Decline of Roman Empire In this essay I will argue that Germanic invasions wars and Christianity contributed to the decline of the Roman Empire I will prove this by taking you the reader through a series of events Then I will explain what changed and what didnt during this time By explaining both sides it will be obvious why these things caused the fall of the Roman Empire The Roman Empire was going through serious change Diocletion an army officer was emperor Diocletion realized that the empire was too large for one emperor and would only cause the empire to remain unstable So he divided the empire into four parts Each part had a leader called a tetrarchy This made the empire more stable After Diocletion Constantine became emperor Constantine made a tax system He passed laws to keep inflation down made it governors responsibility to get taxes made all job hereditary and made fixed prices Constantine changed the rulers wardrobe to a purple robe and crown People were to praise him in his presence by bowing down He did this to remind people that he was the boss Constantine also persecuted Christians He was afraid Christians would not be loyal to the empire because they refused to worship the Roman gods It did not matter if you worshiped other gods as long as you worshiped the Roman gods too For Christians this was a problem because they were only to worship one god During Constantines reign the Germans started to push their way into the Roman Empire because the Huns were chasing them The Romans called the Germans barbarians because they were different They greased their hair in shapes wore pants and spoke Germanic The Germans became a threat They were destroying land and invading cities They were also Christians The Germans were successful in doing this because the Romans could not support army or the protection they need Nothing was kept
