1 They’re not just used as bases anymore! InfinitivesThey’re not just used as bases anymore!
2 Objectives I can: Form and translate the five infinitives Recognize and translate the uses of the infinitive: subjective, historical, objective, complementary, and indirect statementDetermine which types of verbs require infinitive structuresUse the correct tense of infinitive to show relationship in time to main verb of indirect statement
3 ObjectivesI can:Translate a present infinitive to show concurrent action with the main verbTranslate a perfect infinitive to show action occurring before the main verbTranslate a future infinitive to show occurring after the main verb
4 Cultural Objectives I can: Describe the effect of the Punic Wars on the development of RomeIdentify the major personalities of the late Republic and describe their contributions to the end of the RepublicExplain the reasons behind the assassination of Julius Caesar and the consequences of the actionDescribe the civil war between Octavian and Antony and how Octavian rose to power
5 I can:Describe the principate of Augustus and his political propagandaExplain the fatal flaw set by Augustus not having an heir and the effect this had on the rest of Roman history
7 Present Active Infinitives Second principal part of the verbAmo, amare, amavi, amatusUsually ends with reTranslationTo verbi.e. amare = to loveMost commonly used as a complementary infinitive which completes an incomplete verb like possum, debeo, or voloDebemus amare nostras vicinas. We ought to love our neighbors.
8 Possible confusion with “re” “ere” can be substituted for “erunt” in the perfect active tenseamaverunt = amavereIf the “ere” is attached to the third principal part of a verb, it is not an infinitive.Remember that many third principal parts end with “u” or “v” or “s” or “x”; this will help you recognize this alternate form.
9 Present Passive Infinitives Present passive infinitives are made from the present active infinitive (2nd principal part)For most verbs, remove the final e and replace it with an iAmare becomes amariVidere becomes videriScire becomes sciri
10 3rd conjugation present passive infinitives For third conjugation (ere) and 3rd IO, (io,ere) remove the ere and add iEmere becomes emiAccipere becomes accipi
11 Perfect active Infinitives Start with the third principal partRemove the “i”Add “isse”amavisseTranslation : to have ________most commonly used in indirect statementsScivit se interfecisse suum amicumHe knew that he had killed his friend
12 Perfect Passive Infinitives Begin with the 4th principal partRemove the “us” or “um” whichever is there.You will have to adjust this part to agree with whoever is receiving the action; most commonly it will be accusative because of the indirect statementUM/OS MASCULINEAM/AS FEMININIEUM/A NEUTERAdd “esse” as a separate partamatam esse to have been lovedMost commonly used in indirect statementScivit suum amicum interfectum esse a se.He knew that his friend had been killed by him.
13 Future Active Infinitive Begin with the fourth principal part.Remove the “us” and add”ur”; you will have to adjust this part to agree with whoever is doing the action. It will usually be accusative because of the indirect statement.UM/OS MASCULINEAM/AS FEMININEUM/A NEUTERAdd “esse” as a separate part.amaturam esse to be about to loveTranslation “to be about to_________”
14 Formation PracticeChoose five infinitives from your vocabulary list and form the five infinitives with translation. You must choose at least one 2nd conjugation (ēre) and at least one 3rd conjugation (ere) verb.
15 Uses of the InfinitiveHistorical, subjective, objective, complementary, and the indirect statement
16 Historical infinitives usually used for a series of actionstranslated as an imperfect tense verb to show a continuous seriesExampleCaesar circumvenire Gallos, obstare copias, et non sinere ullum exitus e castris.Caesar was encircling the Gauls, blocking supplies, and not allowing any exit from the camp.
17 Subjective Infinitives functions as the subject of the sentencegrammatically treated as a neuter singular nounin English can be translated as a gerund or an infinitiveExampleRegere aeque est difficillima res.To rule fairly is a most difficult thing.
18 Objective Infinitives functions like a direct objectmost commonly used with iubeo, iubēre, iussi, iussus (to order)treated like a neuter nounexampleMarius iubet milites oppugnare SullamMarius orders the soldiers to attack Sulla.
19 Complementary Infinitives complete the meaning of an incomplete verbmost commonly used with a form of possum, debeo, paro, coepit, volo, nolo, cupio, incipio, necesse est, prohibeo and many other verbs that leave the reader hanging as to what is happeningExampleCaesar poterat vincire Galliam.Caesar was able to conquer Gaul.
