Roman religion with a history that goes back to the early 1st millennium
BC. It can be traced back but only at the turn in the third century B.C. It
is part of the ancient polytheistic tribal and folk religions with a
variety of ceremonies to maintain the given natural and social order (in
contrast to confessed religious beliefs that focus on the goal of
individual salvation like Christianity).
In comparative studies of religion there is a distinction drawn between the
so-called sacrifice religions and the religions of salvation which includes
the Roman Reconstructionism <https://www.imperivm-romanvm.com/> clearly
belonging to the first category. Their practice as a mandatory state cult
of the Roman Empire came to an end at the time of their emergence in the
late 4th century when they were able to implement the laws of tolerance in
favor of Christianity. She disappeared at the turn of the 6th century.

nature , and its desire to protect the Pax deorum (the divinely-ordained
peace order) had, at first, unlike other religions, such as the Greek
religion, from which it distinguished itself greatly an anthropomorphic
pantheon which gods who lived in real human form.

The unapproachableand in the sense of "clever" deities of Rome were also
obscure because they had no original or only a weakly developed Roman
mythology to their personal. Although the Romans also knew their gods
personally and gave them their own wishes, the deity as such generally
remained a distant second to the divine will.

the case since the 2nd century BC.

creatures and in all the natural and social process and actions, so that
the Roman world frequently used terms that were derived from the Roman
world of values, such as aequitas concordia ("unity") and honos ("honor '),
libertas ('freedom'), mens ('spirit'), salus ('salvation'), spes ('hope'),

The religion

On the one hand, the Romans associated the term religion with the
word"religare" (note something that was previously); on one hand, the
seemingly possible derivation of religare (reunite)[3is known in the
imperial period, especially in the Christian environment. In the second
scenario, religio means the person's personal connection to a transcendent
authority ("God") In the first instance, it is the conscientious observance
of traditional rituals of cult that establish the relation between humans
as well as the "sacred" area. The gods' external contact had the mutual
character of dout des ("I give in order that you can give"): one fulfilled
all ritual obligations punctually and also did something for gods, so that
they themselves did not have to be above the norms of society however,
these bonds provided some reward. With no absence of an inner religion or
understanding of religion as the sum of common cult practices which bound
gods and gods alike, prevailed throughout the pre-Christian age.
