the universe
based on logical
reasoning What is Stoicism? - It was the main
philosophy in
Ancient Rome. -It was originally Greek Roman Citizenship: -The Romans had a lot of
power over the countries
they conquered and citizens
lacked freedom Treason
(betrayal of country)=beheaded -Started in the Hellenistic
Period in Greece-dates to
around 300 BC/BCE and
moved to Rome in
155 AD/CE Roman Justice: -Roman defined justice
as the equality
between all citizens -This inspired the
creators of democracies

Law-core/focus of the
constitution of the
Roman Republic -Was written in 451 and
450 B.C. -Was written by 10

Plato, Socrates, and
others Roman Emperor
Affected by Stoicism -Marcus Aurelius -Known as a philosopher king -Known for
meditation -Was trained
in Stoic

Stoic beliefs -Ruled fairly according
to principles of
Stoicism -Last of good emperors,

harsh Similarities: Differences: -Voting

property and make contracts

The rights to vote in assemblies, run in private and public offices and jobs, to make contracts, and own properties, legal recognition, have lawful marriage, children who are born from parents that are Romans were considered Roman Citizens. Modern citizenship: The state of being vested with the rights, privileges, and duties of a citizen, you are considered a citizen if your part of the community or society. Countries that use
Roman law: -Many European countries
such as France use Roman
law as their basis -Main goal is interconnection
with the universe and with
nature -Has absolute laws that tell people
the reason and morality which
they are to live by -Founded by Zeno of
Citium -Inner Peace -Contentment -Living in harmony
with nature "All things are parts of one single system, which is called Nature; the individual life is good when it is in harmony with Nature." (Zeno, 4th Century B.C.) -Also influenced the US:
Roman Republic principles
of being in equal justice
under the law became part
of the US system -Roman Law has
been replaced
by modern codes
that still represent
the Ancient
Roman principles -rules of Roman Law which had been
transmitted, were placed in a statutory
framework which provided a modern,
systematic order -Roman legal and
formal rules have
great significance
on modern-day
nations, such as
in Europe Information Sources: http://www.law.berkeley.edu/library/robbins/RomanLegalTradition.html
