Ancient Rome The Rise and Fall of an Empire Read å 6 Free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB î Simon Baker Simon Baker î 6 Review This is the story of the greatest empire the world has ever known Simon Baker charts the rise and fall of the world's first superpower focusing on six momentous turning points that shaped Roman history Welcome to. Simon Baker s Ancient Rome The Rise and Fall of an Empire is a good introduction to Roman history covering various key points in the history of Rome Probably not the same key points that someone else would choose but he makes a decent case for the importance of each stop on the tour Some people s reviews say that if you have the most basic grasp of Roman history this is too simple I wouldn t say so I have a GCSE and an A Level in classical studies but the effect was a very similar kind of tour of Roman history that just picked out different stopping points So there were some things I didn t know much about at allOne thing that is a little disappointing is the transitions between each chapters It isn t really made clear how the transitions between the different time periods were made it goes straight from Constantine for example to the attacks on Rome by Alaric without covering the intervening time at all Even a little timeline at the start of each chapter would ve helpedStill Simon Baker s prose is pretty readable and accessible If you re not especially interested in the topic I still wouldn t recommend this as despite the six turning points it uses it s still a 400 page volume A Very Brief Introduction it ain tAll in all for me it was okay but I ll be donating my copy to the local library rather than keeping it

Ancient Rome The Rise and Fall of an Empire Read å 6 Free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB î Simon Baker Simon Baker î 6 Review Ey the Great Julius Caesar Augustus Nero and ConstantineThe superb narrative full of energy and imagination is a brilliant distillation of the latest scholarship and a wonderfully evocative account of Ancient Rome. The book accompanies a BBC TV series with the same name focussing on six major events in Roman history The revolution triggered by Tiberius Sempronius Gracchus around 130BC as the tribune of the people starting the processes which led to power shifting away from the nobility to the people The civil war fought by Pompey and Caesar resulting in the unification of the empire under one man The last Julio Claudian emperor and paranoid Nero being interested in the Greek arts than administering an empire The crushing of the Jewish rebelling in 70AD by the later emperor Titus Constantine s rule as emperor which eventually saw the introduction of Christianity as the state religion The sack and fall of Rome under the influence of Romanized Goths under Alaric and later the Huns under Attila Here are a few interesting tidbits I picked up from the book partially in relation to Jesus Was Caesar On the Julian Origin of Christianity Policy changes installed by Augustus during his reign related to sexual s in general and adultery in particular appear very Christian Indeed sexual chastity was already one of the defining classifications of Christians when Constantine introduced it to the empire at large Augustus mausoleum is still partly standing in Rome There is no surviving account of where the Rubicon was the river which separated Italy from Gaul and across which military leaders were not allowed to take their armies This is the river Caesar crossed when he lamented that the die had been cast When Octavianus considered his nickname he entertained the possibility of having himself called Romulus after Rome s founding father However rejecting the association that might conjure up of fratricide he went for Augustus which derives from the art of augury the ability to read divine signs for example from the innards of sacrificed animals Augustus was treated as a god particularly in the eastern provinces The date of Christmas was moved to coincide with pagan religious holidays that is the winter solstice Augustus birthday was on 23 September There doesn t seem to be an accepted original date for the celebration of the birth of Jesus though the general consensus seems to be this was in September or October Early images of Jesus depict him beardless Hadrian of the wall as emperor made the position of emperor much accessible to the common man through his extended travels and the relative ease with which his audience could be sought Therefore not only did he make the position of Emperor accessible but also the religious role of all emperors since Caesar that of Pontifex Maximus the exact same title which later became attached to the popes Hadrian as opposed to the emperors before him was also the first to sport a neatly cropped beard And this around 125AD Particularly the outer provinces benefited from his presence The book s very well written giving a riveting account and very much bringing to life events which shaped Roman times My only gripe is that the existence of Jesus is taken as a fact a sad shortcoming as there are no historical sources with any validity from which this can be deduced For a book which claims to be grounded in historically verifiable sources this is an unnecessary slip up
