Example text

Compromise can be seen as one of the central themes of early Roman history, and was furthermore a principal reason behind the Republic’s military success. There is nothing in the early history of Rome that shows the city to be predestined to become an imperial capital. Even so, by the fourth century Rome had emerged as a power that was markedly atypical: an aggressively imperialist state where an aristocracy consistently pushed for war and a huge percentage of the citizenry were under arms. The process by which Rome achieved this degree of bellicosity rests on four pillars.

This service was indelibly linked both with manhood as well as citizenship. The shifting attitude towards war in Rome can be viewed through religion. An obscure and largely amorphous goddess named Duellona (classical Bellona) represented war to the Romans of the fifth century. Likened to the Greek Ares, she symbolized the chaos of conflict; she personified disorder and was the antithesis of civic life. Temples to her were thus forbidden inside the pomerium. She appears to have gradually sunk in importance during the fourth century and the last known vow to her took place in 296.
