Christianity started off with only a few followers, but has grown into the most practiced religion in the world. About 2,000 years ago a man by the name of Jesus was born into the Roman ruled city of Jerusalem. Jesus was raised in a community of Jewish followers, and followed the Jewish law himself. Jesus believed that he was the messiah, the savior whom profits predicted would one day bring peace to the people of Israel. The Romans and and Jewish leaders felt threatened by Jesus because he thought he was the messiah. Jesus would then be crucified by the Romans. Christianity was able to take hold in the ancient world and flourish because of Christianity 's belief in equality, Rome’s biased
In 27 BCE (Before Common Era) the Roman Empire was entering its golden age, “The Pax Romana.” During the Pax Romana, the citizens of all Roman cities enjoyed free food and entertainment along with access to all of the Roman amenities such as bathhouses, roads, and mail service. However in 180 CE (Common Era) the Roman empire took a turn for the worse and eventually the last empire fell in 476 CE. The once powerful Roman Empire was in shambles. So what happened to the empire? The two most important factors that led to the fall of the Roman Empire in 476 CE were poor leadership and Military problems.
About 4,000 years ago, Hammurabi, the King of Babylon, made 282 laws to gain peace. In my opinion, I think that Hammurabi’s Code wasn’t just because it shows that is hurt family, it made people lose some kind of property, and it depended who you were in order to come up with a consequence for personal injury.
Theater, government, and religion were all essential parts of ancient Greek culture. A unique trait which all of these aspects of ancient Greek society shared was progression and development. Theater progressed from simply relaying stories to tackling controversial topics which sparked discussion. Government showed growth and progression in both Sparta and Athens. Sparta developed a militaristic society which eliminated socioeconomic inequality and Athens’s monarchy evolved into a free democracy where people’s voices were heard. Religion does not contain progression as easily identifiable since there is no true timeline of the myths. However, it can be seen that over the course of many myths, there are Gods who hold power over
The middle class was an important group because they often held important jobs that society could not function without. For example, some of the middle class were doctors and lawyers. This group was similar to the aristocrats because they too had similar beliefs and ideas. They too also owned slaves, but only a few each and they were well off because they had decent income. Furthermore, both the aristocrats and middle class were able to afford luxuries and could educate their children. Women of these classes were also not required to work but often watched over the affairs of the families plantations since the men were busy in government or other
The Roman Republic government contributed to the development of the democratic principles because the romans developed and its government eventually dividing into three branches. The Roman Republic had three main groups, patricians, Magistrates/Consuls Censors/praetors. The three main groups were like the democratic principle separation of powers. The Roman Republic had its “Rule of Law”, but the Romans called it the Twelve Tables. The democratic principle Representative government was also in the Roman Republic government, but was differently portrayed. The Plebeians did not have any say in the government but the consuls and the upper class
Imperial Rome had a democratic government, where the people voted for everything. They had two classes, the patricians and the plebeians. 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. The patricians were the wealthy, land owners, and the upper class citizens. They had all the control over the religion and the government. The plebeians were everybody that wasn’t a Patrician. They had little to no voice throughout imperial Rome’s history. In both classes the oldest male was the head of the families. Women had no rights during this time and the people were Christian.
In protect rights, I didn’t give them a great grade. I gave them a C. In Rome there were two distinct classes and they were called patricians. Patricians are the higher class and they are wealthy. Also, they are the only ones allowed to be in the government. Their percentage of the population is a small junk of Rome. To be a patrician, you had to have been given birth by a patrician. Now the plebeian on the other hand is every other person in Rome. Not every plebeian is
God used the Babylonian empire, under the leadership of King Nebuchadnezzar, to conquer Judah, and lead the Jewish people captive to Babylon during three deportations, 605 B.C., 597 B.C., and 586 B.C. God determined that the Jewish people would remain in captivity for 70 years (cf. Jer. 25:11; 29:10) for failure to adhere to the mandated land Sabbaths that occurred over 490 years (2 Chron. 36:21). When the 70 years were completed, God began His sovereign plan to bring His people back to the Promised Land and commence building the second temple (2 Chron. 36:22-23; Jer. 29:10; Ezra 1).
The ancient civilization of China gave us the paper we use today and spread many ideas throughout Asia. Although the Egyptians first invented the papyrus paper, it was the Chinese who first made paper out of trees, the paper we use today. They found this paper to be much easier to make. However, China did not make most of their income off of the new paper product; China obtained their wealth by selling silk. China is the only place where silkworms can be found naturally. China traded their scarce product all throughout Asia via a route known as the Silk Road. This route was widely used by many other people as well; this led to cultural diffusion, the spread of ideas among different people. Document six states, “Cultural diffusion led to advances in many societies throughout the world.” China traded their new inventions throughout Asia and gained wealth but, China gave the people across Asia something in return, a chance to learn, grow, and prosper.
I believe that Hammurabi’s code was just. I have all of the laws and documents that support my claim as to why I think the code was just. I think that Hammurabi’s code was just because obviously these things had to have happened at least once or they wouldn’t have laws about it. So society needs to learn even if it means having that harsh of a punishment. Having that harsh of a punishment actually helps because society sees that if they do that specific crime, they will get a really bad punishment so that prevents it from happening.
In 10,000 B.C. the agriculture revolution started with the Neolithic Period, people were able to stay in one place, and grow there own food. Instead of gathering and migrating with the animal 's, they were able to stay in one place and build settlement 's. These settlement 's turn into the ancient cities such as Egypt, Nubia, Babylon, Greece and Rome.
During the period of the Early Empire, Roman expansion and change marked the end of the Roman Republic. Growth changed the ideal of the republic and new problems surfaced within Rome itself. Increase power in the Senate which led to a less democratic society and increase military power for the Greeks as well as civil wars between Rome and the provinces were some of the political changes that were prompted by Roman expansion. Socio-economical changes like high taxes due to the wars and movement towards cities, increase unemployment, and income disparity caused by the dispute between patricians and the plebeian were promoted by Roman expansion.
Published around 1780 BCE, the Code of Hammurabi governed the lives of people in ancient Babylon. The code created a gateway as to how people in society should function. Hammurabi was able to organize one of the largest conserved set of laws, consisting of 282 individual scriptures written on a stone sculpture, known as a stele. In order to be visible to society, the stele was placed in public. The scriptures focused on family values, land and ownership, physical violence and politics. These laws were meant to expand the nation, to keep the lives of Babylon under control. However, most of the people in ancient Babylon were illiterate, so they would never know the laws unless someone read it to them. People under Hammurabi had to make sure
For example, the Pennsylvania Constitution of 1776 mentions that, “the commonwealth or state of Pennsylvania shall be governed hereafter by an assembly of the representatives of the freeman of the same, and a president and council”. As previously stated, the idea of the “common people” in positions of power within the government flabbergasted the gentry and other members of the wealthy elite. Most argued that the common people were not educated in the affairs of politics. Therefore giving them the right to elect their own people in Congress would be catastrophic to the state. Similarly, many gentry felt that the common people “are more easily led by specious appearances” (Governor Morris, to Thomas Penn). In this instance, the gentry argue that they are the only ones who should be in office because their education allows them to see past the false pretenses of people looking to take advantage of the
