Storyboard Text

  • Government
  • You have no rights at all mwahahaha. I can vote but you have to work in my fields all day.
  • It is unfair that I have no say in what goes on in my own country's republic because I am a pleban! 
  • Government
  • We are going to declare war on Egypt because that is what the people of my country want.
  • But sir, as an assembly member I believe you should take caution with your endeavors.
  • Law
  • The Twelve tables have become insufficient due to the growth of our society! We need to put into place something more applicable that can grow with our large society.
  • I propose a new law system, The Laws of Nations. 
  • In the Roman Republic the Plebans, otherwise known as the poor were not given the same rights as the Patricians who were wealthy land owners. Only the wealthy were allowed to participate in the government. They could be praetors and consul members but the poor couldn't even have a say.
  • Law
  • In Rome, their government was a Republic where their leader wasn't a monarch and only certain citizens had the right to vote. The chief officials of the Roman government were the consuls and praetors who ran the government, army and the civil law. The senate advised these individuals and was made up of wealthy patricians.
  • Religion
  • The first code of laws in Rome were the Twelve Tables, and was adopted in 450 B.C. It became inadequate for Romes needs overtime and they adopted a new set of laws, called the Laws of Nations and they were much more sophisticated system of laws applying only to Roman citizens.
  • Religion
  • People in Ancient Rome were considered innocent until proven guilty. This concept, also referred to as the presumption of innocence, is a basis for many of the western world 's democratic countries' criminal law procedures.  They extended citizenship to all people that they ruled. 
  • They don't have any proof that I stole the bread so I'm home free!!
  • The people of Ancient Rome were polytheistic, and believed in numerous gods. Unlike them the Christians were monotheistic, believing in only one God. This caused controversy as Christianity began to rise. Another difference in the two religions was that Jesus preached that strict adherence to the law wasn't important but loving others was while the Romans believed that Following the laws was very important.
  • I'm the only god Jesus Christ.
  • You can believe in any god you want just don't interfere with the order of  the public.
  • The Romans tolerated other religions as long as they didn't interfere with their own public order, such as Christianity did. The Christians refused to participate in public pagan rituals that worshiped the roman gods and the emperor. The Romans viewed this as treason.
  • Don't worry I'm not going to participate in your public meetings.