20 The Indirect Statement used to report a statementfollows a verb of mental action such as saying, thinking, understanding, knowing, perceiving, et al.subject of the indirect statement will used the accusativeverb of the indirect statement will be an infinitiveexampleScio Caesarem mortuus esse.I know that Caesar is dead.
21 The Infinitive of the Indirect Statement The choice of the tense of the infinitive is relative to the main verbsame time = presentbefore = perfectafter = futureThe first part of the perfect passive and future active infinitive will be in the accusative and will agree with the accusative subject.
22 Examples scio Caesarem pugnare in Galliā. I know that Caesar is fighting in Gaul.same timeScio Caesarem pugnavisse in Galliā..I know that Caesar was fighting in Gaul.beforeScio Caesarem pungaturum esse in GalliāI know that Caesar will fight in Gaul.after
23 Indirect Statement issues The subject cannot be left understood; the accusative noun must be there.If the subject of the indirect statement is the same as the main clause, you will use the reflexive pronoun.exampleCaesar scivit se debere non ferre Cleopatram Romam.Caesar knew that he ought not to bring Cleopatra to Romedebere is the indirect statemnent; ferre in complmentary, se is the subject accusative reflexive.
24 Infinitives Issue #2A LATIN infinitive cannot ever be used to show purpose. To show purpose, you must use a subjunctive or a gerund/gerundive.ExampleCaesar went to Gaul to make his reputationCaesar ivit ad Galliam facere famam. WRONGCaesar ivit ad Galliam ut faceret famam. right

64 Review of the Roman Republic System Why did the Romans move from monarchy to republic?What are the patricians and plebians?What is a republic?How did they separate the powers of government? Why?How did the Punic Wars change Rome?For only what crime could a Roman citizen be executed?(Junnius Brutus executed his own sons.)
65 The Beginning of the End Gaius MariusUrban poor with nothing to doWhy did Rome now have the urban poor?Marius cancelled the property requirement to be in the armyServe 25 years and you get free landWhy would this appeal to the urban poor?Army becomes loyal to individual commanders who allow them to share the “booty” (Define booty in this context.)
67 Gaius MariusWhy is it a problem for the army to be loyal to its commander, not the country?Why would soldiers feel this way?The Marian Spearspecialized tip that “fish-hooks” when it hits a shieldWhy is this an improvement?How would this affect the soldiers and their feelings about Marius?
68 Gaius Marius breaks the cursus honorum You are supposed to wait 10 years between consulships.Marius was allowed to hold consecutive consulshipsWhy is this problem?How will this contribute to the fall of the republic?The Social Wars: Italians who were not citizens rebelled until they were granted citizenship.This conflict is where Marius gained most of his power.
69 Lucius Cornelius Sulla came from old but bankrupt familygot his start serving with Marius but later turned on Marius because he thought Marius was giving too much power to the plebiansCivil War against Mariusmarched his army on Romefirst time an elected official had attacked his own city
70 Lucius Cornelia SullaSince Marius had established the precedent of breaking the cursus honorum, Sulla wanted multiple, consecutive consulships.Instead became dictatorDid not follow example of Cinncinnatus the Dictator who left his farm, defeated the enemy, and retired in three days
71 Sulla passed laws to give the patricians more power established the precedent of using the army for personal powerestablished the precedent of using proscriptionproscription is publishing a list of people considered enemies of the state and guilty of treasonanyone on the list can be killed by anyone; the killer would not be punished but rewarded with part of dead person’s propertySulla retired eventually after wrecking havoc on the system, became a farmer who grew cabbages, and died two years later
73 Julius Caesar B.C.Marius and Sulla and their civil wars had severely undermined the Republic.This is the best documented time period in Roman historyCaesar wrote almost daily commentaries (Ancient Tweets)letters and speeches of CiceroRoman historians wrote much about this periodWhy? ( Think about WWII versus 1950s)
74 Gaius Julius Caesar who destroyed the Republic; from old, rich family who claimed descent from Venus
75 Gaius Julius Caesarhis father died when he was a teenager; nephew to Gaius MariusSulla tried to make him divorce his first wife but he refused and left Italyalways very ambitious; his role model was Alexander the GreatCompleted the cursus honorum
76 Julius Caesar Master at manipulation gave great funeral games for his aunt to win popularity with the common peoplesaid that the best source of information about enemies was their wives and daughterscould convince people to do what he wanted without them seeming to know they were being manipulatedmilitary genius beloved by his troops
