with slave labor many people lost their jobs because slave were cheaper during this time this was a religion that was not well liked. they say whoever who believes in Christianity did not worship the emperor. Christianity was illegal in Rome for the longest time until 360 A.D when Theodosius came to the throne. this affected Rome because it was causing a big argument in Rome two years before his death, flavius Theodosius decided to split the roman empire into two, eastern and western Rome. Theodosius could not do this himself. so he had his youngest son Flavius Honorius rule the western empire when he was only nine years old. the reason this was an affect on Rome was because they became very separate and politically competitive. the first side of Rome to be conquered was the west side because they had a weaker military and not much money. Pictures in the late 300s the Romans were invaded by the Huns and the Visigoths. the Visigoths were very brutal people. they first attacked western Rome and got control of that first. by 450 A.D, all of Rome has been conquered. the roman empire officially fell in 476 A.D How Does it affect our world today? because of Rome, we now have a religion Christianity we still use today. there has been technology from the roman empire that we still use today. back then they studied mathematics, astronomy, biology and physics.
