Rome the enduring legacy ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the early years of Christianity, the Roman empire was indifferent to the movement that would ultimately contribute to its downfall. Soon it came to persecute the members of the new religion that swelled in its midst. But ultimately, the conversion of Constantine paved the way for the triumph of Christianity in Western civilization and signaled the beginning of the end for the empire. This episode chronicles the decline of Rome, how its power shifted to the east to the new capital of Constantinople, a move cemented by the plundering of the city of Rome in 410 A.D. and how the influence of the ancient empire is still felt today. From the crucifixion of Jesus to the final flickering of Roman glory under Justinian, this program chronicles the decline of Rome and the rise of Christianity. Also examines the many ways in which the influence of the long-ago Empire is still felt today
