Fact of the Day: Roman Darkness

While the Roman Empire merited countless criticism of various subjects, when Rome fell Europe entered the Dark Ages. Without Rome, Europe faced many economical and cultural struggles along with little contributions to science. The continent didn't fully recover until the Renaissance in the 14th century.

  6. 'tis because the Romans have kept so many nations enslaved that it took time for those nations to find their ways alone after the Rome fell apart

  7. Let us not forget that the Catholic Church was the big powerhouse during the Dark Ages. They have a lot to answer for too.

  10. Wow. Funny that that's all it takes to fall behind. I wonder what our scientific innovations would be like now if Rome hadn't fallen.

  11. The history of Rome is one of my favorite subjects. Rome's administrative strength was so powerful that one language and one currency organized and ruled over a landmass that fifty separate governments struggle to govern today.
