How did Rome Expand into Greece and Hispania? – History of the Roman Empire – Part 5

For Rome, its decades-long rivalry with the Carthaginian Empire was a significant distraction. The outbreak of the three Punic Wars marked an attention-grabbing period of Roman history that at times even overshadowed the contemporary events outside of the Carthaginian-Roman conflict. However, the Punic Wars were far from the only notable events in Rome’s past during the time they raged on, and they weren’t even the only wars that Rome faced throughout the era. So now, let’s take a look through what happened in Rome’s history without Carthage…

    The whole of Greece was under foreign rule for many centuries,starting with the Roman conquest in the second century BC. What distinguishes the Ionian Islands from the rest of Greece is that, with some exceptions, they did not form part of the Ottoman Empire, while the rest of the Greek world was under Ottoman rule for anything between two hundred and five hundred years. The fact that these islands were ruled by Catholics rather than Muslims has made them strikingly different from the rest of Greece, in language, music, costume, cuisine and architecture.

  2. 😏 Again Koraes' careful rhetoric, which matches his self-projection, seems to be in play; his classifications of“Greek slavery under the Romans” and “Greek slavery under the Ottomans” are closely linked a few lines below: Modern Greeks could justifiably boast more than Plutarch's contemporaries, when freed from the yoke of the savage tyrant, compared to which the Roman yoke could rightly be considered a luxury, and after they gain their freedom, they are willing to maintain it…16

  3. And there is also evidence that the word 'Hellene' now meant 'pagan', and Justinian did conduct persecutions of Hellenes.

    The ancient Hellenes were conquered by the Romans . Emperor Justinian destroyed the last vestiges of Hellenic civilisation , and state Christianity created a new civilisation on the ruins of the old .

    Hellenes as they were called, were persecuted by the enforcement of these general rules; Justinian endeavored, above all things, to deprive them of education, and he had the University of Athens closed in 529; at the same time ordering wholesale conversations.

  4. Very good indeed, hope you guys do more work on the other illyrian tribes, such as the Albanoi, Ardiaei and the Dardanians. They really went at it with Philip of Macedon, lots of wars 👍

  5. This is true, you look into the Punic wars and the romans control most of Italy, then by the end you realise that not only do they control Africa and Iberia but they also happened to have acquired Greece, parts of Illyria and cisalpine Gaul. The Punic wars were impressive enough, despite doing all the rest during their breaks
