Even though Ancient Rome adapted to Ancient Greece laws and rules, Ancient Rome wrote in Latin to create their own literature. Satirize was used to make fun of Ancient Rome society. Roads, bridges, and tunnels were all advanced in Ancient Rome. Astronomy became large after a roman scientist named Ptolemy discovered that the earth was the center of the universe. Ancient Greece contributions helped the Western Society today.
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. From 284 to 305 CE, Diocletian ruled as emperor of the Eastern Empire. Diocletian “appointed three men to share his rule” creating a tetrarchy government to provide more effectual governance over the empire by balancing authority and territory. He convened for Lactantius, master of Latin rhetoric, to teach rhetoric at the imperial government and to manage the “Latinity of the imperial court’s official documents;” thus making Lactantius an important eyewitness to Diocletian’s reign. According to Lactantius’s On the Deaths of the Persecutors, in February 303 CE, Diocletian launched the last persecution of Christians which denied Christians of all legal rights.
The ancient Greece Olympics were more individual than team events. The Greeks regarded the winners of the Olympic Games as heroes, crowning them with wreaths of olive branches and holding parades in their honour. Some cities even excused outstanding athletes from having to pay their taxes. The ancient Olympic Games really were special events to the Greeks (Farah and Karls 120). The reasons for why the Olympic Games are held have changed since they first began.
The Western Civilization in its more strictly defined spheres traces its roots to Classical Greece, the Roman Empire, Ancient Israel, and the Germanic, Celtic, and Slavic cultures. The question remains whether the development of this civilization was beneficial or not to the growth of other cultures. No change is without detriment, but it is my opinion that the development of the Western Civilization was beneficial to other cultures, and in the following paragraphs I will support my belief. Every advance, difference, or extension of an idea comes from somewhere else. As is the case for most modern day scientific advances, as they found their beginning in Egypt and Mesopotamia over five thousand years ago.
Values of Western culture have, throughout history, been derived from political thought, widespread employment of rational argument favouring freethought, assimilation of human rights, the need for equality, and democracy.  Historical records of Western culture in Europe begin with Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Western culture continued to develop with Christianization during the Middle Ages, the reform and modernization triggered by the Renaissance, and with globalization by successive European empires, that spread European ways of life and European educational methods around the world between the 16th and 20th centuries.  European culture developed with a complex range of philosophy, medieval
Adam Schilling August 7th, 2012 Classical Mythology Dr. Evers Imitation; The Finest Expression of Flattery The impact the Christian religion has had on world history is profound. Looking back through the ages, this certainly seems true; but what happens when you look farther back? Thousands of years before Christ, the Greeks held religion in a high regard. The Greeks wove countless cultural influences into a coherent, if slightly chaotic, pantheon of Gods and Goddesses. Along with the Gods came tales of their exploits, so the Greeks began constructing patterns and archetypes that were essentially original and organic to the time; stories of creation, conception, and the failings of man.
Both of these epics have significantly influenced ancient and modern culture; have inspired a great number of poets, writers and artists to create new masterpieces. Both epics have survived through thousands of years, were first passed from generation to generation by oral traditions, and then were presented in written form. Both of these works of literature consist of several parts (tablets in Gilgamesh epic and books in the Odysseus epic). Finally, both of these epics are usually considered to be composed by male authors and for male society. However, at closer consideration the conclusions may be different.
In our civil society today, there are many, many different kinds of cultures that each person lives in every day. Some of those cultures include a “Western Civilization Culture.” In this type of culture, these people are very interested in religion (especially Christianity), artistic, philosophic, literary, and legal themes and traditions. The many heritages that practice this culture include Latin, Celtic, Germanic, and Hellenic ethic or linguistic groups. These religions that practice this western civilization culture help our understanding of how the western culture was hundreds of years ago. In conclusion, the western civilization people from the past hundreds of years have made a huge impact on our society today and the way things are done in our life.
Analyze the impact of the greeks, from the Hellenic age to Alexander, on Western Civilization. Ancient Greece enveloped an island that separated the Aegean and Ionian seas, neighboring islands and the western coast of Turkey. Greece reached it’s pinnacle of accomplishments during the fourth and fifth centuries B.C., but even after that, their accomplishments continued to apply cultural influence even after it fell under Rome. The society in Greece inspired achievements that helped build the foundation of civilization in the West. Greeks were sensible, smart, bold, and vigorous.
Such contacts promote widespread sharing of cultures. I agree that Western domination of the worldwide mass media is a huge influence the West has on many different cultures today. However, Western influence on the rest of the world’s cultures is actually rooted in the 19th century. Western domination of areas all over the globe left behind a legacy of Western customs and ideas. Western languages are spoken throughout the world, mainly because of Europe’s history of colonization in the Americas, Asia, and Africa.
