phoenicians

Salvete, Indeed, hard to answer. One thing (in my opinion) is sure: the Phoenicians would never have ruled an empire as big as Rome. They had the chance to conquer land before rome rose, and they never did. They simply established colonies (as Carthago) but didn't surpress the local people a...

Places

Salve,


But how were they divided, were there seperate rooms? Were those rooms sold, rented or whatever? Had people to provide their own furniture?

Extremists

Salvete! Let me first say this: I don't want to hurt anyone! But :wink: ... I'm not sure which extremist party is allegedly ruling in the US. Disagree with some of their policies as I might, the Republicans are from extremists in the grand scale of things. Well, it is maybe not what...

Architecture

Salvete, Most people here know I have a great interest in architecture. I have seen many Roman buildings in Germany, Belgium, France, Greece and tunisia. But almost al remnants are from luxury houses, public places or monuments. How did the ordinary insula look like? How many stages did it h...

Greece under Roman Rulers

Salvete,


a humble question: The conquest of Greece by Rome has always been a dark spot in my memory. Not so much the invasion, but more the consequences it had on Greek and Roman society. Was Greece ransacked? Or did they get a more respectful threatment?


Valete,

Security

Salve Lupe, This isn't an easy one. Some of the things you say certainly are true. The social standing theory is true. Otherwise Caesa&r wouldn't have made all his opponents that strong in 'de bello Galico'. But this question is something of all ages: Why did the Spanish invade southern ...

Best text

Salve, It depends... If you want some grammatical perfect, but sometimes hard to understand Latin, I would recommend Cicero. If you want a Latin text with great content I would go for Tacitus. But in your case I would recommend Caesar (De Bello Gallico) as it is clear and easily understan...

Romanitas

Women

Salvete!


There is a discussion going in the Vita Quotidiana Collegium, but this can be asked here as well:

What did the Religio Romana say about Women? Were they equal to men? Did they have privileges?


Valete,

Daily life

Burial places

Salvete, Thursday Mus and I went to Köln (Colonia Aggripina). They have a beautiful Roman museum with many tombstones (I will try to put some pictures on the site soon). But I wonder: were important officers burried at the places where they died, or were they carried back to Rome? Where were th...

Roman Women

Salvete,


I read a lot about Roman Women. But some of those books state that women were threated as minor to men, others say that women were treated as very important. What is true? How did Roman women live in their daily life?

If priests were that important, how did one became priest in that era?
