The Second Sophistic: A Cultural Phenomenon in the Roman Empire Graham Anderson Sophism was the single most important movement in second century literature: prose of that period came to be written as entertainment rather than confined to historical subjects. The "Second Sophistic" traditionally refers to a period at the height of the Roman Empire's power that witnessed a flourishing of Greek rhetoric and oratory, and since the 19th century it has often been viewed as a defense of Hellenic civilization against the domination of Rome.

This book. Latin and Greek were the official languages of the Roman Empire, but other languages were important was the original language of the Romans and remained the language of imperial administration, legislation, and the military throughout the classical period.

In the West, it became the lingua franca and came to be used for even local administration of the cities including the law.

Aspects of our modern politics reminded University of California San Diego historian Edward Watts of the last century of the Roman Republic, roughly B.C.

to 27 B.C. The Roman Republic describes the period in which the city-state of Rome existed as a republican government, from B.C.

to 27 B.C. Rome’s republican government is one of the earliest examples of representative democracy in the world. Prior to the republic, Etruscan kings who lived nearby in central Italy ruled Rome. Once the last of these kings was overthrown in B.C., Rome’s. The Roman Republic (Latin: Rēs pūblica Rōmāna [ˈreːs ˈpuːblɪka roːˈmaːna]) was the era of classical Roman civilization, led by the Roman people, beginning with the overthrow of the Roman Kingdom, traditionally dated to BC, and ending in 27 BC with the establishment of the Roman was during this period that Rome's control expanded from the city's immediate surroundings.

The Roman Republic ended in war. Octavian, Julius Caesar’s anointed heir, defeated Antony and his lover Cleopatra, the queen of Egypt, to rise to unchallenged power as Augustus, the first Roman Emperor.

He ended a long cycle of internal conflict in the Roman world, a territory that Julius Caesar had realised was too big to be ruled by its old institutions. Marcus Fabius Quintilianus (A.D. 35 – 95) was a celebrated orator, rhetorician, Latin teacher and writer who promoted rhetorical theory from ancient Greece and from the height of Roman rhetoric.

His work on rhetoric, the Institutio Oratoria, is an exhaustive volume of twelve books and was a major contribution to educational theory and literary criticism. The republic that had existed for over years had finally hit a crisis it couldn’t overcome.

Rome itself wouldn’t fall, but during this period it lost its republic forever. The Roman army changed over time.

The consuls had the power to recruit troops, but in the last years of the Republic, provincial governors were replacing troops without the approval of the consuls.

This led to legionaries loyal to their generals rather than Rome. Before Marius, recruitment was limited to citizens enrolled in the top 5 Roman classes. Roman portraiture during the Republic is identified by its considerable realism, known as veristic portraiture.

Verism refers to a hyper-realistic portrayal of the subject’s facial characteristics. The style originated from Hellenistic Greece; however, its use in the Roman Republic is due to Roman values, customs, and political life.

De Ligt, ‘The Economy: agrarian change during the second century’, in N. At the beginning of the fifth century B.C., shortly after the expulsion of the Roman kings, the Romans won a battle at Lake Regillus that Livy describes in Book II of his battle, which, like most events of the period, contains legendary elements, was part of a war between Rome and a coalition of Latin states, often called the Latin League.

how did roman patricians view hellenism in the roman republic during the second century b.c.e. they reacted in a paradoxical fashion in that they wanted the continuation of roman traditions even as they adopted many greek ideas and customs. ROMAN REPUBLIC* By BARBARA LEVICK Ancient writers ascribed Rome's political difficulties during the last century of the Republic to failures of character, specifically to ambitio, avaritia, luxuria, and libido.

All in all, I found the book pretty good. This probably isn’t the best book either for someone new to the topic of the Roman Republic as some familiarity is expected throughout the text.

Also, if you are looking for a political/military narrative you will have to look elsewhere. out of 5 s:   The Cambridge Companion to the Roman Republic (Cambridge University Press, ) (Found at Google Books).

This book includes the essay by Jurgen Von Ungern-Sternberg (translated by Harriet I. Flower), “The Crisis of the Roman Republic,” pp. 89– E. Gruen, The last generation of the Roman Republic (Berkeley ). Roman military personal equipment was produced in small numbers to established patterns, and it was used in an established manner.

These standard patterns and uses were called the res militaris or regular practice during the Roman Republic and Roman Empire led to military excellence and victory. The equipment gave the Romans a very distinct advantage over their barbarian enemies. A great read for someone wishing to understand why the Roman Republic rose to power and why the Empire endured so long.

The review of the makeup of a typical legion, covering the men, equipment, and tactics, and the provides one with a good basis from Reviews: Some years after its first publication, Gibbon's Decline and Fall is still regarded as one of the greatest histories in Western literature.

He reports on more than 1, years of an empire which extended from the most northern and western parts of Europe to deep into Asia and Africa and covers not only events but also the cultural and religious developments that effected change during that.
