Jesus’ followers Peter and Paul Came to Rome and shared his teachings.
Christians in the Roman Empire were constantly executed in Circus Maximus where they had to battle lions.
Citizens of Rome were impressed with the faith of the martyrs, or people who died for their beliefs, that they converted to Christianity in large numbers and Rome’s attempts at eliminating Christians failed.
In 313 A.D. Emperor Constantine ended the persecution of Christians and by 395A.D. Christianity was declared the official religion of the Roman Empire and spread rapidly.
Rome had one of the most finest and well trained armies.
Soldiers were treated so nicely because they were the ones who expanded the empire and kept the city safe.
They were paid so well to ensure their loyalty to the empire.
Soldiers had the most authority in the empire besides the Senate or the emperor.
What I think is the most important aspects of the Roman Empire.
I think that the most important aspects of the Roman Empire are their achievements.
As said in my slide show there are many achievements including some that we are still using today. Examples of these are some of their laws. Many of these are what our judges judge by today. Another example are the aqueducts. Although we don’t call them that they are still one of the most important achievements. Today we call them pipes and they are made out of metal instead of stone and they are a lot more cleaner and smaller.
Another great achievement is the army. They came up with many ideas and strategies that our armies today use too. The apartment complexes that the poor people used to live in are now the design of complexes everyone wants to live in even the rich.
As you can see achievements were the most important aspects of the Roman culture and of ours today.
