A villa was originally an ancient Roman upper-class country house. Since its origins in the Roman villa, the idea and function of a villa have evolved considerably. After the fall of the Roman Republic, villas became small farming compounds, which were increasingly fortified in Late Antiquity, sometimes transferred to the Church for reuse as a monastery. Then they gradually re-evolved through the Middle Ages, into elegant upper-class country homes. In modern parlance 'villa' can refer to various types and sizes of residences, ranging from the suburban "semi-detached" double villa to residences in the wildland–urban interface. wikipedia.org

The Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira are also part of Portugal. The land within the borders of today's Portuguese Republic has been continuously settled since prehistoric times. Some of the earliest civilizations include Lusitanians and Celtic societies. Incorporation into the Roman Republic dominions took place in the 2nd century BC. The region was ruled and colonized by Germanic peoples, such as the Suebi and the Visigoths, from the 5th to the 8th century. From this era, some vestiges of the Alans were also found. The Muslim Moors arrived in the early 8th century and conquered the Christian Germanic kingdoms, eventually occupying most of ...

Also reread Adrian Goldsworthy's biography of Gaius Julius Caesar. Maybe some lessons to be learned. Extremely wealthy and powerful individuals dominating the political and economic scene helped unsettle the Roman Republic and the ability of some wealthy individuals being able to raise their own private armies (Pompey, Crassus, Caesar and Octavianus were all able to do this at times) ultimately brought down republican government and produced monarchy.

America: Republic or Democracy? by William P. Meyers Lately, from politicians, radio-talk show hosts, and other commentators, we have heard that we should forget about democracy, because the U.S.A. is a republic. But some questions are being posed by democracy advocates: What is a republic? What is a democracy? Should the United States be a mere republic, or a genuine democracy? Republicans and other democracy detractors point to the U.S. Constitution and bits of history, and say, "See, the Founding Fathers who wrote the Constitution gave us a Republic. They believed democracies were dangerous and unworkable." On that, they are partly right, but they fail to mention that democracies and republics overlap. They are not opposites. And they fail to account for the history of American government since 1788, much less the debates that took place in America prior to 1788, when the U.S. Constitution was substituted for the Articles of Confederation. Democracy means rule of the people. The two most common forms o ...

For 40 years [now 66 years], freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought into force by states of national emergency. The problem of how a constitutional democracy reacts to great crises, however, far antedates the Great Depression. As a philosophical issue, its origins reach back to the Greek city-states and the Roman Republic.

In ancient Roman religion, the Capitoline Triad was a group of three supreme deities who were worshipped in an elaborate temple on Rome's Capitoline Hill, the Capitolium. Two distinct Capitoline Triads were worshipped at various times in Rome's history, both originating in ancient traditions predating the Roman Republic. The one most commonly referred to as the "Capitoline Triad" is the more recent of the two, consisting of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva and drawing on Etruscan mythology.[1] The earlier triad, sometimes referred to in modern scholarship as the Archaic Triad, consisted of Jupiter, Mars and Quirinus and was Indo-European in origin. Each triad held a central place in the public religion of Rome during its time.

BRIEF HISTORY OF ROME AND BARBARIAN ACTIVITIES OVER ROME OFF AND ON FROM NORTH AND EAST OF ROME: The founding of Rome goes back to the very early days of civilization. It is so old, it is today known as 'the eternal city'. The Romans believed that their city was founded in the year 753 BC. Modern historians though believe it was the year 625 BC. A speech in the Roman senate Early Rome was governed by kings, but after only seven of them had ruled, the Romans took power over their own city and ruled themselves. They then instead had a council known as the 'senate' which ruled over them. From this point on one speaks of the 'Roman Republic'. The word 'Republic' itself comes from the Latin (the language of the Romans) words 'res publica' which mean 'public matters' or 'matters of state'. The senate under the kings had only been there to advise the king. Now the senate appointed a consul, who ruled Rome like a king, but only for one year. - This was a wise idea, as like that, the consul ruled carefully and not ...

I wonder where I would go in the Roman world if I was a legionnaire on leave during the late Republic or early Empire.
If I were a legionnaire in the late Roman Republic on leave from Caesar's legions in Roma I would probably be in brothel.

THE POLITEUMA METAPHOR A chain of well-known historical events gives tremendous force to Paul's use of the word politeuma. The assassination of Julius Caesar on the Ides of March, 44 B.C., rekindled a smoldering civil war in Rome. The renewed conflict would profoundly affect the future of Philippi, a small city in Macedonia. When Caesar's murderers failed to restore the old Roman Republic, two of them fled Rome to consolidate support in the eastern provinces. Marcus Brutus took over the Roman province of Macedonia, while Gaius Cassius Longinus, the leader of the conspiracy and an experienced general, seized control of the province of Syria. Meanwhile, in opposition to the assassins, Caesar's grandnephew Octavian allied himself with Mark Antony (and Lepidus) to form the Second Triumvirate. Two powerful roman armies formed one in Italy, the other in the East. Each numbered nearly one hundred thousand men. A sequence of strategic maneuvers brought these massive forces into contact just west of Philipp ...
"And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many unto remission of sins." — Mat 26:27-28. EVERY CHRISTIAN disciple should partake of the Lord's Supper regularly. It is a Sacrament. In the days of the Roman republic, the youths were brought to the altar and sworn to serve their country to the death. So our first Communion is our oath of allegiance to our King, It is a proclamation, or confession, of our faith. We bear witness to the death of Christ as our hope of forgiveness and salvation. We testify our desire to put His cross and grave between us and the world. It is also a bond of Christian union.
While people contrive secret groups that seek world domination, the real threat we have is directly in front of us – it is Republican Governments that masquerade as Democracies and are as evil as the Roman Republic that caused the civil war. The propaganda against Julius Caesar has survived to this day and has wrongly colored our ideas of him and what was at stake. Caesar stood against the corrupt politicians and when he crossed the Rubicon, they fled to Asia while the people rejoiced and opened the city gates to him. Everyone expected Caesar to abolish all debts that were being exploited from the people – a situation not so different from today. Today, governments are no more democracies than it was in Rome. Every single REPUBLIC has devolved into total corruption led by an oligarchy. The people behind the curtain are bureaucrats, not bankers. The bankers may try to manipulate these people, but they have now lost the game to raw political power. The US is going after Credit Swiss and expects to fine ...

I added a video to a playlist THE Roman Empire - RISE OF THE REPUBLIC
If one is going to look into what makes a classic and civic republic, then a particularly good start would be with Cicero and Rome. Well, more exact, Cicero's re-telling of Scipio's notions of the beginnings of Rome, which is also related from what Scipio learned under the tutelage of Cato. The following excerpt is from De Republica, Book II, 3, as per the Perseus Online Library version: Ita nunc mea repetet oratio populi originem; libenter enim etiam verbo utor Catonis. Facilius autem, quod est propositum, consequar, si nostram rem publicam vobis et nascentem et crescentem et adultam et iam firmam atque robustam ostendero, quam si mihi aliquam, ut apud Platonem Socrates, ipse finxero. Thus further, a translation with some commentary on it: "[S]o now I repeat the statement of the people's orign, for I am glad to also use the words of Cato. However easier, that it is of proposition, to attain, as if our 'own state'(1) were before you: and 'being naturally born'(2), and 'increasingly coming forth'(3), and . ...
