I need help with a Writing question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
Choose one of the Roman gods from their pantheon, and describe how he or she was worshiped, including rituals and festivals associated with this deity. Include images (if available) of temples and shrines dedicated to this god, and the benefits Romans believed were derived from this worship.
Next, discuss how Christianity challenged and offered a viable alternative to traditional Roman paganism. Include in your post the elements of Christianity that might have been appealing to the average Roman, and those aspects that would ultimately lead to Christianity’s acceptance as the de facto “faith” of the Roman Empire.
