Introduction Rome and her empire had a profound effect on New Testament. That effect was far more than most people realize. Much of the very nature of the society in which the events take place is because of the presence and governance of Rome. Paul and his ministry were profoundly affected by Rome and the Roman military.

The Roman army changed over time. The consuls had the power to recruit troops, but in the last years of the Republic, provincial governors were replacing troops without the approval of the consuls.

This led to legionaries loyal to their generals rather than Rome. Before Marius, recruitment was limited to citizens enrolled in the top 5 Roman classes. The Roman army was under command of an imperator, here second highest officer was the quaestor, who served as chief-of-staff and quartermaster general; this position in the Gallic War is filled by Marcus Licinius next rank of officers were the legati, men of senatorial rank who were often used as legion commanders by Caesar.

At least a detachment also stayed in Burnum, Illyricum where their stamped tiles have been found. Around 45 under Nero, the VIII Augusta took part in the suppression of the Thracian.

Like most professional armies, the Roman legions used military decorations to acknowledge superior behavior. Though few looked like medals as we picture them today, these awards fulfilled the same function, acting as material symbols of pride and of the recognition given for great deeds.
