In Vergil’s Empire, Eve Adler offers an exciting new interpretation of the political thought of Vergil’s Aeneid. Adler argues that in this epic poem, Vergil presents the theoretical foundations of a new political order, one that resolves the conflict between scientific enlightenment and ancestral religion that permeated the ancient world.
