Why Were All Romans

FREE READ Why Were All Romans SUMMARY Why Were All Romans 107 REVIEW í eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Carl J. Richard Ners received Greek ideas from Roman sources Similarly when the Western world adopted the ethical monotheism of the Hebrews it did so at the instigation of a Roman citizen named Paul who took advantage of the peace unity stability and roads of the empire to proselytize the previously pagan Gentiles who uickly became a majority of the religion's adherents Although the Roman government of the first century crucified Christ and persecuted Christians Rome's fourth and fifth century leaders encouraged the. Why We re All Romans was solid but not spectacular For the most part Richard does a good job at proving his central theme ways in which our modern society is shaped by ancient Rome There are both good broad points and lots of good little anecdotes The chapters on Administration and Law Engineering and Architecture and the Rise and Romanization of Christianity were my favoritesA lot of this book focused on Roman literature in its various forms and I get why that s an important area to look at but too much of this book was really just a bunch of Roman author literary analysis s verse was powerful while being playful that sort of thing I even like reading some of this ancient literature and yet I found this analysis pedantic I also found it a bit strange that Richard has obviously spent a considerable amount of time compiling and praising Roman contributions to the world and yet in the Christianity chapter he is rather critical of Roman influences as corrupters of the religion

Richard Spread of Christianity throughout the Western world In addition to making original contributions to administration law engineering and architecture the Romans modified and often improved the ideas they assimilated Without the Roman sense of social responsibility to temper the individualism of Hellenistic Greece classical culture might have perished and without the Roman masses to proselytize and the social and material conditions necessary to this evangelism Christianity itself might not have surviv. Why We re All Romans is an interesting collection of some of Rome and Greece s biggest accomplishments and is presented in a well written and entertaining manner While I ve read a fair number of books on Rome I found uite a bit of new information and generally found this book to be a very worthwhile read I m going to sound a bit spoiled when I suggest a few criticisms of this book but here goes nothing There are a few times where the author s brevity is a disservice to the reader He describes some of the emperors in too simplistic a fashion Claudius only gets a few sentences for example which makes both him and his accomplishments seem forgettable when his reign was anything but At the same time a few sections go into too much detail The philosophy section was too much for me I can remember learning about Plato and Socrates in college and I still felt overwhelmed by the amount of ideas the author tried to cover I also have to confess that I ve already forgotten most of what I should have learned in that section Along the same lines I feel like the last chapter talked too much about Christianity and started to get away from Rome itself I think a fair number of readers will like the detail here but as an Agnostic I could definitely be spared some of the praise for Christianity These complaints are all minor however If you re interested in learning of the greatness of Rome and a little about Greece too then I give this book a strong recommendation
