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."
