ALEXANDER SEVERUS

ALEXANDER SEVERUS 208235. Son of Julia Mammaea, associated in power with his cousin Heliogabalus, and left as sole emperor in 222 at approx. 14 years of age. He governed at first under the tutelage of his mother and with the help of a council of senators, including the jurist Ulpian. He gave precendence to civil power over the military, earning him the increasing hostility of the troops: in 235 he was assassinated by soldiers during a campaign defending the Rhine-Danube frontier. Alexander treated Christians benevolently: he even had several in his court and was a friend of Sextus Julius Africanus, who dedicated his Intarsi kestoi, to him. The Historia Augusta SHA, Vita Alex., passim tells us that he venerated a number of divinities, including Christ, in his lararium.Egypt Picture – Portrait of Severus Alexander travelquaz
