The Plebeians had all the control over the Senate and the Consuls for a while. Eventually, the plebeians were given control over the Tribunes to give them a voice.

In 63 B.C, the Roman general Pompey conquered the land of the Israelites and united them with the Roman Empire. During the next three centuries following the birth of Jesus in, the Roman Empire played a significant role in the beginnings and spread of Christianity.

By being the foreign power that fulfills prophecy, having advanced infrastructure, and by persecuting other Christians, the Roman Empire helped Christianity become a notable religion. The Hebrew people believed that the Messiah promised by God would be born in a foreign power, challenge it, and be killed by it.

This work investigates resource consumption during the Roman Empire, and its effects on the civil collapse of ancient Rome. Investigation of the socioeconomic class system in ancient Rome provides a background for resource use based on the heavy distribution of land ownership among upper class citizens. Members of the rural lower class also maintain a significant role in the resource base of ancient Rome by providing the workforce for large agricultural estates. This work will also analyze the effect of population increase during the Pax Romana on resource scarcity and its implications on the eventual collapse of Roman civilization. The unsustainable nature of the Roman agrarian system, coupled with the developed notion that Roman society should
Although Christians were good citizens, and people who wanted to follow Jesus, they were constantly impacted by aspects of the Roman culture.
