The Most Evil Men and Women in History - Episode Nine - Nero (2002) (380p)

368 ratings | 118579 views
Nero's cruelty, violence and grotesque appetite for self-indulgence brought the Roman empire to the brink of financial and political ruin. He is known for a number of executions, including those of his mother and stepbrother, and as the emperor who "fiddled while Rome burned", and as an early persecutor of Christians. http://thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&seriesid=84623&seasonid=39512&id=425652&lid=7

Interesting pronunciation of Boudicca. They say "Beau-de-see-a", which is how you pronounce it in some places (like Ireland apparently), but this show is American and I thought they used the English pronunciation (Boo-dick-ah) - especially as the Iceni were from what is now modern day Norfolk, England from my understanding. And in Canada we usually just say "Boo-dick-ah or Beau-de-see-ah" just to make sure everyone is on the same page about who we're discussing.

Did you know many of the Early Church father expected Nero to come at the end of time and become the Antichrist and he would wage war on Christianity and put Christians to death?They believed the first persecutor of the church would be the last.

Many of The Early Christian writers expected Nero Claudius Caesar to come down at the end of time and he would arise out of The Bottomless Pit in Revelations 9 and become the Antichrist and put Christians to death and The whole world would pay sacrifices to him.

I'm glad you asked that. Roman soldier training focused more on obeying everything the emperor said than it did on practicing fighting.

because in that time you thit not know everything about nero . and if you had any form of informetoin about him . than how would you  know its true . so its easer to just follow and believe that wat you do is good . because if its not good than its bad . so most poeple do not wanne be bad . so they do not think about it .

+ivanovic sharapova yes I believe the same thing. the usa used to be a country based on Christian values but in 1960 when prayer was taken out of school we have been walking away from god. now it's only a matter of months or years until we're taken off the earth by fire (since god said he will never destroy the earth with water ever again, so I believe we will be bombed.) but I'm not worried since I know where I'm going when it's all done lol. maybe that's gods way of taking care of the Christians in the usa (by not letting us suffer and bringing us to heaven fast....) that's why I will try to spread the word in the usa until it's time for us to go. hey just remember me when I'm gone;)

I thought the anti Christ hasn't arrived yet. Why is it mentioned here?
ivanovic sharapova (2 years ago)
there is 2 seeds in the world humans and none humans which was of course the woman and the serpent 2 diff kinds on earth and Israel was the seed of the woman while the other nations were not, today we are mixed but from time to time entities rise up but the main ones are the linage mentioned 7 and the last one would be out of the 7 remember revelation, 5 have fallen (nimrod, pharaon of exodus, senaccherib forgot the name of the one of the times of amos lol) then says one is ( nero) then another shall rise but for a short time of period (hitler) so there you have them and there will be one more the last one the one that is healed and everyone followed and worship thinking he is or returned King of Kings Yeshua
Balling Like Choji (2 years ago)
fallen angels are not human and as a result aren't bound by human trappings, so yes the anti Christ has been pulling the strings of discord on earth for a long long time. remember he tried to tempt Jesus on his trek through the desert, you could even go as far back as the snake in the garden for proof that he has been among us since conception. But feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Since all negative accounts come from two sources like Suetonius born two years after Nero died (Nero died 68 CE, Suetonius born 70 CE), and Tacitus born in Gaul 57 CE so he was only 11 years old living far from Rome by the time Nero died. And since the Senate was the entity that overthrew Nero they also appointed Vespasian as replacement, in doing so they all needed something to remind the vulgar (the masses) to what happened, Vespasian needed to cement his new family dynasty to rule. Tacitus a senator working for Vespasian, and Suetonius an equestrian (knight aka toady) for whoever was in power. So it's very one sided and likely very exaggerated. As well as somethings are self contradictory (Nero was spending too much on building his own mansion and other burnt parts of Rome, yet Vespasian spends even larger fortune building the Flavian amphitheater aka coliseum). And some of Nero's ideas was to lower taxes in provinces and place an audit on incoming revenue. This pissed the nobles at the senate, governors, and all other patricians off. Whatever did take place, we can be assured the victors over the prior generations have successfully destroyed the exactness of what really happened. Some of the commentary seems so ridiculous it's likely made up, and the evidence surrounding the commentary points to motive and impossibility to have actually know the stuff, and coincidentally the accounts of the one never alive during the time with a bigger ax to grind has more heinous acts than the preceding written accounts from Tacitus which are milder and fewer. The accounts of people not able to leave watching his acting in a theater that they would give birth, commit suicide by jumping, or playing dead is something so ridiculous exaggerated it's comic, like something out of Mighty Python, the rumors were actually from Suetonius about the fire being caused by Nero, most completely disagree with this because evidence of other writings demonstrate that public spaces were open as well as accounts of fighting the fire from many prefects. Also since original manuscripts don't exist the addition about scapegoating by torturing Christians was likely an addition in the surviving manuscripts which were 1000 CE, was common to later find original ancient texts and find that reference copies that additions were added to fit the situation, and its obvious because many additions are added in on top of words and in the margins. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1d/MII.png Basically, all the data we have is unreliable to really say all the things happened. And much makes no sense at all. If any scapegoats were used, it would have been Jews from Judea because the unrest that eventually ended in sacking of Israel a few years after Nero's death by the new emperor Vespasian and his son. The unrest in Judea would be similar to unrest in the Middle East today by Islamic extremists. I dislike how they take these reports that are likely bogus and conclude they're fact or they themselves start adding stuff into what is already sloppy unreliable stories.

