Ancient Religions

Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books about Ancient Religions.

Researchers and academics specializing in religious studies have posited the idea that people are moving toward the elimination of deistic figures. Indeed this argument is supported by the observation that ancient religions tended to be polytheistic, but as time went on, these systems of beliefs were supplanted by monotheistic religions. Ancient religions were the creation of people attempting to explain phenomena in their surrounding environment. The ancient Greeks and Romans believed in an intricate network of gods and mythical creatures, each with his or her own role in governing the natural world. In order to please the gods, the Greeks and Romans would sacrifice their possessions – and as stories detail, their family members.
