In the Roman Empire, Christianity started out being a very minuscule religion. However, as Christianity grew, it formed into a significant threat to Roman politics. Before Christianity, the Roman Empire was extremely diverse and they believed the emperor
Some historians claim that there are as many as a hundred political and non-political interweaving reasons that led to the collapse of Roman Empire. One of the important political causes is the division of the Empire into two empires, the west (Latin) and the eastern (Greek, later known as the Byzantine empire) in 284 A.D. by Diocletian. This division was adopted to protect the over-expanding empire and to defend its borders against the Barbarian attacks. This was achieved initially as the two empires synchronized responsibilities and strengthened each. However, over successive years, there were religious and linguistic barriers that prevented further cooperation and inhibited any trials for re-union.
The Roman Empire was a large, powerful, and successful empire that stood the test of time. But, Rome was plagued with numerous problems that caused its demise. In my opinion, the fall of the Roman Empire was inevitable. This is because Rome had a corrupt government that failed to satisfy its citizens, and Diocletian’s retirement caused the tetrarchy, which could have been Rome’s last saving grace, to fail. The Roman Empire had a largely corrupt government, which mismanaged the itself into a collapse.
The first significant events that eventually led to the rise of this great empire started during the reign of Rudolph I, the Count of Habsburg. In 1273, Rudolph I was elected Holy Roman Emperor and in 1278, he “fought for and won the archduchy of Austria and the lands around Vienna” (Pelling 2). Over the many periods of its existence, the Habsburgs built a huge empire “covering about
He knew how strong Grendel was, attacking the Heorot for 12 winter straights but he still went to help the Danes. Finally Grendel was confident while fighting Grendel because he made a deal, if Grendel doesn't use weapons he wouldn't either. These traits were also showed in Siegmund, another great hero and leader in Scandinavian. He also portrayed all of these characteristics
Not every person who declaims a speech is the best public speaker. For thousands of years, the oration has known where the political leaders have used to address their countries’ citizens, and Winston Churchill, who was the sharp Prime Minister of the Great Britain through his famous speech “The Finest Hour1,” became the model for speeches in the modern policy. His speech “Their Finest Hour” was apparent and describes the phases that the Great Britain passed during the World War II from the weakness in front of the Nazi Germany with Adolph Hitler to adjust the progress of the battles and achieve the desired victory. Moreover, he succeeded in stopping the attacks in the British cities, especially London to the shore and the sea cooperating with
The goals the Britain were trying to accomplish were numerous and so were unclear. Myths about the true motives of the declaration still swirl but, historians focus on the diplomatic and political motives behind the declaration. It is very important to note that soon after the declaration, on December 9th 1917, Britain captured Jerusalem. This ended a nearly 400-year rule by the ottoman empire. They were later granted the league of nation mandate for the control of Palestine in 1920.
In 312 AD, he entered Rome as the new emperor of the Western empire, then taking control of the Eastern empire in 324 AD. The cities in the Western empire were smaller and less prosperous and with the geographical location, it was located farther away from trade routes that provided goods and wealth. The Western cities were more exposed to attacks from invaders, who were the Barbarians. The Barbarians were people who looked for goods and citizens to kidnap who would them be sold as slaves. As the Barbarians were getting stronger, defense forces on the north and northeast borders became weaker.
Some of the reason are, that the Romans was suffered by consistent attacks, had endured civil wars, had corruption in government, a change in religion and leader who did not make decisions for the better. The fall of this dominate force shock the world in the time and led to a period called the dark ages. A main person that has a huge impact in the fall of Rome was Diocletian. Even though Diocletian ruled over a hundred years before the fall of Rome he still had a huge impact on its fall. Diocletian caused Rome to split in two and in doing so had to create a bigger military this costs a lot of money, and therefore taxes had to be raised, this caused inflation, then that caused prices to go up.
Historians believe that one major reason for this was that the American Revolution showed that Britain could be defeated on the battlefield and at sea.. Without the hammer that Britain could raise as a threat, it could no longer simply dominate negotiations with enemy forces. At the same time, Britain's shipping was vulnerable because of the amount of merchant ships converted into war ships; loss of colonies decreased production. This exposed the jugular of Britain, to be very nearly ripped out by Napoleon less than a decade later. The amount of respect the Britain lost by losing a civil war was enormous and resulted in a weakened position at the negotiating
