The specifically Roman deities adapted from the Greek original such as Zeus, were the Capitoline triad of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. Jupiter was the overall protector of the state, Juno was the protector of women, and Minerva was the patroness of workers. The evidence from Pompeii indicates that these gods had become the most important at least on a state level, in Pompeii before the earthquake in recognition of the strong Romanisation of the town after the Sullan colonisation. Venus (adapted from Aphrodite) was also a deity with special Roman connections as she was the protectoress of Sulla who established the Colonia Veneria in honour of her in his conquest of Pompeii. "Vote for me and Venus Pompeiana will bring you
Livy’s narration can be seen as important to our understanding of Roman Literature in that it gives an understanding of the background of Rome beginning from its foundation. Livy begins his narration by stating that Rome was founded by the twins Remus and Romulus who were the children of Rhea and the god of war mars. They founded Rome in 753 B.C. these two quarrelled about the city boundaries and eventually Remus was killed by Romulus became the first king of Rome. This belief that they were descended from a god according to legend gave them justification of their right to rule and eventually this divine ancestry that they believed they came from gave them justification to conquer other nations.
Aristotle’s Prime mover: A) Explain Aristotle`s concept of a Prime Mover  Aristotle was a Greek philosopher who lived around the time of 384 BC – 322 BC. He was a student of Plato’s; however, there are differences in their beliefs. He was also tutor of the Ruler of Macedon‘s son Alexander; who later became Alexander the Great, one of the most successful commanders in history. Along with Socrates and Plato, Aristotle was a major influence on western philosophy as it is today. One of the key differences between Plato and Aristotle’s philosophies are beliefs about the ‘creation of a form.’ Plato believed in a demiurge – a figure that shaped a form from matter that already existed, so not in itself a creator, but a force that molded a form into shape.
The Historical Criticism The Sand Reckoner by Gillian Bradshaw is a book that gives us a great view of the life and culture of the Greek in early times. Bradshaw’s book the Sand Reckoners main character is Archimedes, and Bradshaw creates a narrative that fits best with the accurate facts we know about him. Archimedes used mathematics and physics to create War Machines to help the Greece in war against Italy. Archimedes isn’t just known for his war machines but he also created another machine called the Water Snail. In his name the Water Snail is also known as the “Archimedes Snail”.
It is said by Plutarch that Miltiades enjoyed the highest prestige from the battle, and this would have increased Athenian reputation among the Greek states (it is important to note that one factor of the formation of e empire was that the Ionian States chose Athens), and would thus have made them more inclined to choose Athens as the hegemon, and allowing them to create their empire. Pausanius also played an influential role in the formation of the Athenian Empire; however it was through his negative actions and behaviour that this came to be. Pausanius was the Spartan
The argument stated in Source 6.3 is that the Parthenon marbles have been in the British Museum for much longer than where they stood originally in Greece. The source also shows examples that they have become a part of Britain’s heritage and have been centred focus for the European culture and civilization for people’s admiration in the culture of Greece. What, in your opinion is the strongest argument presented by each source? Which is the weakest argument in each case? The strongest argument presented is source 6.2 because it shows you why they should come back to Greece and what will happen when the sculptures have been returned back to Greece.
The Ancient Greeks continue to influence our lives today in three prominent ways: architecture, politics, and medicine. In present day, Western architecture owes a heavy debt to the classical styles of Ancient Greece. Ancient Greeks started building temples of worship to their gods at about 600 B.C. One defining feature in these temples was the distinctive column styles known as Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. These can be most easily defined and identified by each column’s capital.
The reason for the choice is that Brutus has a high standing in the Roman society, and the people are more likely to listen to what he says. In Act 1 Scene II, Cassius tries to find out Brutus’ position with regard to the rising power of Caesar. When he concludes that Brutus does not like the dictatorship, he talks highly of Brutus and his ancestors with a view to enlist his co-operation for the venture. At the end of the discussion, which shows signs of Brutus’ wish to support the work to be undertaken, and after he leaves the scene, this is what Cassius says to himself: “Well, Brutus, thou art noble;”. Act I Scene II Mark Antony too confirms this opinion about Brutus when he says: “That Nature might stand up and say “‘This was a man!’”.
Brutus also declares to himself that his role in the conspiracy is to save Rome. He says to the people that, "If then that friend demand why Brutus rose against Caesar, this is my answer: not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more Since Brutus "...loved Rome more. "(Act 3,scene2, ll.23-24), he decided to be a part
According to nationalparkservice.gov, “The Washington Monument towers above the city that bears his name, serving as an awe-inspiring reminder of George Washington's greatness”. In contrast, there is another architecture that is common with the ancient Romans which is the Lincoln Memorial. The exterior of the memorial has a peristyle which was used centuries ago from Pompeii to England. Today you may see many building with this same type style, but modern days we recognize it as pillars. According to abrahamlincolnonline.org, “New York architect Henry Bacon modeled the memorial in the style of a Greek temple.
