[edit] The Republic of Rome

Join host Joe Mantegna for a tour of the early years of the Roman Empire. Extensive on-location footage, ancient documents, and interviews with experts show how the early city overthrew the bonds of an Etruscan monarchy, defeated Carthage, and established the form of government that would lay the foundation for modern democracy.

[edit] The Age of Emperors

The ascendancy of Julius Caesar brought about the end of a republic and marshaled in an age of empire the likes of which the world had never seen. From the brilliance of Augustus and defeat of Marc Anthony to the sickness of Nero, renowned scholars peel back the layers of history to breathe new life into the personal legacies of these godlike men.

[edit] Building an Empire

Julius Caesar will forever be remembered as the leader who established Rome as the foremost power in the ancient world, and his successors extended its realm of influence even further.

[edit] The Enduring Legacy

In the early years of Christianity, the Roman Empire was indifferent to the movement that would ultimately contribute to its downfall. Soon it came to persecute the members of the new religion that swelled in its midst. But ultimately, the conversion of Constantine the Great paved the way for the triumph of Christianity in Western Civilization - and signaled the beginning of the end for the Empire. From the Cucifixtion of Jesus to the final flickering of Roman glory under Justinian, THE ENDURING LEGACY chronicles the decline of Rome and the rise of Christianity. See how the faltering Empire's power shifted to the East and the new capital of Constantinople, a move cemented by the plundering of Rome itself in 410 A.D. And examine the many ways in which the influence of the long-ago Empire is still felt today.
