Storyboard Text

  • Patricians & Plebians
  • Centuriate assembly, Roman senate & Roman republic
  • Augustus
  • The Patricians were large land owners and the Plebeians were much smaller land owners. Plebeians were stuck on a lower level because they were looked down upon, there children could not marry patricians. They looked after the Republic
  • Laws of Rome
  • The roman senate had a very important role,  it had the force of law and it was made up of about 300 major land owners. The centuriate assembly elects the chief officials and passed laws.  All males were created equal and the republic did not change to democracy.
  • Jesus
  • Under Augustus, Rome found a lengthy period of peace and prosperity, trade flourished, provinces ruled in an orderly fashion, but there was an enormous gulf between the rich and poor.
  • Roman beliefs
  • The first code of laws or the twelve tables binded the plebeians and patricians. It was a simple product from the farming society. It was proved inadequate for later roman needs. The law on nations was a universal law based on reason. 2 principles of the law of nations we see today are that people are innocent till proven guilty and anyone accused was allowed to talk for themselves in front of the jury. 
  • Jesus voiced Christianity. 2 main teachings he talked were the transformation of the inner person and to love god & one another. Constantine & Theodus the great opened the door vastly for christianity. The 2 christian beliefs that could cause a major dilemma was the emphasis on the individual conscience and the emphasis on the public.
  • (From left to right: Zeus, Hera, Ares, Athena) The romans tolerated other religions as long as they did ot threaten public morals or public order.
