Marcus Annius Verus was born in Rome, A. D. 121, and assumed the
name of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, by which he is known to history, on
his adoption by the Emperor T. Aurelius Antoninus. M. Aurelius was
educated by the orator Fronto, but turned aside from rhetoric to the
study of the Stoic philosophy, of which he was the last distinguished
representative. The "Meditations," which he wrote in Greek,
are among the most noteworthy expressions of this system, and exhibit it
favorably on its practical side. The "Meditations" picture
with faithfulness the mind and character of this noblest of the
Emperors. Simple in style and sincere in tone, they record for all time
the height reached by pagan aspiration in its effort to solve the
problem of conduct; and the essential agreement of his practice with his
teaching proved that "Even in a palace life may be led
well."
