Early Christianity

•The spread of Christianity was made a lot easier by the efficiency of the Roman Empire.•Over 30 years, Paul walked 10,000 miles around the Roman Empire, speading the word of Christ.•Despite its growing popularity, Christianity was sometimes misunderstood and membership could bring enormous risks.Some were crucified, some were thrown to wild animals and others were burned alive as living torches. •Nero's persecution of the new Christian sect was brief and, in the first century at least, was not repeated in other parts of the empire. •Over time, the Christian church and faith grew more organized, and 10 years later, it became the official religion of the Roman Empire.

Roman Mythology

As the Romans grew and conquered other lands they adopted things from other cultures they liked. An example of this would be the Greek gods-they adopted them, changed their names, and changed some stories to make them more Roman. Eventually they were able to act as if the gods have been their all along. Their 12 major gods were:Jupiter- King of the gods and lightningNeptune- god of the oceansPluto-god of the underworldJuno- Queen of the gods and fertilityApollo-god of sunDiana-goddess of huntMinerva-goddess of craftsVenus-goddess of loveMars-god of warVulcan-god of forgesBracchus-god of wineMercury-messenger godand Vesta-goddess of the homeYet Christianity ended up taking over and Roman mythology for the most part ended.
