Rome COT

Rome between the years 100 C.E. from 600 C.E. had many transformations as well as some
things that kept going on in their time period. Some of the modifications of Rome was in
latifundia and their culture. The continuities was that they always depended on their slave for
There were an abundant of changes while the Roman Republic turned into the Roman
Empire, but only some things stayed the same. For example Christianity was the only thing that
transladated from Republic and Empire. As the Empire was settling people from the
Mediterranean Basin was influenced from Christianity enhancements. By 380 C.E. Christianity
turned into the official religion for Rome.
Latifundia was important in Rome because they started to gain more and more slaves
with each conquer. Slaves came from the places that the Roman military conquered but they
would only find use for the middle-aged adults. The children and elderly were killed because
they had no use for them. With that the slave became one-third of the population. Latifundia was
a place where the slaves did hard labor like managing the state quarries and mines. It was filled
with slaves that didn’t have owners.
Rome put a lot of confidence on its slaves and because of that it didn’t have any
technology development. Men and women slaves had different roles to play. Men were used as
servants, craftsmen, laborers, shopkeepers, or business agents for the people they served. The
women didn’t have to tolerate as much as the men did. They were just used as domestic servants.
As the years went along they kept having alterations and permanencies. The same thing
they had was their certainty on their slaves. That led them to their downfall because they didn’t
have any new technology that would have helped them in battle. Latifundia was still kept for
non-owned slaves and Christianity remained in Rome and spread around.
