... his skills. The problem artists had back then was that only the very wealthy and the church would use their skills. He was forever trapped in that world. He worked for 13 popes in his life, and every time one died, he had to put the previous work aside to start work on what the new pope wanted. He considered himself a sculptor, not a painter, and he resented having to work on the Sistine Chapel's ceiling. Contrary to popular thought, he did not paint it while on his back. ...
... they could have other Gods) and in return they got civilization - roads built and water systems. The Romans were very good a building roads and cities. We also got some understanding on how the ideas of Christianity opposed the Romans. For example, Christianity was based on forgiveness; if your brother does wrong by you, you forgive them.
