Lecture 2 Outline The Roman World Like the Ancient Greeks the Romans have also had an impact on the western world Rome s history can be divided into two distinct phases 1 the Roman Republic and 2 the Roman Empire It was during the Roman Republic that the foundations of ancient Rome were laid Beginning with the rule of Caesar Augustus the Roman Empire begins it is this period where Rome really flexed its muscle and might At one time the Roman Empire was the world s largest empire stretching from What is today Scotland to the ancient Near East and from northern Europe to North Africa By administering over this vast area the Romans heavily in uenced numerous peoples and lands Yet it was Rome s vastness that contributed to its downfall The Romans have given us or furthered our study of history politics engineering science and architecture Though historians point to 476 as the traditional END of the Roman Empire and thusancient history the legacies left behind by Rome continued forward Most notably Rome s embracing of Christianity Rome also left behind much needed law and order Many of the barbaric grOUp s who overran the western portion ofthe Roman Empire adopted much of
