In The Aeneid, Virgil paints a picture of the good man through the story of Aeneas. Having fled after Troy fell to the Greeks, our hero embarks on a journey to plant a city for his son and future generations. In the process, we learn that Aeneas is a good man because he has developed pietas, gravitas, and auctoritas. In this episode, we’ll talk about what those virtues are and why they’re central to understanding masculinity.
