Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

All these things I will give to you: The political rise of the individual in ancient Rome
by Nierle, Joshua, M.A., Regent University, 2016, 43; 10111391
Abstract (Summary)

Despite myriad causes given to the end of Republican Rome and the beginning of Imperial Rome, there still remains a basic truth: the form of political rule and the institutions that structured this rule changed in the span of about a hundred years, from Sulla’s first armed takeover in 88-87 B.C. to Augustus’s death in 14 A.D. After Sulla, the political institutions of Republican Rome became a façade; within a couple of generations they were a farce. I argue in this paper that the effect of the individual on this loss of institutional inviolability is vital to understanding both how it happened and what came after.
