Selections from Cicero - Speeches, Philosophical Works & Letters: Read in Latin by John F.C. Richards

Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC–43 BC) was a Roman philosopher, politician, and orator. Classical scholars view him as being a master of the Latin language. Cicero’s writings, rediscovered by the Italian poet Petrarch in the 14th century, have influenced European philosophers, writers, and political thinkers since the Renaissance. In this recording, Professor John F.C. Richards reads Cicero’s selected speeches, philosophical works, and letters in their original Latin. The Latin text and English translations are included in the liner notes.
