Latin] A time of relative peace achieved by uniting the "known world" under one government. It is translated from Latin as "the roman peace," but the term is often loosely applied to other similar times in the past and to hopes for the future. Now an organization of governments is assumed necessary rather than one government.
A long period from Augstus to Marcus Aurelius when the Roman empire was stable and relativly peaceful. The rulers from this period were generally good and just. The direct English translation is" Roman Peace.
Pax Romana (27 BCE-180 CE), Latin for "the Roman peace", was the long period of relative peace experienced by the Roman Empire. The term stems from the fact that Roman rule and its legal system pacified regions, sometimes forcefully, which had suffered from the quarrels between rival leaders. It was Augustus Caesar who led Rome into the Pax Romana.
