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.
The crusades were a religious dispute between Christianity and Islam that took place in order for the Christians to take back their holy land, Jerusalem, from the Muslims. Urban II initiated the crusades at the Council of Clermont through a speech, with an audience of noblemen and clerics. His main goal was to urge “European princes to stabilize Christendom’s borders and then go further to recapture Jerusalem and restore Christian rule to the holy land” (Bentley et al. 422). These expeditions sparked new political, religious, and economic developments for the world.
Rome has had many leaders, from triumphant hero’s to tyrants without mercy, but the one thing that all these leaders had in common is that in some way they had shaped or influenced Rome. Whether it be very small unnoticeable change to their city, or an act so monumental that it changed how the world would think soon after. Of coarse I am referring to Constantine the great. No other Roman king had such a massive influence on Rome or the world. Constantine the great was known for converting to Christianity and making Christianity into Romes national religion.
Thomas Godlewski SPW 247 Dr. McCarthy- Gilmore October 6, 2015 Cortez: Self- Propulsion and Ego Upon the defeat of the Moors, Spain struggled to cultivate an identity.

Before Napoleon became emperor, France was in a post-revolutionary state after a series of civil wars. Napoleon Bonaparte’s accomplishments were achieved inside and outside of France. Napoleon’s political feats were achieved by having superior military leadership. Napoleons leadership of France ended up turning tables in many different areas from gaining economic stability to establishing an agreement with Pope Pius VII of the Roman Catholic Church. The greatest achievements that made the years 1801-1805 the height of Napoleons political career were the Concordat, the Napoleonic Code, and the reformation of French economy.
Constantine would say that he seen a sign in the skies of what looked to be a cross. Constantine would later use this sign on all of his army equipment and it would become the sign used to represent Christians. The sign is said to be what motivated Constantine to convert to Christianity. Many will argue that Constantine’s motive for converting to Christianity was for political gain. Some will even argue that his conversion to Christianity was to gain more power and create more man power to take over more land.
The commission initially delivered a new gathering of the statutes and constitutions of the sovereigns, the codex Justinian’s that Justinian proclaimed on 529 A.D. At that point Justinian requested the codification of the legitimate conclusions of the Roman Jurists. The result of their work which was published on 533 A.D. was called Digest. The Digest contained the aggregate law of very nearly a thousand years of Roman lawful thought. It would turn into the most imperative legal book ever published and would impact the future state of European and world law. There were still a few focuses which had been faced off regarding and to which the enactment of Justinian did not so far outfit any answer.
Roman civilization grew on the Tiber River in the central part of the Italian peninsula. Founded by shepherds and traders, Rome began as a republican society with the government of the state shared by the citizens. This state gradually expanded its control of the surrounding territory until it had conquered the entire peninsula of Italy. It then looked to other parts of the Mediterranean, always with the excuse that Rome was only protecting itself against potential invaders. The essential characteristic of the Roman civilization was practicality: What would work in a given situation?

The battle between the Ottoman Empire and the Holy League known is as the Battle of Lepanto and it is the most important for the Christian religion. It is of great significance because if the Holy League had not won, the Ottoman Empire would have taken over Europe, and destroyed the Christian religion.

The new naval technique used by the Christian forces and the first success to push back and erode the Ottoman empire were the key concepts to defeat the Ottomans. The well-known crusades were fought between the end of the eleventh century and the late thirteenth century.