77 The First TriumvirateRome in general mess with massive corruption leads to formation of informal rule by a three man alliance called a triumvirate Pompey the Great = military experience Crassus = money Caesar = popular support To cement alliance, Pompey married Caesar’s daughter, Julia
78 Caesar’s Career in Gaul After consulship, became governor of Gaulneeded money and military experienceconquered Gaul (France and surrounding area) which almost doubled the size of the empire, even invaded Britainsold conquered people into slavery $$$$$$$$$built loyal armyled by exampleshared with soldiers; knew the name of every centurionspent 10 years with his army
79 Caesar as a Threat Triple threat wants another consulship Money from GaulPolitical support in Rome from plebians especiallyloyal army who would follow him to %^& and backwants another consulshipCrassus now dead; tried to invade Parthia; head became a toy for kingJulia died in childbirth; Caesar blamed Pompey so no longer have personal connectionSenate demands he disband his army before he can run for office
80 Civil War ...againPompey and Senate insecure about Caesar’s growing power, especially his armyCaesar crosses the Rubicon and invades ItalyPompey and the Senate flee to Greece so that Pompey can gather his troops which are mostly in the Eastern provincesforgot to take the treasury from Rome so Caesar gets all the money
81 Civil War: Caesar versus Pompey and the Senate Big battle at PharsalusCaesar outnumberedPompey had senators bothering him; already had camp prepared for victory celebrationsCaesar told troops to go for faces of patriciansCaesar won; Pompey ran to Egypt to King Ptolemy who owed him favorsCaesar pardoned everyone who fought against him to avoid the problems that had followed Marius/Sulla war
82 Civil War and its aftermath Ptolemy just a kid; his advisors convince him to kill PompeyGives Caesar a “present” Pompey’s head and signet ringCaesar very angry but decided to stay in Egypt to help settle dispute between Ptolemy and his sister/wife Cleopatra VIIWhy would Caesar be angry?
83 Cleopatra VIIactually a blue-eyed, blondeGreek not Egyptianvery smart but ruthlessknew how to make the best out of what she had
84 Only image of Cleopatra to survive except coins
85 Caesar in Egypt Cleopatra sneaks into palace rolled up in a rug Caesar impressed by her intelligence and willingness to learnspends too much time in Egypt playing with Cleopatrashe gives birth to son Caesarion but Caesar smart enough not to recognize him legallyleads war to get Cleopatra the thronePtolemy killedLibrary of Alexandria burnedCaesar returns to Rome but makes plan to have Cleopatra join him
86 Caesar the Dictator Veni, vidi, vici changed calendar to Julian calendarcancelled debtsCleopatra and her son come to Rome and live nearbybig insult to his wife Calpurniabig insult to people of RomeWhy?appoints new senators to fill out ranks from warSenate very resentful
87 The Conspiracy Caesar planning a war against Parthia Being dictator not so much fun; sick with epilepsy getting worseSenate plans to kill himconspiracy led by Cassius and Brutusboth had been pardoned by CaesarBrutus owed his career to Caesar but had issues with him because of his motherBrutus key figure because his ancestor had overthrown last king
88 The Murder of CaesarCaesar was warned by a soothsayer to “Beware the Ides of March”Went to senate meeting anywayheld in Theater of Pompey because senate house had been burnedseparated him from Marc Antony his lieutenantsurrounded by senators pretending to ask him questionsstabbed timesBrutus the last assassin “Et tu, mi fili”
89 After the MurderConspirators rush out into Forum with bloody knives yelling “Sic semper tyrannis”John Wilkes Boothe will say the same thing when he kills LincolnNot very well-planned; had no plan of what to do nextattacked by plebians who loved Caesarburned the houses of conspirators who had to flee Romecreated a power vacuum that will led to the third civil war and one man rule
90 What can we learn from this? loyalty of army to country not individualsdon’t let people be exceptions to the structure of the governmentIf you remove a ruler, especially by force, always have a plan for the new governmentBe careful about pardoning people; they don’t usually forgive you.Don’t insult the public by having your girlfriend live close to your wife.
91 The Rise of Augustus and Transition to Rule by Emperor What happens when people give up their civil liberties
92 Legacy of Julius Caesar Remember what happened to Julius CaesarEveryone, especially Marc Antony, thought Caesar would name Marc Antony, his second-in-command, as his heirAntony had been working with Caesar throughout his careerAntony had military experience and was well liked by Caesar’s troopsAntony was a drunk.