Good example of how the Roman Empire was after the fall of the republic.
Nounismisation (3 years ago)
That blue eyed bust we keep seeing; is that a genuine period representation of Nero? Only most other busts from that time have lost their eye-paint. The statues of most Roman dignitaries were merely a body with a slot for interchangeable heads, so it might be that this is a bust of Nero that was placed somewhere that the eyes did not corrupt. I hope so, because otherwise it's misleading TV disingenuousness. Which is it?

Michael Greenwood (1 year ago)
To S.Feline He was sentenced by the Roman senate to die as a slave by flogging and crucifixion. His term as Emperor was over. All Rome was ordered to kill him as an Enemy of Rome. No Roman was permitted to give him refuge. He was still married to his equally dis-Empressified same sex castrated male wife. Or his 2nd male same sex marrige, The first was still alive as was one of his other wives. As an Emperor he could indulge in some privilege such as having a wife imprisoned on fake charges. But as a deposed Emperor he could not. So he was stuck married to his former same sex empress who he had had casturated. To a homosexual sodomitic anal bugger what use was a same sex wife with out a dick. Nero had had the guys dick cut off by order. Not to the guys volentary agreement. Nero no longer had power over the person who he basically had destroyed to his life's end. A marrige therefore not to some one who loved him. But to someone forced. But as the tables had turned. Nero couldn't go to the courts for a divorce. Murder was then a crime for Nero. So he was stuck as a fugitive with a castrated growing bloke as a wife. How was Nero to resolve his problems? You think Nero was a brave hero? Rome didn't. Rome hated and rejected him.

At 17m 25s this documentary refers to Nero as the Anti-Christ of the Bible's Book of Revelation (Rev 13:18). However, Nero only fits a partial description or match for this 'beast power'. More accurately it is the beast (kingdom) that evolves from Rome and continues for at least 1260 years. This latter beast power was even more brutal towards Bible believing Christians than Nero; especially during the Spanish Inquisition and the great purges of Protestant Christians throughout this Anti-Christ's continuing reign. WARNING - thinking & open research required. Meaning requires context. When a fact is taken out of context, it can mostly lose that meaning. Some say the 666 thing pertains to carbon atom, hence oil, some say Nero. But what is the TOTAL fit of ALL the pieces in this jigsaw? The number 666 is mentioned only ONCE in the Bible. It is used as one of many identifiers of a 'particular prophetic beast'. What is a prophetic beast in Biblical terms? The Bible ALWAYS interprets itself, if so, where in the Bible is the definition of a 'beast' found? In Daniel 7:17, it is written, "These great beasts, which are four, are FOUR KINGS, which shall arise out of the earth." Further on in Dan 7:23 it states, "The fourth beast shall be the FOURTH KINGDOM upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces." Many Biblical clues refer to this 666 beast, yet this number is only mentioned once. It is foretold in Biblical prophecy that this beast it will "think to change times and laws"; that it will rule a greater part of the world for 1260 years, and appear to suffer a "deadly wound" but then live again, when ALL the world starts to "wonder after the beast". There's nothing 'relative' about it either, as there IS ONLY ONE solution for this multi part jigsaw puzzle. Another clue for e.g. is that this 666 beast that deceives even "the elect", i.e. those that think they know, most likely because they follow "the traditions of men" & refuse to heed Biblical clues. ALL pieces of a jigsaw puzzle must fit on all sides with ALL other pieces to reveal the true picture. Also, if this 666 beast is worshiped, that would imply this kingdom &/or king is a religious kingdom &/or king. And so it is. Christian Protestant SCHOLARS clearly identified the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) as 'the BEAST' of Rev 13:18. "Here is wisdom, let he who has understanding COUNT the number of the beast (kingdom) for IT IS (also) the number of a man & his number is 666." Here's the correct/ Biblical interpretation using Roman numerals - if you've got to count something try this method first: I = 1, V = 5, X = 10, L = 5, C = 100, D = 500, M = 1000. Note U is a modern Latin letter = V = 5. It also works (if you have understanding) in Greek & Hebrew. Understand a beast in prophecy = kingdom or king, see Dan 7:17. A) Italian for "Number one clergy" is DUX CLERI 500+5+10 + 100+50+0+0+1 = 666 B) Italian for "Vicar [intercessory] of the family of God" is VICARIUS FILII DEI 5+1+100+0+0+1+5+0 + 0+1+50+1+1 + 500+0+1 = 666 C) Italian for "King of Roman Priests" is REX LATINVS SACERDOS 0+0+10 + 50+0+0+1+0+5+0 + 0+0+100+0+0+500+0+0 = 666 And that's just 3; but there's more in Latin, & if one also decrypts this 'beast' using Greek & Hebrew there's 14 perfect matches in all (that I know of) for the same kingdom, and king of this kingdom.

"All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."  Do you think the inspired Word of God meant "all" when the writer wrote "all"?
edydon (3 years ago)
+cr4zyu Protestants have not behaved any better than Catholics. How many Protestant ministers went along with the Nazis, and the center of Evangelical Protestantism, the South, was also the center of Jim Crow racism. I'm not defending heinous actions by Catholics, but those acts were because of human evil, not Catholic evil.
