Why was Julius Caesar assassinated

Julius Caesar was assassinated because he had acquired too much power and showed no signs of relinquishing any of it. His popularity with the people made him a threat to the power of the Roman senators, who feared he would end the republic and assume sole power. His killers included the senators who opposed his policies.

  • It gave the hope to the poor
  • It favored earthly riches because in the past religions you were not allowed to have riches you were to sacrifice them to your god but Jesus said you can have them because God will make you prosperous
  • The love, selflessness, and compassion that Christians showed to everyone around them even when they were being persecuted.
  • The belief of the truth and the spiritual hunger.
How did Christianity contribute to the fall of the Roman Empire

Christianity did not contribute to the fall of the western part of the Roman Empire. Some pagan Romans believed that it weakened the Romans by weakening their fighting spirit. This was untrue and this view reflected their dislike for and bias against Christianity. The Christian emperors of the later Empire were as resolute in trying to defend the Roman Empire as the previous pagan emperors had been.

The co-emperors Gratian and, especially, Theodosius I (or the Great) aimed at religious uniformity. Their Edict of Thessalonica (380) made mainstream Christianity the sole legitimate religion of the empire and banned dissident Christian doctrines, which were branded heretic. The main target was Arian Christianity which was the main dissident Christian doctrine and was popular around the empire. Theodosius immediately started persecuting the Arians. He also persecuted Roman religion and other pagan creeds, particularly Manichaeism which was briefly the main rival to Christianity in the competition to replace classical paganism.

Theodosius promoted greater religious uniformity in the Roman Empire and, through this, greater cohesion. The western part of the Roman Empire fell under the weight of the invasions by the Germanic peoples. The Germanic invaders were also Christians even though they had been converted to the Arian form of Christianity, The eastern part of the Roman Empire, which was just as Christian as the western part, was not affected by these invasions and continued to exist for nearly 1,000 years.

Mainstream Christianity was 'Western or Latin Christianity' and 'Eastern or Greek Christianity.' The former was the main form of Christianity in the western part of the Roman Empire and the latter the main form in the eastern part. Later they came to be called Catholic and Orthodox respectively.

How was Roman art different from Greek art

The Romans greatly admired the art and architecture of Greece, as well as many of their ideas. Roman art is not really the same as Greek art, but the Romans did copy the Greeks. One notable copy is the column. The Greeks used solid marble 'drums' to build their columns, the Romans built theirs with brick, faced with cement to resemble the Greek columns.

.Roman art is more naturalistic and less stylized then Greek art. Greeks were most interested in idealism

Romans were more interested in realism.

In what way was Roman law a civil law system

(Note: If you have a truly valid addition, add it, but do not change or subtract the current answer.)

There are three basic types of law:

Civil Law - that which relies on a codification of law in writing rather than judicial precedent

Common Law - that which relies on precedents of previous decisions of judges based on historic customs.

Criminal Law - that which operates on legislated prohibitions of certain conduct.

Originally Roman law was unwritten, which gave the aristocracy, the custodians of it, a decisive edge which, allied to their being also custodians of the state religion, gave them enormous power to control the populace. Agitation led to a codification called the Twelve Tables. This was followed over the centuries by codifications of additional laws by eminent jurists, essentially the process of conversion from customary (Common) law to civil law. The process was virtually completed by the 4th Century CE.

Today's Civil Law rests on the Roman precedents with later developments over 1,500 years, just as the the Roman Civil Law developed over a thousand years.
