3 Chapter 6, Section 1 The Roman World Takes Shape How did geography shape the early development of Rome? What were the major characteristics of government and society in the Roman republic? Why was Rome s expansion in Italy successful?
4 Chapter 6, Section 1 Geography and Rome Rome is located in the center of the Italian peninsula. This location helped the Romans expand in Italy and beyond. The Apennine Mountains run down the center of Italy but are not too rugged. Fertile plains supported a growing population. Ancestors of the Romans settled along the Tiber River. These villages eventually grew into Rome.
5 Chapter 6, Section 1 The Roman Republic In 509 B.C., the Romans drove out the Etruscans and set up a new government, which they called a republic. In a republic, some officials are chosen by the people. In the early republic, the senate dominated the government. Its members were patricians, or members of the landholding class. Little by little, the plebeians, or common people, gained some political power. These included the right to elect their own officials, called tribunes. The tribunes could veto, or block, laws that they felt harmed plebeians. More than 2,000 years later, the framers of the United States Constitution would adapt Roman ideas of government, such as the senate, the veto, and checks on political power.
6 Chapter 6, Section 1 Roman Society FAMILY The family was the basic unit of Roman society. Male was head of household and had absolute authority. EDUCATION Both girls and boys learned to read and write. Education was highly valued. Women gained greater freedom and influence over the centuries. Some women ran businesses. Most worked at home, raising families. WOMEN RELIGION Gods and goddesses resembled those of Greeks and Etruscans. Religious festivals inspired sense of community. Romans built many temples for worship.
7 Chapter 6, Section 1 Expansion in Italy By about 270 B.C., Rome controlled most of the Italian peninsula. Why was Rome s expansion in Italy successful? Skilled diplomacy Loyal, well-trained army Treated defeated enemies fairly Gave rights to conquered people
8 Chapter 6, Section 2 From Republic to Empire How did Rome win an empire? Why did the Roman republic decline? How did Roman emperors promote peace and stability in the empire?
9 Chapter 6, Section 2 Winning an Empire After gaining control of the Italian peninsula, Rome began to build an empire around the Mediterranean Sea. The Romans followed a policy of imperialism, establishing control over foreign lands and peoples. Carthage, Macedonia, Greece, and parts of Asia Minor became Roman provinces, or lands under Roman rule.
10 Chapter 6, Section 2 The Roman Empire at Its Height By 133 B.C., Roman power extended from Spain to Egypt.
11 Chapter 6, Section 2 Decline of the Republic Conquered people forced to work as slaves Huge quantities of grain Small farmers no longer needed to produce food New wealth increases corruption Farmers flock to Rome and other cities looking for jobs Greed and self-interest replace virtues of simplicity, hard work, and devotion to duty Civil wars
12 Chapter 6, Section 2 From Republic to Empire Civil wars Julius Caesar forces the Roman senate to make him dictator. Caesar institutes reforms to try to solve Rome s many problems. Caesar is killed by enemies who feared that he planned to make himself king of Rome. More civil wars break out. Octavian defeats Mark Antony in a struggle for power. The Roman senate gives Octavian the title of Augustus, or Exhalted One, and declares him first citizen. The 500-year republic comes to an end. The age of the Roman empire begins.
13 Chapter 6, Section 2 Roman Empire and Roman Peace Augustus laid the foundation for a stable government that would function well for 200 years. This period was called the Pax Romana. Augustus reforms Created efficient civil service to enforce the laws. Opened up high-level jobs to men of talent, regardless of race. Allowed cities and provinces to govern themselves. Ordered a census, or population count, in order to make the tax system more fair. Set up a postal service and issued new coins. Employed the jobless.
14 Chapter 6, Section 3 The Roman Achievement How was Greco-Roman civilization formed? What were some Roman contributions to literature, the arts, and technology? What principles of law did Romans develop?
15 Chapter 6, Section 3 How was Greco-Roman civilization formed? The Romans borrowed heavily from Greek culture after they conquered Greece. At the same time, Roman generals carried achievements of Roman civilization to conquered lands. The blending of Roman, Hellenistic, and Greek traditions produced Greco-Roman civilization. Trade and travel during the Pax Romana helped spread this new civilization.
