Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
Each episode of Rome: Power and Glory charts a chapter in the growth of one of the world's greatest empires. Covering over two million square miles and standing for nearly 1,300 years, the Roman Empire was crucial in determining the future direction and stance of the great empires that would follow her. Through the use of computer graphics, careful research, and re-creations, the lives of those who lived under the aegis of Rome spring to life. This particular episode focuses on the dissent raised by the Romans who protested the slide of the Empire into decadence. Coincident with this feeling was the rise of Christianity, and, of course, intensive efforts by the Empire to suppress the new religion. This episode is narrated by Peter Coyote.
