  • Italy's Four Great Empires
    Part 3 of 5: Christianity
    Continued from part 2

    by Joe Diorio

    The second empire is Christianity! The largest organized religion had itís beginnings in Rome. Christianity arose in 1st century Palestine; the religion grew out of Judaism and would have its capital in Constantinople. Later, Emperor Constantine would move the capital of the church to Rome. Here is where, through the structure of the empire, Christianity would flourish. The religion would continue to grow as the Romans themselves began to have a certain admiration for the followers of Christianity who chose such horrible deaths for their beliefs. Emperor Constantine became a Christian and the church became even more popular. Later, under Emperor Theodosiusís reign, all Romans were made to become Christians. Millions of people still travel to the Eternal City to honor the church. There is no doubting that Christianity, in itself, is an empire and it owes itís thanks to Rome. Italy gave the western world two wonderful empires but, it still had not reached its zenith!
