Default Do you think the Roman empire was good or bad . .?

. .?

Little historical breakdown ..

Rome was a city-state . . Pretty much the centre of Europe back then . . .

. . in time the people there became imperialist and started taking land in the north , south , east , west . . .


They fought the Germanics in northern Europe , the Celts in Western Europe , the Phoenicians in the south ( Carthago ) , the Egyptians , jews in the east and others . .

. . do you think this was a great example of 'European power' and ingenuity or do you think the Roman empire was doomed to fall from the beginning . .?

. . in the end the Empire was even divided into a Western and Eastern half since it became too inextricable to govern . .

- - - -

. . it fell under Caesar Romulus Augustulus . . ( Eastern Rome fell later . .)

. . how do you view it . .?

Rome , having ceased to be the heart of the Empire now became the centre of Christendom instead . . . Later for the Catholics . .

I suppose this is why many call Rome 'the eternal city' . .

. . and indeed it has always been a centre of Europe . . .

. . the first European superpower , after that the seat of christianity . .

. . but it also isn't a secret that Rome's status always lured in multiculturalism and jews ( who tried to make a buck . . ) Hmmmm . .

. . what Rome certainly has brought . .

- it was , in a way , the first city to unite all of Europe . .

. . it brought the Celts / Germanics the civilisation ( city-dwelling ) which previously more or less had a 'wild rover'-lifestyle ( Celts / Germanics were immigrants into West-Europe ; Germanics having invaded from Eastern-Europe / Eurasia and Celts from Asia Minor , so they were more of less 'on trek' . .) . . .

. . it also brought them one common script . .

. . it held together early christendom . .

Views on Rome ?

. . on the 'Roman Empire' . .?

. . P. S. : Other names for Rome include 'the most astounding city in the universe' . .

. . or 'the navel of the world' . . .
