If you weren't talking out of your arse you'd know that Rome was a republic, which is different to a Democracy.You have no cooking clue about history mate...Romans not a democracy???Have you not heard of the republic or Senate? Funny you mention that savages stay as tribes, the Celts and the Britons were drinking each other's blood and living in Mud huts before the Romans arrived, however the Romans brought roads and castles/forts. The Briton tribes were the ultimate savages? Do you think they still are considering savages and have stayed a tribe?
And who gave the Monarch's God's grace was it not the Pope? What started the English reformation? Was it not Henry Tudor that refused to follow the Pope's instruction. Read up on your own history before making claims.
Ask Galileo, about not condemning scientists....
Further more I'll repeat my previous statement about them being anti democracy, read up how the Catholic Church decreed the magna carta herecy, and the Pope proactively supported Monarchies over any democratic government.
Additionally there's a reason that their time of greatest influence is called the dark ages, thank goodness we had the Renaissance and reformation to propel our civilization forward...
Was "Funny you mention that savages stay as tribes, the Celts and the Britons were drinking each other's blood and living in Mud huts before the Romans arrived, however the Romans brought roads and castles/forts." meant to prove me wrong because all it did was prove my point.
What does "The Briton tribes were the ultimate savages? Do you think they still are considering savages and have stayed a tribe?" even mean?
Yes, the Briton tribes were savages and they were tribal until the Romans brought civilisation to them.
"who gave the Monarch's God's grace was it not the Pope?" You said the Pope "manipulated" Monarchs but now you agree that the Monarchs legitimacy stems from the Pope?
Because I don't know how to interpret that any other way.
What started the English Reformation? Heresy.
"Read up on your own history before making claims." I know my history, thank you.
I have the Oxford Companion to British History right here, feel free to borrow it anytime.
About Galileo, https://www.catholic.com/tract/the-galileo-controversy , go to Clinging to Tradition?.
You seem to think being anti-Democracy is a bad thing.
The Romans weren't Democratic and many great civilisations weren't.
Because Democracy isn't the ultimate form of government and is deeply flawed.
"there's a reason that their time of greatest influence is called the dark ages"
"The Dark Ages is a term often used synonymously with the Middle Ages. It refers to the period of time between the fall of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the Italian Renaissance and the Age of Discovery. Many textbooks list the Dark Ages as extending from 500-1500 AD, although it should be noted these are approximations.
The term 'Dark Ages' was coined by an Italian scholar named Francesco Petrarch. Petrarch, who lived from 1304 to 1374, used this label to describe what he perceived as a lack of quality in the Latin literature of his day. Other thinkers came along and expanded this designation to include not only literature, but also culture in general. The term thus evolved as a designation for the supposed lack of culture and advancement in Europe during the medieval period.
The term generally has a negative connotation. Debate continues to rage among historians over whether the Middle Ages were, indeed, dark or not. Increasingly, many scholars are questioning whether the term Dark Ages is an accurate description or not."
