Why was roman punishment so harsh?

Uncivilised The Romans were uncivilised when it came to living. The rich Romans lived a luxurious life living in a in a big house. They had slaves to accomplish all of there needs. On the other hand, the slaves were all crammed into one room for the night. They were not treating them fairly. The Romans had a great way of entertainment, however, it was considered uncivilized because it threatened some people with possible death. It was called Gladiators. It involved 1 slave fighting against a lion or a similar animal which then ended in the slave dying.


Why were the punishments so bad?

Law and order was very harsh in Medieval England. It was believed that people would only learn how to behave properly if they feared what would happen to them if they broke the law. Even the 'smallest' offences had serious punishments.


Who gave out punishments and why in the middle ages?

Judgments and punishments varied by place and status. A vast majority of judgments were handed out by the assize - a group of knights traveling to various towns and cities to hold court, hear claims, and judge and punish those who broke the law. Because it was impossible for the king to hear every case, the knights, landholders he appointed and trusted, were assigned to judge people in his stead. The king's court primarily dealt with very high ranking nobles and foreign heads of state. The knights were wealthy land owners and while some were fair and honest, many times judgments could be skewed and fines or punishments did not fit the crime. This is why the Provisions of Oxford and later the Magna Carta required a jury of peers - a jury equal in rank and standing to the person accused. Larger towns might have a seneschal or autocrat who could also hand out judgments and punishments but if something happened that directly involved the seneschal or the high ranking person of the town, many times they would have to wait for the assize to make the circuit.


What did the Romans do to the iceni?

What is the idea of rule of law meant to the average Roman.?

For the average Roman the law meant punishment for crime or transgression of rules or a channel for litigation. Roman punishments were very harsh and hit particularly average people and the poor. Rich people got away with just a fine.
