"Rome holds a key position in the history of Western civilization, for she welded all Mediterranean cultures into a new unity stamped with her own national character and passed this on to the West. Her language, law, political institutions, economic and social organization, universal church, and culture became the foundation of medieval civilization, and are now interwoven into the very texture of our own social and individual life. Roman history is therefore in no sense isolated or without vital significance to us, for here are the true origins of medieval and modern civilization. To one who has no understanding of imperial Rome, much in them must be, forever, a closed book...." - Chapter One from History Of Ancient Civilizations
