Are you guys fucking retarded?

It's the space Dark Ages and middle ages.
Exactly what happened after Rome.
Rome collapsed, power more or less decentralized and then re-centralized in a papacy that rose in the same region.
Feudalism, monarchy are rampant
War is constant
In many ways, Roman technology was better
Enemies from afar (the Golden Horde, Muslims)
etc etc

The comparisons are all there.

Wasn't the idea behind the Holy Roman Empire that it was basically a second Rome that had dominion over all of (Catholic, European) Christendom?

That was Charlemagne's grand plan at least.

Well plus they had all these warlords (We'd call them Barons or Dukes) who had power and really didn't want to give it up. That kind of scuppered the whole thing. And then they fought endless wars amongst themselves, until you wound up with the Westphalian nation states, who then fought endless wars amongst themselves for supremacy until Nuclear weapons and the Cold War put an end to it.

Truthfully? Well it really depends on which group you hang out with:

Spacemarines = everything is middle ages
Rouge traders = everything is 1700s white whigs
Imperial Guard = everything is WWI or WWII
Arbiters and Hiveworlders = everything is 1980s cyberpunk

I still haven't figured out what the inquisition is supposed to be though...

how about the inquisition = the inquisition

>>12173643

This architecture disappeared largely because of the lack of knowledge of how to construct and maintain.

Lost over generations of course.
