The Lost Civilization of Man

The Colosseum


Ancient Roman civilization was formed from the 8th century BC on the Italian Peninsula. It was spread beside the Mediterranean Sea with capital city of Rome. In the first and second centuries, ancient Rome became one of the greatest ancient empires

In the year 72, the Emperor named Titus in the eastern part of Rome completed and constructed the magnificent monument that his father had begun. The building we know today is called the Colosseum

Colosseum is one of the world's top tourist attractions in Italy and the largest castle in Rome. It has an architectural, engineering, and also a very fascinating past that has now become a symbol for Italy and Rome. The Colosseum auditorium has witnessed bloody executions and bloody battles of gladiators with each other or with wildlife. In fact, the executed were eaten by wild animals in the Colosseum to make the spectators and the emperor entertained.

It is interesting to note that many of the people who were killed by gladiators or animals on the pitch of the audience were Christians. That's why the Colosseum land is valued and sacred to Christians.  It is so valuable for the elders of Christianity that Pope Pius III ordered all the sand that were cast on the floor of the Colosseum, because they are drowned in the blood of the martyrs..

Christians were still harassed by the Roman emperors until the emperor named Constantine entered the war in 312 with 40,000 troops with Maxentius. Constantine believed that his triumph over Maxentius was the sign of the unceasing help of Jesus Christ. During his reign, he stopped chastising Christians.    He banned the Mithraism, which was the main religion of Rome, and chose Christianity as the official religion of the empire.

It is interesting to note that Mitra or Mithraism, the god of ancient Persia and the oldest religion, were later expanded to other parts of the world.

Over time, this building faced many natural disasters, In 217 AD, a huge fires took place in Rome, and the colossus was greatly damaged, and almost all of its high levels of wood were destroyed and fueled
