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.
Aspects of Christianity that caused it to spread quickly are:
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.
Crop failures occurred.
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.
