From the Paper:

"After the hopeless failure of the Gracchi Reform movement, the Roman Republic was disintegrated into innumerable pieces through the devastating blows of civil wars for nearly a year (Bushnell). Eventually, the empire gained its lost glory and swiftly transformed into a highly progressive country under the dynamic leadership and kingship of the Roman Emperor, the great nephew of Julius Caesar, Octavian. Caesar Augustus took the assistance of the religious traditions for the re-establishment and re-organization of the state (Bushnell). He laid considerable emphasis on the significance of moral, social and religious values and therefore hunted down every opportunity to initiate and practice moral reforms. For the restoration of Roman morals, the great king introduced a series of moral developments. His views on morality included commandments regarding adultery, un- chastity, and bribery. He also promoted the cult of emperor as divine by building a temple to the Divine Julius (Bushnell)."
