Le siècle d’or de l’Empire Romain

Les resources antiques ne tarissent pas d'éloges sur los angeles dynastie des Antonins, qui régna de ninety six à 192 (il s'agit d'ailleurs de l. a. plus longue dynastie impériale. )

Les quatre premiers Empereurs de cette dynastie n'ayant pas european d'héritiers mâles, ils durent se résoudre à adopter leur successeur. Ainsi, le principe de filiation disparut pendant un temps, mais en contrepartie, les souverains s'assurèrent que leurs héritiers seraient des Empereurs compétents.

Sur les six Empereurs s'étant succédés, les cinq premiers furent surnommés les Cinq bons Empereurs ; le siècle au cours duquel ils ont gouverné fut appelé siècle des Antonins ou siècle d'or

The Überwasser Convent and its adjoining cemetery had already long since been intended as a weapons depot and place d’armes for an occurrence just such as this—the locality was perfect due to its many hiding places, its favorably disposed abbess, the proximity of the Frauentor (one of the city gates), and the arrangements which had undoubtedly been made with the now approaching bishop. Kerssenbroch—boarding at the home of the counterrevolutionary Old Believer, Dr. Wesling—is, as a young humanist, of course on the bishop’s side, moving out on this very evening along with his landlord, carrying the master’s weapons and ammunition, after which Wesling’s maid Assola, having been ordered to do the same, was caught by the Baptists and robbed of her cargo.

It was as great a problem for that old world of emperor and imperial estates as had been the Peasants’ War nine years earlier. Yet when an entire city closes itself off from the outside world for a full eighteen months, when it elects a foreign tailor’s apprentice with a checkered past as King of Zion and does so not only amidst the cheers of the rabble but also with the enthusiastic consent of craftsmen, the prosperous upper middle class, patricians, and even a few noblemen who happened to be in the city; and when finally this king—again, with the approval of great and small alike—turns all traditional values upside down, tears apart the moral fabric of the medieval bourgeoisie .
