PostSubject: Roman Religion   Sun Nov 22, 2009 4:19 pm

The Romans were polytheistic, meaning they worshiped many gods. These gods that were worshiped were taken from a variety of other religions and beliefs, and adapted to the Roman society. The two main influences to this religion came from Latin and Greek society. The Romans had hundreds of different gods that they would turn to in times of need to ask for help. The gods as a group was called the Pantheon.


Jupiter King of the gods, God of storms........................Juno, Queen of the gods, Jupiter's wife, and goddess of marrage

The glyph for Mars is the same as the one................Diana, Goddess of the hunt, and the moon
used to specify Male; God of War


When Constantine the Great was the ruler of the Eastern Roman Empire, he supposedly received a sign from God (of the Christian belief) before a battle. He won the battle, and turned Christianity into the religion of the empire.
