The culture of Greece had a powerful influence on the Roman Empire, which spread it through many of its territories in Europe. The civilization of the ancient Greeks has been enormously influential for language, politics, educational systems, philosophy, science, and the arts, giving rise to the Renaissance current of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries in Western Europe, and resurfacing during the neoclassical movements of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Europe and America.
