Of the Manner in Which the Persecutors Died

By: Lactantius

Behold, all the adversaries are destroyed, and tranquillity having been re?established throughout the Roman empire, the late oppressed Church arises again, and the temple of God, overthrown...

Roman Imperialism

By: Tenney Frank

Preface: My purpose in the following pages has been to analyze, so far as the fragmentary sources permit, the precise influences that urged the Roman republic toward territorial expansion. Imperialism, as we now use the word, is generally assumed to be the national expression of the individual?s ?will to live.? If this were always true, a simple axiom would suffice to explain every story of conquest. I venture to believe, however, that such an axiom is too frequently ass...

By: Philip Schaff

Religion and Christian Theology Collection

Excerpt: Pyrenees into Spain. They were not a single people, but many independent tribes; not an organized army of a conqueror, but irregular hordes of wild warriors ruled by intrepid kings; not directed by the ambition of one controlling genius, like Alexander or Caesar, but prompted by the irresistible impulse of an historical instinct, and unconsciously bearing in their rear the future destinies of Europe and America. They brought with them fire and sword, destruction...

Gaudissart Ii

Excerpt: To know how to sell, to be able to sell, and to sell. People generally do not suspect how much of the stateliness of Paris is due to these three aspects of the same problem. The brilliant display of shops as rich as the salons of the noblesse before 1789; the splendors of cafes which eclipse, and easily eclipse, the Versailles of our day; the shop-window illusions, new every morning, nightly destroyed; the grace and elegance of the young men that come in contact...

Process Physics: Modeling Reality as Self-Organizing Information

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Excerpt: Modeling Reality. The present day modeling of reality and the mindset of physicists was very much set by the Ancient Greeks some 2,500 years ago, particularly by Democritus with his concept of atoms as objects occupying a position in space.

These concepts were clearly abs...
