THE ROMAN GREECE
[214 before JC – 200 after JC]
Internal conflicts and emigration to the colonies of Asia Minor have left Greece weakened, an easy prey for the new emerging power, Rome. Corinth, the last bastion, fell in 146 BC.
However, the GREEK CIVILIZATION attracts the new conquerors who accept it, adopt it and help spread it. Emperor Hadrian was particularly important to the country’s development, while patrons such as Herod Atticus built important monuments.
In 50 AD, the Apostle Paul visited Greece and introduced Christianity to the country.
The Gospels, written in GREEK LANGUAGE, will quickly dethrone the Olympian pantheon.
