But when Rome once again ruled the world, because of Christianity. They bassed their entire lives from the bible, I've coarse the laws are bassed on passages in the bible, otherwise when someone asked 'why is it wrong to steal?', they could reply with 'because the bible says so'. Though there may have already been a concept of laws, they adapted them to suit Christianity.
