and a crown of acanthus leaves, was nailed to a revolving tropaion (a cruciform structure personifying Victory). It was displayed by Mark Antony to the entire populace of Rome upon the Forum Romanum. Four months after this assassination a daytime comet appeared during Caesar's funeral games and birth month for seven days; in which Mark Antony interpreted as the soul of Caesar ascending into heaven to join both his divine mother Venus and his divine father Mars. These claims Caesar had already made during his lifetime. He had also made claims about his direct familial derivation from Aeneas. All this cemented his eventual divination. In "The Divination of Caesar and Augustus" Caesar is seen to have been equated with Romulus/Quirinus and Aeneas; as well as the household gods, being the Lares and Penates. This was no small feat and the propaganda surrounding it served instrumental tools in serving the needs of Antony and Octavius within their civil war. Eventually, as we all know, Octavius one out and was given the title Augustus. This is significant because, as those of Augustus' court, such as Horace and Vergil testify, his birth ushered in the long awaited return of the Golden Age; or rather, the Pax Romana. This was done by exemplifying, and playing upon, Augustus' status in relation to his divine father; of which the term "divi filius", or "son of god" was employed. The Pax Romana, the Golden Age, and the prophecies of the Sybilline Oracles were anchored on birth narratives constructed for Augustus; of which, the first use of the term "evangelion", or "good news", as found on the Priene Calendar Inscription, was used. There's a lot people dont know about Caesar. Also, passion plays to Romulus were conducted in honor of Romulus during Caesar's birth month all throughout the empire.

      +Jay Lee I am also quite aware that the establishment of "orthodoxy" denotes a unilineal Christian development, but that such was not the actual case in history. Aside from P52, being but a fragment, the first mention we have of the canonical gospels being in mere circulation comes from Irenaeus ca. 185 CE. By then there were several Christianities; though I am not opposed to the idea that they were all merely different soteriological understandings of the Imperial Cult as it developed in different geographical localities of the empire. During these times Mystery Cults were being introduced and fashioned upon the Imperial Cult as well. The Imperial Cult is but one aspect of Christianity, but by no means an insignificant one; as Marcion was headquartered in Asia Minor, a major epicenter of the Imperial Cult.

      +Jay Lee You're very keen on this. I remain as impartial as I can to this scenario. However, if I were to take someone like Bart Ehrman's stance on a historical Jesus, especially what has been put forward by him in his lectures titled "How Jesus Became God", in understanding that the earliest Christology was that of an adoptionist one (as expressed by both Paul and the Ebionites), then I have to conclude, through his own tongue-in-cheek historical corollaries, that such refers to a medium of divinization handed down from Caesar to Augustus.

      Might I add that the information surrounding the Priene Calendar Inscription is supplemented by two books "The Worship of Augustus Caesar" by Alexander Delmar and "The Death of Augustus and his Conversion to Christ" by Colin Kirk. And for the benefit of those curious enough to inquire, most, if not all, the geographical localities Paul visited in the letters attributed to his name, are epicenters of the Roman Imperial Cult.

      Well, we have several Roman & Greek historians who wrote about Caesar. Also, a famous senator named Cicero, and yes he was there at the moment when Caesar died, wrote hundreds of letters over a long period and they still survive. There are letters that mention of this incident. Funny thing is, Cicero complains to one of the conspirators that they hadn't killed Caesar's right-hand man as well.
