In the second century of the christian era, the empire of Rome comprehended the fairest part of the earth and the most civilized portion of mankind. The frontiers of that extensive monarchy were guarded by ancient renown and disciplined valour. The gentle, but powerful influence of laws and manners had gradually cemented the union of the provinces. Their peaceful inhabitants enjoyed and abused the advantages of wealth and luxury. (English)
Au second siècle de l’ère chrétienne, l’Empire romain comprenait les plus belles contrées de la terre et la portion la plus civilisée du genre humain. Une valeur disciplinée, une renommée antique, assuraient les frontières de cette immense monarchie. L’influence douce, mais puissante, des lois et des mœurs avait insensiblement cimenté l’union de toutes les provinces : leurs habitans jouissaient et abusaient, au sein de la paix, des avantages du luxe et des richesses.
