Our View Of Rome

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

It was here that the Christians were persecuted.

 

I believe this idea is unsupported by any known facts. In many ways, this view shows the relevance of the opening post.

 

...Absolutely - this applies as well to the alleged extent and purposes of the other 'persecutions' (see other posts in relevent section). I seem to remember someone on another topic saying that most gladiator fights in the arenas actually didn't end in death. Our whole period of interest, it seems to me, is coloured by assumptions which are untrue, largely on account of hollywood films it seems, although theodosius 'the great' probably exaggerated the 'persecution' stories.

Skarr - that's very interesting, and sounds likely. What is your source?

Not one particular source.. I've read too many books on Rome and things connected with Rome for the past 25 years now and cannot pinpoint a particular source that all of this comes from... I have a fairly good picture in my mind now of how Rome looked and how the citizens lived... It certainly helps if you are a writer.
