Marbury v. Madison is considered a landmark case mostly because the court’s ruling a.established political parties. b.involved a future president of the United States. c.established the concept of judicial review. d.involved the court system.

Answer:

c. established the concept of judicial review.

Explanation:

Marbury v. Madison was a judicial process taken by the Supreme Court of the United States and solved in 1803. Before the negative of the new Secretary of State, James Madison, of giving William Marbury the appointment act for the position of Justice of the Peace, that was approved by the previous government, Marbury resorted to the Supreme Court to solve the case. Marbury did this under the 13th section of the Judiciary Act, which allowed the Supreme Court to deal with these cases. However, the judge John Marshall solved that, spite the Judiciary Act, the Court had no jurisdiction over this case because it went beyond the jurisdiction that the Constitution of the United States gave to the Supreme Court. It was a very important case because it was the first time that the Court established that a law approved by the Congress, specifically the 13th section of the Judiciary Act, was against the Constitution. Nowadays, this process is known as judicial review.

Which of the following is an effect that Constantine's conversion to Christianity had on the Roman Empire? A)Christianity soon became the official religion of the Roman Empire. B)There was a clash in Rome between Christians and non-Christians. C)Jews and pagans were persecuted in Rome. D)The Roman Senate turned against Constantine for his beliefs.

Answer:    A) Christianity soon became the official religion of the Roman Empire

Explanation:  Christians were persecuted in the Roman Empire before Constantine's conversion to Christianity. Since in the Roman Empire religion was polytheistic, that is, pagan, the pagans were not persecuted, nor did the Jews, even though they were under the authority of Rome . After Constantine, by passing the Milan Edict 313 AD, made Christianity one of the religions of the Empire, the persecution of the Christian stopped. Thus, Christianity is aligned with other religions and has not yet become the official religion of the Roman Empire. This was done by Emperor Theodosius 380 AD who proclaimed Christianity as the official religion of the Empire by the Edict of Thessalonica.
