To Analyze Roman Society under Augustus

Please answer ONE of the following questions:

Compare the “Res Gestae Divi Augusti” to the “Lives of the Twelve Caesars” (source 6.3). How is the power of the emperors portrayed? Are there significant differences from Augustus to Caligula or Claudius?

Compare how Augustus portrays power over his religiously diverse empire to the same authority displayed in the letters from Pliny the Younger to Trajan. How do the two emperors address their authority over religious matters? Are they the same or are their approaches different? Why do you think this?
