1
00:03:05,750 --> 00:03:07,790
Two of the greatest problems in history

2
00:03:08,085 --> 00:03:10,638
are how to account for the rise of Rome

3
00:03:10,953 --> 00:03:13,758
and how to account for her fall.

4
00:03:14,090 --> 00:03:16,479
We may come nearer to understanding
the truth,

5
00:03:16,793 --> 00:03:18,484
if we remember that the fall of Rome,

6
00:03:18,764 --> 00:03:19,974
like her rise,

7
00:03:20,233 --> 00:03:22,916
had not one cause, but many.

8
00:03:23,235 --> 00:03:24,478
And it was not an event,

9
00:03:24,735 --> 00:03:28,848
but a process spread over 300 years.

10
00:03:29,241 --> 00:03:30,964
Some nations have not lasted as long

11
00:03:31,246 --> 00:03:33,034
as Rome fell.

12
00:03:33,313 --> 00:03:35,637
In the year 180 A.D.,

13
00:03:35,949 --> 00:03:37,672
the Emperor Marcus Aurelius,

14
00:03:37,950 --> 00:03:39,706
was leading his Roman legions

15
00:03:39,985 --> 00:03:47,143
against the Germanic tribes along
the Danube frontier.

16
00:03:49,263 --> 00:03:53,987
My lord, Caesar. The omens are bad.

17
00:03:54,436 --> 00:04:00,152
I could not find its heart.

18
00:04:03,742 --> 00:04:05,303
When I was a child, Timonides,

19
00:04:05,580 --> 00:04:07,522
I had a secret fear
that night would come

20
00:04:07,816 --> 00:04:09,725
and would never end.

21
00:04:10,020 --> 00:04:13,882
That we would live out our lives
in total darkness.

22
00:04:14,224 --> 00:04:16,875
It was a small fear then.

23
00:04:17,191 --> 00:04:18,139
Yet my lord, Caesar,

24
00:04:18,391 --> 00:04:19,635
the sun always rises,

25
00:04:19,895 --> 00:04:21,171
and will again.

26
00:04:21,430 --> 00:04:23,885
So you say.

27
00:04:24,199 --> 00:04:26,141
It is said more people die this moment

28
00:04:26,434 --> 00:04:30,362
when night is about to give way to day
than at any other time.

29
00:04:30,740 --> 00:04:33,642
It seems to me night whispers:
"Come away with me..."

30
00:04:33,976 --> 00:04:36,660
"to the west, and sleep forever."

31
00:04:36,979 --> 00:04:40,362
What has another day to offer you?

32
00:04:40,716 --> 00:04:44,294
What has another day to offer you,
Timonides?

33
00:04:44,656 --> 00:04:46,466
Warmth...

34
00:04:46,756 --> 00:04:48,316
Life...

35
00:04:48,591 --> 00:04:51,427
Color...

36
00:04:51,826 --> 00:04:54,663
People.

37
00:04:57,334 --> 00:04:58,611
My lord, Caesar,

38
00:04:58,870 --> 00:05:01,706
The sun.

39
00:05:07,211 --> 00:05:09,502
As you predicted.

40
00:05:09,813 --> 00:05:15,465
I congratulate you, Timonides.

41
00:06:15,149 --> 00:06:17,538
Timonides. Livius.

42
00:06:17,821 --> 00:06:18,235
Livius.

43
00:06:18,454 --> 00:06:20,723
How is Caesar?

44
00:06:21,022 --> 00:06:22,898
Well, in order to answer that question,

45
00:06:23,193 --> 00:06:25,233
one must consider three aspects of
the situation.

46
00:06:25,527 --> 00:06:28,746
One, our emperor has been
at the wars for 17 years

47
00:06:29,098 --> 00:06:31,073
and lived under
very difficult conditions.

48
00:06:31,366 --> 00:06:33,690
Two, no one could ever describe
Marcus Aurelius

49
00:06:34,003 --> 00:06:35,148
as a robust man.

50
00:06:35,370 --> 00:06:38,240
There's a joke among the soldiers here
about Timonides.

51
00:06:38,607 --> 00:06:40,517
They say: Ask Timonides what day
