Thus, virtue ethics do not center the argument on breaking of any rules. Rather, they concentrate on the person’s image (Carden 17).

...Roman Empire There were various proceedings that led to the fall of the Roman Empire, a decline that took about 500 years. Most scholars view Christianity as one of the main reasons that led to its decline. Millions of people ruled by Rome lived hopeless lives where death was inevitable. Christianity taught them that there was life after death. The emperor, Constantine eventually converted to a Christian and assured his subjects protection. The people’s attitude changed from antagonistic to pacifistic and, as a result, their defense weakened and they were overwhelmed by the barbarian attackers (“IHA”).
