Chapter Summary

To enjoy any kind of substantial run historically Empire must effectively combine brute force and military might with a rhetorical and philosophical structure that explains and extols expansion and rule. In the transition from Republic to Principate the necessary trappings of empire appear with force and frequency. Archaeologically a structural and monumental transition is easily observable across a very wide geographical range; in Spain, in Narrona, in Croatia at Pula, in Gaul at Nîmes, Athens and Asia Minor, Syria and the Hauran, as well as Judea and Galilee. The physical changes associated with the early empire carried undeniable messages about power and the locals place within the Roman imperial order. Rome fixed her eyes on Parthia about forty years earlier, in 92 B.C.E., when Sulla reached the Euphrates.

Keywords: Galilee; global empire; Roman imperial order
