I used to be a regular listener of "The Latin Lover" on Vatican Radio and in one of my favorite episodes former papal latinist Father Reginald Foster (with whose opinions I am certainly not always in agreement) was asked about the much-maligned Roman Emperor Tiberius. On this point I agree with Father Foster who defended the Caesar at the time of Christ as "a hard man". I was very glad to see that these old shows have been collected and saved. For an informative and entertaining look back at Rome's second Emperor listen to Father Foster on Tiberius.
