Cicero

The Writings of Cicero

circa 86 BCE - 43 BCE

Why is it canonical?

Few people had as much influence on not only the Latin language, but on perceptions of Roman culture and values than Cicero. Prior to the renaissance, Cicero's works were rediscovered, and his thinking had a tremendous impact on the values of the renaissance itself (humanism, republicanism, etc.)
