Roderigo is upset because he loves Desdemona and had asked her father for her hand in marriage. Iago hates Othello for promoting a younger man named Cassio above him, whom Iago considers less capable a soldier than himself, and tells Roderigo that he plans to use Othello for his own advantage. Iago convinces Roderigo to wake Brabantio and tell him about his daughter’s elopement. Meanwhile, Iago sneaks away to find Othello and warns him that Brabantio is coming for him. Brabantio, provoked by Roderigo, is enraged and will not rest until he has beheaded Othello, but he finds Othello’s residence full of the Duke of Venice’s guards, who prevent violence. News has arrived in Venice that the Turks are going to attack Cyprus , and Othello is therefore summoned to advise the senators. Brabantio has no option but to accompany Othello to the Duke’s residence, where he accuses Othello of seducing Desdemona by witchcraft.
The landscape Site Situated at the northwestern end of the Adriatic Sea, Venice lies on an archipelago in the crescent-shaped Laguna Veneta Venice Lagoon , which stretches some 32 miles 51 km from the reclaimed marshes of Jesolo in the north to the drained lands beyond Chioggia at the southern end. On the sandbanks are many small settlements, some of them centuries old.
The best-known is the Lido itself, which has been a fashionable seaside resort since the 19th century. Terraferma Although Venice may aptly be regarded as an isolated sea city, it has always had close links with the surrounding marshlands and the mainland of northern Italy. The Venetian republic included the perimeter of the lagoon, the dogado, within its territory. From the 16th century onward, the Venetians invested heavily in the purchase, reclamation, and drainage of terraferma lands.

It was during this work that a crypt under the presbytery, which housed the remains of Saints Sergius and Bacchus, the church’s original dedicatees, was demolished, and the saint’s remains removed to a side altar.

Vitellius 69 The Roman Empire “officially” begins by tradition in 27 BC when Octavian receives the title “Augustus” — which then becomes the name by which we know him. We might think that the Empire, Imperium, begins with Augustus becoming Emperor, Imperator, but that is not the case. Imperator simply means “commander,” and this had long been in use with a specific meaning. An imperator was someone with a military command and imperium, which meant both military and civil authority in the area of his command.
This made Julius Caesar essentially the dictator of Gaul , once he had conquered it. That was dangerous, indeed fatal, for the Republic; but in those terms Julius Caesar began the creation of the Roman Empire already as an “emperor. It accompanies the institutional changes that were effected or completed by Augustus.
The institution thus created now gets called the “Principate,” from Princeps, “Prince” literally, “comes first”. The idea of the Principate is that the forms of the Republic are retained, and the Emperor superficially is simply still an official of the Republic.
