This article suggests that the fall of Rome was due to a massive pelage that killed a large number of the Romans.  This theory could be a factor to the fall of Rome but it is probably not the only reason why Rome fell.

The map in this very interesting, it adds visual representation to the information. I was not aware that the city of Rome was sacked more the once.

vanessa ortiz's curator insight, April 19, 2014 10:03 PM

This article suggests that the fall of the empire was due to there being a new religion in the kingdom.  This could be a possibility because e people are not fawn of change.  Especially a change as big as religion would upset many people and make there rebel.

Many historians regard Western Europe, after the fall of the Roman Empire, as completely, a barren wilderness in the history of science. Contemptuously, they give medieval Europe the Dark Ages.

Via Lizmarie Lopez Cruz
Marymar Mendoza's insight:

It seems that right after the collapse of the Roman Empire, Europe fell into barbarianism and ignorance throughout the land, which is why they call this time the Dark Ages.

I enjoyed reading this article because it suggests a 15 reasons why the Roman Em[pre fell which I believe to be more realistic because there is never one single reason why.  There is always so,meting that lead to something that lead to something.

Marymar Mendoza's insight:

The fall of the Roman Empire seems to have been caused not only because of the war they lost against the barbarian attack but also because inside their empire troubles were unfolding. Lack of technology or labor as well as low economy could have also contributed to the fall of the empire.

Mario Murakami's curator insight, April 11, 2014 8:51 PM

Some say that the fall of the Roman Empire was due to Christianity. Christianity made people pacifists which  in turn caused the Roman citizens not to fight the Barbarians that overthrew the Empire. Also, money that was spent on churches could have been spent on something else more beneficial for the state.

David Arrieta's curator insight, April 12, 2014 2:49 AM

As stated in the article there were many reasons as to why the Roman Empire fell. Reasons that you would assume to be positive actually ruined everything for Rome. The mentality of the people had changed when they were introduced to christianity, the constant fighting for territory between neighboring cities, and dirty politicians.

David Arrieta's curator insight, April 18, 2014 4:54 PM

In this article it gives in depth reasons why the Roman Empire collapsed. From something specific such as the morality of the city state/cleanliness, to something more broad such as the economy, politics, and military spending.
