Storyboard Text

  • Rome is a republic which is split into 3 parts, Consuls Praetors, and The Assembly.
  • The Consuls were in charge of the Roman Army, and the Praetors were in charge of the Civil Law.
  • The chief officers were the Consuls and the Praetors.
  • The Consuls were in charge of the Roman army.
  • The Praetors were in charge of the civil law.
  • The law of nations applied to every citizen and was identified as natural law and universal law based on reason.
  • For example, a person was regarded innocent until proved otherwise. People who were accused of wrongdoing were allowed to defend.
  • The Patricians were the more wealthy and had more rights than the Plebeians did.
  • The ancient roman republic was divided into two groups,  The Patricians and the Plebeians
  • Romes first code of laws was the Twelve Tables. It proved inadequate for later Roman needs. It applies to patricians, praetors and consuls.
  • The Plebeians were considered as the poor and did not have the right to be elected to office.
  • Constantine and Theodosius opened up the door for Christianity for everyone. The ethical concepts Jesus voiced are humility, charity and love towards each other.
  • Jesus's preaching was Gods command to love each other.
  • Though it was thought that Christianity fulfilled every human need for everyone, but the Christian view believed in only one god. This caused tension.
  • Also the Romans persecuted Christianity because they felt that the Christians endangered their cities and the whole Roman state by refusing to give the gods their sacrifices. They also feared that the Christians were traitors, since they did not worship the emperor and met in secret. There were also a variety of rumors about strange Christian behavior.
  • Christianity was the dominant religion when Constantine made it legal though he banned the worship of other gods.
