Julius Caesar

Caesar's adopted son, Augustus (or Octavian) was the Caesar Augustus of the bible.  We explored his relationship to Jesus last December 19th.  Beware the ides of March, Caesar.  You got a bit too big for your breeches and were cut down to size.  No kids either, his love child with Cleopatra, Caesarian, was murdered at age 17, and his baby girl died the week she was born.  Caesar is 5 degrees from Pope John Paul II.

Caesar to Augustus to Jesus to Saint Peter to John Paul.

We take a break from women and holocaust remembrance for various and entertaining explorations of Julius Caesar, who met his end a few thousand years ago, today.
