In Ancient Rome religion was very important to the people. As part of their daily routine they would honour their gods and goddesses, sometimes with offerings of valuable things or sacrifices of animals.

There were public temples to gods and goddesses all over the Roman Empire and every home had a shrine or room dedicated to the gods.

The Ancient Romans enjoyed many public holidays dedicated to their gods and goddesses and religious festivals.

The Ancient Romans worshipped many, many gods. They showed respect to gods that they encountered in their conquests.

As they learned of new religions the Ancient Romans would add them to the gods and goddesses they already worshipped.

Even Roman Emperors became Gods! Many Emperors of Ancient Rome were deified as gods, and worshipped by the Ancient Romans.

Jupiter (Zeus) was the god of the sky; ruler of the Roman pantheon, and considered by the Ancient Romans to be King of the Gods.
