Pax Romana

This is an old revision of this page, as edited by Jeremiah4-22 (Talk | contribs) at 16:55, 28 April 2007. It may differ significantly from current revision.

Pax Romana is Latin for 'Roman Peace'. From 27 to 180 AD, the Roman Empire enjoyed peace and prosperity, as well as good rulers. The Roman empire was ruled by the Five Good Emperors, who were chosen for talent rather than family connections.

During the Pax Romana:

  • The system of roads greatly improved
  • Aqueducts brought water from the mountains to Roman cities
  • Christianity was widely persecuted throughout the Roman empire
  • The Roman alphabet became the basis for the western world alphabet.
