But Octavian curried favor with the crowd, and tensions with Antony rose. In the East and in Mauretania in North Africa, client kingdoms and principalities were allowed to exist, sometimes in very complex arrangements, as with the Tetrarchs in Palestine or the numerous lesser kingdoms that dotted the interior and eastern reaches of Asia Minor. On the whole, then, we should probably avoid notions of Roman "imperial policy" on the model of modern national policies. However, neither army was keen for war and negotiations produced an agreement instead, termed the "Pact of Brundisium." By means of this agreement, Antony ceded Gaul to Octavian, relinquishing his last foothold in the West, but was confirmed in the East. The bishops, from eighteen hundred pulpits, inculcated the duty of passive obedience to a lawful and orthodox sovereign; their frequent assemblies and perpetual correspondence maintained the communion of distant churches; and the benevolent temper of the Gospel was strengthened, though confirmed, by the spiritual alliance. A reshuffling of the provinces was required in light of the new situation: Antony got the East but retained Transalpine and Narbonese Gaul; Octavian got most of the West; Lepidus, fast being overshadowed by his more ambitious and ruthless partners, was effectively sidelined in Africa. 28 Antony's wars in the East: Dio.19-30; Plut.

The cathedral and bishops residence were located in the narrow center, close to the Senate and the secular government. Before his death, in 395 AD he appoints his son Arcadius as the ruler in the East, and Honorius as the emperor in the West. 31 From Octavian to Augustus: A New Order Established The third and final political reinvention of Augustus was about to take place. Despite his popularity in some circles, Sextus had been successfully cast as an enemy of the Roman people, the one who threatened them with famine and starvation by cutting off grain shipments. His autobiography Memoirs of My Life and Writings is devoted largely to his reflections on how the book virtually became add reading in essay his life. Here Octavian was named Augustus, a word ringing with religious (augur) and social ( auctoritas ) meaning but not suggestive of overt political dominance. That evening from dusk until far past midnight the delirious Nazi storm troopers marched in a massive torchlight parade to celebrate the victory.
