When studying Roman history during the first century BC, one of the prominent events mentioned is the second Catilinarian conspiracy, wherein Catiline seeks to overthrow the Roman Republic through a scheme but is prevented by Cicero, who denounced Catiline through his four orations and eventually executes five members of Catiline's conspiracy without due process. Was this event a symptom of the political instability during the 60s BC in Rome, or was this an event a cause of political instability (cause vs symptom)? How influential was this event in the fall of the Roman Republic?
