Le siècle d’or de l’Empire Romain

Les assets 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 los angeles 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

As the Sarajevo crisis reached its climax at the end of July, the Labour Party took a vigorous share in the agitation against war which was sponsored throughout Europe by the Socialist International.

P. leaders naturally found it particularly obnoxious, and they began to talk of leaving the party. P. candidates for the Executive. . If a split were to come owing to the oppressive use of the block vote of some of the larger unions, I would do what I could to form a new Labour combination for political purposes. 3 As it happened, however, - or was this Henderson's deliberate stage-management? - the proposal had only come up after the election of the Executive members for the following year; and by 1918, as we shall see, the political situation had entirely changed, so that the use of the block vote became far from 'oppressive', at least in the sense that MacDonald wished to imply.

When in 1 g08 Henderson became chairman, therefore, he was not without experience. But Hardie regarded him with grave suspicion as being little more than a Liberal. P. colleague Bruce Glasier at the end of Henderson's first year of office: I suppose we are in for another year of Henderson's chairmanship, which means that reaction and timidity will be in the ascendancy with disastrous effects to our side of the movement in the country. I grow weary of apologising for a state of things for which I am not responsible and with which I have scant sympathy.
