  • Government 
  • haha- we are the wealthy patricians! those poor plebians have nothing on us! 
  • Government: citizens equal under law
  • Finally! We have some voice in the law! We'll be called Council of Plebs!
  • Law: principles of the law of nations
  • technically you're still innocent until proven otherwise...
  • I didn't do it! I plead innocent! 
  • yay
  • The Roman Empire had two classes- the wealthy landowning patricians, and the poor plebeians, which was the majority of the empire.  This two social classes are mostly likely was cause the Roman Empire to have a republic form of government. Where "all citizens" are equal, but in reality it was only the patricians who had a voice in their government. 
  • Law
  • finally! some peace1 thank you augustus! 
  • In 471 BC, the plebeians took a huge leap forward when they finally got some more equality, and got created a spot in the government. they were the counsel of the plebeians. Although all citizens were equal, it was still a republic type government, so the rulling familes were patricians and few plebeians. 
  • Religion: preaching his fellow Christians
  • As my father says, love one another. Transform your inner self, don't be strict on following the laws
  • When the Romans developed the Twelve tables, they realized that these laws could not be applied to citizens of other nations, thus creating the laws of nations. These laws are still used today by the U.S. ; people are innocent until otherwise proven, and we are allowed to defend ourselves in court before the judge and jury
  • Religion: the need for a compromise
  • your religion is allowed, as long as you honor the roman gods too
  • the pax romana was a time period Rome experienced where all was peaceful and flourishing- thanks to Augustus. We can infer that there was no conflict between the two social groups, since everything in Rome during this time frame ran smoothly.
  • Once Jesus began preaching what his father told him, he drew the attention of many Roman citizens. Now we already know that the romans were not ok with Christianity because of its refusal to honor Roman Gods, but since we see that Christianity was converting many Roman citizens because  of all it had to offer, we can infer that it was hard for the Roman empire to put a stop to Christianity. 
  • hey, I like this religion!
  • I think I'll switch to Christianity
  • As long as Roman citizens honored the Roman Gods in addition to their own religion, their religion was accepted in the Roman Empire. But the Christians refused to take part in the ceremonies that where for the Roman Gods, and this was not acceptable. 
  • WHAT?! NO! We only believe in Jesus!
