The Roman Empire reached its peak in 117 AD under Augustus Caesar and he took a special interest in developing the language. With the rise of Christianity and the Pax Romana, Latin influence grew. Classical Latin was used to write historical records and literature like epics and oratories. As the language spread over bigger areas, regional differences in pronunciation was

Regardless of what his motive was this was a big deal for several Christians living in Europe at this time.

The Assyrians formed militarism, had an empire reach from Persian gulf to the Nile river, and this lead to the first universal empired formed. The Persians spanned countless lands from Persian gulf to Nile river, and started a new language for people. Some might ask what’s the relevance of the Western Civilization towards religion ? In my opinion it plays a big role because churches lead to social service. This brings Art, Philosophy and science into the civilization.
Aside from creating new monuments, Ramses II also found ways to insert his name into existing structures. He supposedly ordered that the smallest repair in a building had to include his inscription, and he renovated ancient temples to ensure that they would reflect his image and encourage people to pay homage to his divine power. These actions prompted many historians to call him an ancient graffiti artist. Ramses II didn't stop at building new structures, though; during his reign, he successfully moved the capital from to a new place he called Pi-Ramesses Aa-nakhtu, which was near Canaan and Syria. There, he erected his residential palace and filled the land with large temples.
Charlemagne was also known as Charles the Great. He was king of the Franks and he united the majority of Western Europe during the early Middle Ages. On top of that, he laid the foundations for modern France and Germany. He attempted to unite all Germanic peoples into one kingdom and convert his subjects to Christianity. Being a skilled military strategist, he spent much of his reign in warfare so that he could manage to accomplish his goals.
One of the most important factors in helping Rome thrive as a city, and gain government power throughout Italy was the way in which they treated the outlying Latium towns. In order for Rome to expand their power, they needed to expand their land. Because the Latin towns had a treaty, made by Spurius Cassius, with the neighboring tribe of Hernicans, these cities would be the perfect places to expand. These treaties were made to strengthen Rome against foreign enemies, and allowed for common cause between the Romans, the Latins, and the Hernicans in repelling the attacks from the three main common enemies: the Volscians(occupied the southern plains of Latium, near the coast), the Aequians(Occupied the slopes of the Apennines, on the northeast), and the Etruscans(occupied the right bank of Tiber) (Morey, n.d., ch.
Hammurabi’s code is a series of Babylonian law codes engraved on a large stone. They come from ancient Mesopotamia, and date back to around 1754 BC. Today this Code shows us how even back then people were influenced by a central government. These laws were written by King Hammurabi who ruled the Babylonian empire from 1792-50 BCE. His reason for writing these laws was because of how many cities he had conquered, and how much his empire was growing, he needed one universal set of laws to unify everyone in his empire.
He expanded America, built more schools, and built libraries so citizens of the United States could check out books for free.

Religion Aksumites first started off practicing a polytheistic religion. Astar was the main god of the Aksumites and also his his son Mahrem which was who the kings of Aksum believed they were descendents from. But Under Emperor Ezana, Aksum adopted Christianity in place of its former polytheistic religion around 325 C.E.

In conclusion, the goals outlined by Justinian in my opinion included the reformation of the existing Roman law, the expansion of Byzantium, and the support for religious unity, were all achieved to different degrees by one of the greatest emperors of the Western world, Justinian. Justinian sought to reform the Empire and bring it back to life after the western half of the Roman Empire was lost. Due to Justinian and his substantial effort to restore Rome, Justinian has earned the nickname of the “Last Roman”. Justinian’s ambition and servitude towards the restoration of the Roman Empire is admirable and inspiring. Not only did Justinian’s legacy help shape Rome and the Roman Empire for years after his death, but his legacy leaves history with

The Emperor, Vespasian at the time took a part of Rome to build something for the public. This man did as much as he could to be part of public affairs rather than build structures for his selfish ways. The "Construction began 72 C.E, captured 12,000 Jewish slaves"(Ponticelli) so they could do all the work together to save time on building the Colosseum.
