Caesar would later destroy what was left of the republic. Over the years as an empire, the political system appeared to be a ball and chain to the public. “ The political office was seen as a hardship, not an asset to the public. There was nearly constant warfare among the Roman leaders themselves in the century leading up to 31 B.C., when the Roman Empire was established. One of the most difficult problems was choosing a new emperor.
This can be argued was to do with this battle because Valen lost two thirds of his army. It also showed that the Roman legions were no match for the heavy cavalry which many empires started to recruit. This then led to the Middle Ages and knights. The weakness of the Roman legionaries was showed again in 410 in the sacking of Rome. This was seen as another step towards the fall of the Roman Empire because this defeat was inevitable after the defeat
The Roman Empire was a dominant power driven by leaders who transformed the Roman world. From 300 to 800 CE, religion ranged from monasticism to Christianity while the government varied from a tetrarchy to a diarchy and to a monarchy. Some rulers governed the province by controlling the relationship between religion and the state, while other rulers only moderately regulated the relationship between religion and state. However, both ways of governing had positive and negative impacts on the transformation of the Roman world. By examining the various primary sources, lecture notes, and textbook, I conclude that the Roman world was transformed by the way people understood the relationship between religion and the state during this period because each leader believed in a different way to bring success and dominance over Western Europe causing Christianity to evolve in the Roman Empire.
The role the military played in the expansion of Christianity differed from that of Islam. Christianity and Islam both made use of syncretism in the expansion of their religions. Christianity was influenced by much of Imperial Rome’s governmental structure and used the leadership of the bishop of Rome, called the pope. The celebration of Christ’s birth was moved to coincide with the winter solstice. This allowed the new faith to benefit from the power of selective older rituals and gave them remarkable strength and power.
Centuries after the Rise of Rome and their extraordinary historical achievements, was their collapse. This was caused by the combination of numerous political, economic and social factors or otherwise known as the P.E.S. These problems included corruptions in both the military and resource productions, and of course their continuous failed attempts of expanding their empire resulting in others and even their own society to turn and rebel against them. Political factors involve people and organizations with such power, these include powerful emperors, leaders and empires. Although if people with such power are unable to maintain control, their society usually collapses and resolves in chaos.
• The situation in Rome toward the end of the Republican period was that the country’s senate had lost majority of its power. The senate had become corrupt, divided and inefficient due to the powerful generals who commanded legions and extorted Rome. • Octavian’s rise to power and the establishment of the Augustan principate became a reality due to many factors, tactics and challenges conquered by the now great historical figure and leader. The impact of Caesar’s death, the formation of the Second Triumvirate, the settlements of 27BC and 23BC as well as Octavian’s manipulation, powers and titles in the new form of government all contributed to the result of Octavian’s power and influence over Rome. Body: • The impacts of Caesar’s death on Octavian were the Senate’s arrangement and his inheritance.
Weaknesses of the constitution The republic was always associated with defeat and the Treaty of Versailles. The high number of parties meant that decisions were often difficult to take – too many of these parties wanted to destroy the republic. The powers of the President allowed him to be become a dictator if he wished. If the states wanted to overthrow the Federal government they could. The Treaty of Versailles.
As religion was an important thing in the middle ages I will try to find out if there were any religious motives to the battle or important religious figures that benefited from the outcome. Such as the Churches support in mass scale to one particular leader to benefit themselves. Since the Battle of Hastings was such an important turn of events in the middle ages, I hope to find evidence that some of the same battle tactic and weapons were used in later wars. I also hope to prove that due to this battle the western world was able to advance and over time lead to the discovery of the new world. Hopeful I will find more documents on accounts of the everyday person and how they felt about the battle and the after effects, such as if there were any major changes in the social system.
There was lot of internal politics in Ancient Rome. Patrician families would seize all the public land for their own use, driving many small landowners into debt. The plebeians were constantly fighting for a greater say in the government, and finally, the first plebeian consuls were elected in 366 B.C. However, the patricians continued to control the Senate, sometimes taking ambitious plebeians into their ranks to achieve their aims. During the time of the Roman Republic, there was constant struggle between the rich patrician aristocracy and the plebeians who ranged from jobless laborers to wealthy landowners who did not belong to the noble class.
The Pope’s power and influence grew immensely over the next few centuries and eventually claimed power of the monarchies. Christianity slowly spread across the Empire. Under the reign of Emperor Constantine, the church began to become more organized and politically centered. Constantine used the Bishops to help preserve the laws and impose justice throughout the crumbling Empire. As the
