Good morning friends today we are going to know a little of the Roman society, in the museum of the city of Santiago I found an incredible exhibition where they explained all the myths of the Roman society

Roman society was changing over time, always maintained the distinction between men and slaves, and the importance of being a Roman citizen with the duties and rights that were granted. Being a citizen in Rome was an honor and a privilege. The citizens had to fulfill the military service, it was the first step that had to give who initiated a political race. Rome reached its greatness and power, in part, thanks to the strength of its professional army organized around the legions, units of almost 5000 men, highly trained and very well equipped.



The family origins for the Romans were of great importance, since they granted patrimony and social prestige. Those men who descended from the founding fathers of Rome were called patricians and made up the aristocracy and the Senate, the institution of government responsible for foreign policy, finance and religion. The wealth of the patrimonies derived from the lands they owned, but their social status was also recognized in their right to hold political and religious positions

At the base of the social scale were the slaves. A man or a woman could acquire this condition by birth, by being a prisoner of war or also by a legal decision by not paying debt. Roman society contemplated the possibility of a slave being liberated.

Ancient Rome, which expanded by conquering territories and territories was characterized by the gods of the conquered to their official religion. The participation of patricians and commoners in official and public forums contributed to generating an important sense of belonging in the Roman community. It is a polytheistic religion, that is, with many gods, which are as a whole a complex, but organized in which often merge two or more gods in the same cult figure. This is how Rome absorbed the Greek gods who met Egyptian and even Persian deities, such as the sun god, Mithras.
