Roman Religion

May 4, 2007

…as if it were written about modern western secular societies:

“The various modes of worship, which prevailed in the Roman world, were all considered by the people, as equally true; by the philosopher, as equally false; and by the magistrate, as equally useful.”

— Edward Gibbon, The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.  Chapter 2.
