The paper explains that the fall of the Roman Empire has often been attributed to the rise of Christianity and the corresponding collapse of its moral infrastructure. Such moral iniquities as the regular stocking of prostitutes throughout Rome, even during the much lauded Pax Romana period, give credence to this argument. Yet, on the whole, it seems that the fall and collapse of the Empire conceivably had more to do with economics and the decay of its economic infrastructures rather than with any general decline in morality or with a rising influence of Christianity.