16 Chapter 6, Section 3 Roman Advances in Literature, History, and Philosophy History Historians wrote about the rise and fall of Roman power. Poetry Writers imitated Greek styles in prose and poetry. Virgil praised Rome s heroic past in the Aeneid. Poets used verse to satirize, or make fun of, Roman society. Philosophy Roman philosophers borrowed heavily from the Greeks. Stoics emphasized acceptance of one s fate and concern for the wellbeing of others.
17 Chapter 6, Section 3 Roman Advances in Art and Science Technology Built roads, bridges, and harbors throughout empire Built many aqueducts Art Sculptors stressed realism. Artists depicted life scenes in frescoes and mosaics. Science Romans left scientific research to the Greeks. Ptolemy proposed that Earth was the center of the universe. Galen used experiments to prove a conclusion. Architecture Emphasized grandeur Improved column and arch Developed rounded dome
18 Chapter 6, Section 3 Roman Law During the Roman empire, these principles of law fostered unity and stability: An accused person was presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. The accused was permitted to face the accuser and offer a defense. Guilt had to be established through evidence. Judges were expected to interpret the laws and make fair decisions. Centuries later, these principles would become the basis for legal systems in Europe and the Americas.
19 Chapter 6, Section 4 The Rise of Christianity What was Rome s policy toward different religions in the early empire? What were the major teachings of Jesus, and how were they spread? How did the early Christian Church develop?
20 Chapter 6, Section 4 Religious Diversity in the Early Empire As long as people honored Roman gods and acknowledged the divine spirit of the emperor, they were allowed to worship other gods as they pleased. After the Romans conquered Judea, they excused the monotheistic Jews from worshiping the Roman gods. Rome mistrusted Christians because they refused to make sacrifices to the emperor or honor the Roman gods. Roman officials persecuted the Christians. Many Christians became martyrs, people who suffer or die for their beliefs.
21 Chapter 6, Section 4 The Teachings of Jesus Some of Jesus teachings were rooted in Judaism: Belief in one God Ten Commandments Mercy and sympathy for the poor and helpless Obedience to the laws of Moses Jesus also preached new beliefs: 1) Called himself the Son of God 2) Proclaimed that he brought salvation and eternal life to anyone who would believe in him 3) Jesus also emphasized God s love and taught the need for justice, morality, and service to others.
22 Chapter 6, Section 4 Spread of Christianity At first, the apostles and disciples preached only in Judea. Disciples began to preach in Jewish communities throughout the Roman world. Jews who accepted the beliefs of Jesus became the first Christians. Paul spread Christianity beyond the Jewish communities, to non-jews.
23 Chapter 6, Section 4 The Early Christian Church Early Christian communities shared a common faith and a common way of worship. A bishop was responsible for all Christians in a particular area called a diocese. Gradually, some bishops became patriarchs, with authority over other bishops in their area. The Christian Church thus developed a hierarchy.
24 Chapter 6, Section 5 The Long Decline How did Roman emperors try to end the crisis in the empire? How did Hun invasions contribute to the decline of Rome? How did economic and social problems lead to the fall of Rome?
25 Chapter 6, Section 5 The Empire in Crisis With the end of the Pax Romana, political and economic turmoil rocked the Roman empire. Political Problems Emperors were repeatedly overthrown or assassinated. In one 50-year period, 26 emperors ruled, and only one died of natural causes. Economic & Social Problems High taxes to support the army burdened business people and farmers. Poor farmers were forced to work and live on wealthy estates. Overcultivated farmland lost its productivity.
26 Chapter 6, Section 5 Two Reformers Diocletian Divided the empire into two parts to make it easier to govern Tried to increase the prestige of the emperor Fixed prices to slow inflation, or the rapid rise of prices Established laws to ensure steady production of food and goods Constantine Continued Diocletian s reforms Granted toleration to Christians, which led to the rapid growth of Christianity Built a new capital at Constantinople, making the eastern part of the empire the center of power
27 Chapter 6, Section 5 Foreign Invasions A weakened Rome could not withstand the forces of Germanic invasions. The Huns dislodged other Germanic peoples and, little by little, conquered the Roman empire.
