Absolutism meant prosperity because monarchs were considered gods (or God 's power on earth), they changed countries for the better, and could be liked by the people for not doing everything in a harsh way. To many, monarchs were God 's form on earth. King James I of England said that "The state of monarchy is the supreme thing upon earth; for kings are not only God’s lieutenants on earth, and sit upon God’s throne, but even by God Himself they are called gods..." (Document 2). Like King James I, people believed monarchs were needed because they had power like God. Kings and Queens were essential and brought goodness to the land.
Classical heroes were characters who were courageous and act not only for themselves but for others. They were modest leaders who cared for their people and empire. These heroes encouraged their men to be the greatest they can be and conquered land together. Roman heroes did not care if they were remembered nor if they were admired, all they cared for is the state. They wanted their state to great and live on for years.
The fall and disintegration of the great Assyrian empire, and its culture which was prominent for more than two centuries also added to this transition. The power in the new system was with newly formed Babylonian empire, headed by the Chaldean rule whose top renowned ruler was Nebuchadrezzar. Jeremiah kept on saying about the importance of repentance than most other prominent prophets. He asked people to move away from doing evil practices and worshipping idols and fake gods. He preached them to return and to be loyal to Yahweh the real
Islam was not intended for a particular social or ethnic group, so anyone could join the religion to become a believer. As seen before with Assyrian and Persian empires, “You catch more bees with honey than vinegar.” The difference between the Assyrian’s heavy, militaristic rule and the compassion of the Persians led to Persia surviving longer. The empire’s system of conquering and not forcing Islam on residents made them a more attractive kingdom to be ruled under. Because of this the caliphate expanded and the rule eventually turned from the Umayyads to the Abbasids. With the Abbasids came economic prosperity.

Ashoka was not only an able ruler but also brought along the quality of social justice to his already strong administration. Ashoka embraced Buddhism after the bloody conquest of kalinga (modern day Orissa) because he felt a sense of remorse. Thereafter tolerance,compassion, reverence for life and peaceful co-existence were the cornerstones of his administration. Under him the earliest bans on slavery and capital punishment came into place along with environmental regulations as well. King Ashoka made a lot of effort to spread Buddhism not only across his kingdom but also outside his Kingdom.
This system united the civil and military areas of the Empire into a powerful force that could once again stand up to its enemies. This new system offered land to soldiers and facilitated the spread of military might across the Empire. Heraclius’s most impressive achievement was his military successes against the powerful Sassanid Persian Empire, which threatened the Byzantine territory. Thanks to a strong navy and Constantinople’s nearly impenetrable walls, he kept the Sassanids from taking Constantinople. This also kept the Persians from attempting another conquest of Greece, as Persian kings Darius and Xerxes had tried to do over a thousand years before.
They would express any kind of view for their gods, without having to adhere to a certain cult. Due to that fact, pagans could accept a new worship without changing or forgetting their old once . Christians, on the other hand, had a structured religion and because it was monotheistic, they would not accept any other heretic religion. To clarify, pagan gods never demanded exclusive faith, but the Christian God asks for it. Also, pagans cannot prove that there is a hereafter life; but Christians have the faith and the courage that there is an afterlife, much happier and fruitful for those who will enter Heaven and will be next to God.
Genghis Khan, their most famous leader, led them not just to victory, but also assisted in the development of our world. The Mongols could be titled as a civilized nation because of their time of tranquility called Pax Mongolica, Genghis Khan’s religious tolerance, and their ingenious military
He believed everyone could live peacefully. This resulted in a community truce. But after Gandhi pasted, the truce broke and changed to India and Pakistan. “Great Soul” is a celebratory name everyone should want. Mahatma means “Great Soul” and that’s why Gandhi earned that name.
He would accept any person who was persecuted from other religions to live in a colony where a certain belief wasn’t required. To also learn that Penn was one of the most successful governors to keep peace with the Native American tribes instead of finding ways to annihilate them was also intriguing to learn. In my opinion, I believe he was one of the first people to have an open mind and a change of perspective about certain things just only because he opened his arms to anyone whether it was single people, family or anyone who wanted religious freedom. I enjoyed looking over this topic and being able to go more in depth of the accomplishments William Penn did for this British
The Pax Romana or Roman peace was introduced by Augustus. The Pax Romana made the Roman empire the most safe, beautiful, clean, organized and powerful as possible. He used his experience as soldier coupled with political skills to restore order and prosperity in Rome when he came into power. Augustus restored peace after 100 years of civil war in ancient Rome. He also maintained an honest government and a sound currency system, extended the highway system, developed an efficient postal service, fostered free trade among the provinces, and built many bridges, aqueducts and buildings adorned with beautiful works of art.
They all had an option to be set free if they stated that they were not Christian but none of them did. They all died for their belief in the religion after being offered a way out. (Doc G) This information helps explain why the Christian religion took hold in ancient world. People that followed the Christian religion were open to helping anyone in need and would even take them into their homes. The people who followed the Christian religion found its message so important that they would die rather than proclaim that they were not a follower of the Christian religion.
Before 300 CE, Rome was polytheistic, believed in multiple gods. Being polytheistic was a benefit because of all the cultural diffusion in their large area and grand population. The supernatural world is very significant in the roman cultural belief system.Then in 300 CE, Romans adopted Christianity as their religion. Before hand, christians were executed and lowered ranked, when Christianity was not their main religion. Romans changed their minds because when Constantine was ruler he promised Jesus and his mother “If you will give me victory in this battle, then I will officially become a Christian.” He won the battle and fulfilled his promise.
