The Civilization of the Greeks
Like the ancient Hebrews, the Greeks had a profound influence on Western Civilization. Unlike the river valleys of the Middle East, Greece is mountainous land, with human occupation occurring in the narrow valleys. The soil was poor, and the peoples of Greece early turned to the sea, notably the Aegean.
The first civilization in the region was non-Greek centered on the island of Crete. During the third millennium B.C. the Cretans, (or Minoans, from legendary King Minos), traded throughout the eastern Mediterranean. Commerce rather than military conquest governed the Minoans, as reflected in the wall frescos at Knossos. However, c. 1450 B.C.E. its civilization was destroyed, perhaps by natural disaster, probably through military conquest by the Greek-speaking peoples of the mainland.
The earliest Greek-speakers (Indo-Europeans) migrated into Greece c. 1900 B.C.E., and by c.1600 had established the first Greek, or Mycenaean, civilization (from one of its major cities, Mycenae). More war-like than the Minoans, the Mycenaeans dominated the Aegean world and beyond until they succumbed during the twelfth century B.C., possibly through invasions by new Greek-speakers from the north. A Dark Age resulted: civilization largely disappeared, an era as reflected by Homer’s epic poems, which established the heroic values for later Greek society.
With the end of the Dark Age (c. 800 B.C.E.) the era of the polis, or city-state, began. Most numbered a few thousand persons, although Athens at its height reached 300,000. The polis was governed by its citizens (free males). A military revolution broadened polis participation. Farmers fighting as heavily armed infantrymen–hoplites–replaced the aristocrat elite, and thus received a say in the governing of the polis. The two most famous city-states were Sparta, a militarized polis ruled by an oligarchy, and democratic Athens, in spite of the fact, like other poleis, slaves and women had no political rights. War between the poleis was endemic. The Persian War (499-479) temporarily unified the Greeks, who were victorious. At the end of the war, Athens created the anti-Persian Delian League, but converted the alliance into an empire. In turn, Sparta created the Peloponnesian League. Eventually, war broke out, and in the resulting Peloponnesian War (431-404), the entire Greek world suffered disastrously.
The fifth and fourth centuries was the classical era in Greece, especially in Athens, with the historians Herodotus and Thucydides, the dramatists Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes. The ideals of Greek art and architecture (e.g. the Parthenon) have survived to the present. Rational thought developed, and philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle posed questions which are still debated today. Religion and myth were important to most Greeks: the gods dwelt on Mt.Olympus, games were held in their honor, and oracles were consulted, notably at Delphi. Greece was no utopia, as slavery and repression of women was the norm, but its civilization was the fountainhead of Western culture.
The independence of the Greek poleis ended in the fourth century. The city-states continued to war against each other. In the north, the kingdom of Macedonia was waxing in power, thanks to able rulers like Philip II, who overcame Greek resistance at the battle of Chaeronea in 338. While planning to invade the Persian Empire, he was murdered in 336. He was followed by his son, Alexander the Great. In 334 Alexander led his army into Asia Minor. In Egypt, he built a city on the Mediterranean, naming it Alexandria. The Persian capitals of Susa and Persepolis fell by 330 B.C., and he reached India three years later. Still planning more campaigns, Alexander died in Babylon in 323 B.C. at age thirty-two, one of the ancient world’s greatest heroes as well as one its most enigmatic figures.
The resulting society is known as Hellenistic, or Greek-like. The Greek language became the international language, and Greek merchants, artists, philosophers, and soldiers found opportunities throughout the Near East, a world of kingdoms rather than city-states. Alexander’s empire soon divided into several states, ruled by his generals and their descendants. Commerce increased, and women often played significant roles in economic activities. Alexandria’s library contained 500,000 volumes. Sculptors and architects found many opportunities under the patronage of kings. In a break from Greece’s classic age, art was more realistic and emotional. It was a golden age for science, with Euclid’s geometry and Archimedes’ work on cylinders and spheres were revolutionary. The new schools of philosophy, such as Epicureanism and Stoicism, asked how one could find happiness in that larger and more complex world. The worship of the Greek Olympian gods declined, and numerous mystery religions that promised individual salvation became popular. Judaism remained the exception to the cults and civic religions. The Hellenistic world was a Greek-like world, but there were other influences in that cosmopolitan society, and much would have appeared foreign to earlier Greeks.

