The Gods of Rome
  • The Rome thought of their gods as super-humans
    who made friends and quarrelled just like humans,
    but never died. They borrowed this ides from the
    Greeks and they took over some of the Greek gods.
    In the end they came to see the chief Roman gods
    and goddesses as the same as the Greek ones who
    lived on Mount Olympus and controlled all that
    went on in the world. They aimed to please them
    so that Rome and the Empire would do well and
    prosper.
