Great rulers met their downfall when they put their own status in front of the well being of the people they govern. When the citizens are left high and dry and not regarded as important to their society then this is when there is an overthrow of power and a new ruler comes into play. Citizens had a place in po

Roman Legions
Roman Legions The Roman Legions were one of Rome’s greatest armies ever. Many factors lead to the greatness of the Roman Legions. First, the Roman Legionaries were very well trained and disciplined.

A new and malevolent superstition The first instance of the Roman State taking action against Christians arose in the reign of the Emperor Claudius (41-54 A.D.). The historians Suetonius and Dio Cassius tell us that Claudius had to expel the Jews because they were continually arguing among themselves about a certain Chrestos. "Here we have first mention of the response to the Christian message in the community of Rome," comments Karl Baus. The historian Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus (70- ca.140) w

The Emperor Julius Caesar is perhaps most famous as the first Roman Emperor to convert to Christianity.