The First World Civilization: Rome, China, and the Emergence of the Silk Road
Italy, less mountainous and more fertile than Greece, bisects the Mediterranean, thus was positioned to dominate that inland sea. The Greeks to the south and the Etruscans to the north were early influences. In 509 B.C.E. the Romans established a republic. There were various magistrates, with two consuls at the apex. The Senate of 300 was not a legislature, but its advice came to have the force of law. Roman citizens were divided into two orders, the few patricians and the many plebeians. At the beginning the former had the power, but over time, through the Roman genius for political compromise, plebeians gained influence, including a plebeian assembly, the right to become magistrates, and intermarriage, but most of the advantages went to the richer plebeians. Rome was a republic, but one ruled by an oligarchy.
By 264 B.C.E. Rome was the master of Italy. Roman diplomacy was as important as its armies. Local autonomy was allowed and citizenship was granted to non-Romans. By the 140s Rome had become the master of most of the Mediterranean world. There was no imperial master plan. Its empire resulted from a combination of factors, including sheer opportunism. In the second century the traditional Roman values declined as affluence and individualism increased, and from 133 to 31 B.C. the Republic was in crisis. There were factional struggles within the governing oligarchy. The small farmer class, the backbone of Rome’s armies, had lost their lands to the wealthy. Attempts to solve the problems led to the shedding of much Roman blood. In 60 B.C.E., Pompey, Crassus, and Julius Caesar seized power. Caesar conquered Gaul (most of western Europe) during the 50s, and his subsequent dictatorship alienated the Senate, who murdered him on March 15, 44 B.C.E. Mark Antony, Caesar’s chief associate, and Caesar’s young adopted heir, Octavian, then formed an alliance, but Antony’s relations with the Egyptian ruler, Cleopatra, led to the breaking of the pact. At the Battle of Actium (31 B.C.), Octavian became the sole ruler of the Roman world. He did not declare the Republic dead or himself emperor. In 27 he accepted the title of Augustus, and rather than emperor he called himself princeps, or chief citizen. He followed the prescribed legal forms, and the Senate had a role in governing, but most of the authority was in the hands of the princeps. It was a Golden Age in literature with works by Virgil, Horace, Ovid and Livy. Religion and law permeated Roman life. Ritual was at the focus, for ritual established the correct relationship with the gods. Roman law was among its most enduring accomplishments. The early Twelve Tables was the civil law for Romans. As they expanded, a new body of law developed, the law of nations, for Romans and non-Romans alike. Finally, a system of natural law emerged, based upon reason and universal law.
In the second century five “good emperors” maintained the Pax Romana (Roman peace). The age of expansion was over. The army contained about 400,000 soldiers, ultimately too few to defend such a vast territory. The Early Empire was a prosperous era for many, but the gulf between the rich and poor was enormous, and bread and circuses were provided: 200,000 received free grain. However, the third century saw civil wars, German barbarian invasions, plagues, population decline, and economic collapse.
Christianity emerged in the first century. Jesus (d. c.30) preached the love of God and one’s neighbor instead of merely following religious laws. The Romans, fearing he was a rebel, executed him. His followers believed that he rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, and that he would return and establish the Kingdom of God on earth. Christianity, with its promise of salvation as a consolation to this life’s trials, and its universality as a religion for all–rich and poor, men and women, Greek and Roman–slowly gained acceptance. In the fourth century the Emperor Constantine (r.312-337) converted to Christianity, and by the end of the century it had become the religion of the majority.
The fifth century saw the decline and fall of the Western Roman Empire (the empire was divided in 395). With fewer resources, the West was less able to repel the barbarians. In 476 the last Western emperor was deposed, and numerous Germanic kingdoms replaced the western empire, although the Eastern Roman Empire survived for another thousand years.
In China, the Han dynasty followed the demise of the Qin, reigning from 202 B.C.E. to 221 C.E. Retaining many of the Qin institutions, the latter’s Legalism was modified by State Confucianism, and a civil service examination was instituted for government positions. The Han era was generally a period of prosperity, and silk was exported to the West along the Silk Road. The Han capital, Chang’an, rivaled Rome in magnificence. Han China began to decline in the second century. As in the Roman Empire, the population fell, barbarians invaded (the Xiongnu), and ambitious generals seized power. China would remain divided for the next four hundred years.
