Allthing2all: Turning the world upset down

Last Saturday, Catez Stevens, writing in New Zealand in a blog with the title, The Pit and the Pendulum: Blogging and Popularity,, included this interesting observation.

“The Romans built the 1st century equivalent of a highway system throughout the Empire. It meant people could travel faster from one place to another, and therefore news, information and opinion travelled faster too. The Roman roads made it possible to travel to places that a person might previously never travel to. It became not only a faster track for merchants but an information highway and a means of cross-cultural encounters and communication.”

This highway system made possible the phenomenal growth of early Christianity.