93 Caesar’s WillCaesar had no legitimate children (remember his daughter Julia died in childbirth)named his great-nephew Octavius as his heir and adopted him as his son in his willWhat did Octavius get?huge amount of moneyloyalty of army who adored Caesar and would want to support whomever he named as successorhatred of Marc Antony and many senators, especially Brutus and Cassius
94 Octavius’ Dilemmaonly 18 years old; no government or military experiencedamned if he does acceptMarc Antony and most of the senate will not support himdamned if he doesn’t acceptMarc Antony and most of the senate will have him killed to remove him as a threat to their ruledecides with help of two close friends to go for itgoes to the army and makes a speech about needing to punish the assassins of his father Julius Caesarthe army backs him against the senate and Antony
95 Octavius’ Rise to Power Step one was to get recognition for senatefights a battle against Marc Antony who was fighting the senate; surprisingly winsorders senate to appoint him consulSenate refuses until Octavius brings his very loyal army to Rome to convince themStep Two was to punish Brutus and Cassiusforms the Second Triumvirate of Octavius, Marc Antony, LepidusDefeats Brutus and Cassius ( both commit suicide) at the battle of Phillippi
96 Octavius’ Continued Rise Step Three was to get rid of Antonydivide the empire into two partsOctavius gets the Western part (Europe)Antony gets the Eastern part (Asia, Africa, Egypt)cement the alliance by having Antony marry Octavius’ sister OctaviaAntony goes to Egypt because it’s the richest part of the East
97 Antony and Egypt Antony meets Cleopatra who arrives on a golden boat Cleopatra is very ambitious; all she wants is to rule the worldhad tried with Caesar and that didn’t work outplans to use Antony to get herself into world powerAntony not thinking with the right body partshooks up with Cleopatra; divorces OctaviaRemember Romans already don’t like Cleopatra
98 Octavius’ Continued Rise to Power Antony’s behavior with Cleopatra perfect excuse for conflict with OctaviusOctavius claims Antony is controlled by Cleopatra a foreign queenRomans do not trust powerful womenAntony actually gave Cleopatra (with whom he was busily having children) parts of the Roman Empire as a presentHow would the Roman react to this?Antony and Octavius meet at the Battle of Actium to decide who will rule
99 Battle of Actium 31 BC Octavius actually doesn’t command the troops sick; never very physically strongMarcus Agrippa, his friend since childhood, commands troopsDuring battle when it looks like Cleopatra and Antony are losing, she sails off with all the moneyAntony follows her and abandons his troopsnot going after the money, going after his loverhis troops think he’s “whipped” and join Octavius
100 Final Removal of Antony After Actium, Antony joins Cleopatra in Alexandriathey both know they are beaten when Octavius arrivesboth commit suicideAntony stabs himself (manages to screw that up too)Cleopatra by legend has herself bitten by a snake smuggled into her tomb in a basket of figsProbably really used poison since she practiced with poisonsOctavius now sole ruler of Rome
101 Octavius becomes first emperor Romans had been through three civil wars less than 60 yearsPeople just wanted someone who could stabilize the governmentOctavius very smartnever had himself named dictator; called himself “princeps” which mean “first citizen”held successive consulships but claimed his official role only a tribune (which gave him veto power)real source of power = army and moneyNamed Augustus by senate
102 Augustus’ Reign Very stable time begins the Pax Romana= 200 years of relative peacesupports the arts and literaturepays for the Aeneid which is the most important book in Roman literaturepoets Horace and Ovid also wrote during this time but Ovid was exiled for writing a seduction manualstarted the first fire brigades and policepays for lots of building projects“I found Rome a city of bricks, I leave it a city of marbleruled until 14 AD
103 Problems with Augustus’ Reign lost over 10,000 soldiers in Battle of Teutoberg Forest in Germany when defeated by Arminius whom the Romans had trainedsuccession issues because only had one child Juliashe had five children including three boys but they all died youngshe was super slut who had to be exiled because she went against Augustus’ family values policyhad to name his stepson Tiberius as his successorcouldn’t stand TiberiusLack of a natural heir will lead to instability of succession throughout Roman historyBeginning of emperor worship which will lead to crazy emperors
