Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Caput Mundi is a Latin phrase taken to mean "capital of the world." It originates out of a classical European understanding of the known world: Southern Europe, North Africa, and Southwest Asia. Because of the enduring power of the Roman Republic and Roman Empire, and the Roman Catholic Church, in this sphere, the city of Rome has been known for centuries as Caput Mundi. Rome's influence in the ancient world began to grow around the 2nd century BC as the Republic expanded acrossSouthern Europe and North Africa. For the next five centuries, Rome would govern much of the known world. Thecultural influence of the local language of Rome (Latin) as well as Roman art, architecture, religion and philosophywas immense.show more
