On Empire

130- About the Empire

 

1-How should these empires be remembered? The nature of official and poupular memory depends to some extent on the length of time that has elapsed since an empires´s disappearance and whether it has left any inheritors. The Roman Empires, both in its western and eastern from, was so completely destroyed, and destroyed so long ago, that it has no inheritor, though the mark it has left on the world, even outside the area it once occupied, is enormous.
