Meditations

circa 170 - 180

Why is it canonical?

Marcus Aurelius, a Roman emperor for almost two decades, wrote these personal reflections while campaigning, never anticipating that anyone else would read them. Instead, the works have been appreciated and influential, an example of stoic philosophy and an early example of written personal reflection.
