  • The language spoken by Roman’s was Latin

    • Was derived from the Greek alphabet
    • Latin is where most languages today are derived from
      • J, U and W were added letters by English-speaking people.
  • With the language and alphabet came the literary art that had influenced many.

      • Letters
      • Plays
      • Philosophies

  • Architecture is a crucial reminder of Ancient Rome’s power.
    • Found in the formal of temples and basilicas and in its utilitarian buildings like bridges and aqueducts.
    • Different architectures were meant for different purposes and symbolized different things.
  • Roman technology relates fairly closely to other ancient cultures.
    • Pullies, ropes, winches, wooden structures, etc.
  • Using this technology, they made their empire.
  • They lacked the ability to really move operations.
    • Success was still found in large stone sections to be moved over great distances.
  • Romans worshiped many gods.
    • Believed in “contracts” instead of balance
    • Similar to the Greek religion.
      • Curiosity and interest in other gods made the Romans “adopt” gods into their system of higher powers
  • Emperors were viewed as something of a god.
    • Romans did NOT like when Jews and Christians worshiped only one god
  • For many years, government was led by consuls.
    • Controlled the army, decided on war, and the amount taxes would be, along with other decisions
    • A Senate was there for the consuls like an “advisory board”
      • No women were allowed
  • Generals began to take over government for themselves.
    • They had complete power when away with their army.
  • From the art of their language to the power of their government and empire, Ancient Rome had affected Europe even in the slightest ways
  • We see Roman influence even in the United States and almost anywhere else you may go
