Chapter Summary

This is an introductory chapter of Part Three Sulla, Religion, and the Empire of the book Sulla, the Elites and the Empire: A Study of Roman Policies in Italy and the Greek East. Lucius Cornelius Sulla did not just substantially contribute to the development of the empire in the Greek East and to the development of Roman Italy by winning wars and by compelling the local elites to redefine their attitude and position towards Rome. He also made a very significant contribution to the development of Roman imperial ideology: to the way in which the Romans made sense of their global power, and to the way in which the Greek world viewed the role of the Romans. The aim of this part is to explore the two sides of Sulla's approach to religion, and to show the importance that religion had in both contexts where he operated.
