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 or sacrifices.
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.
Christianity was first followed mostly by slaves and the poor in Ancient Rome.
Believers in Christ, were persecuted because they refused to acknowledge any other God than their own.
Christians were persecuted until the time of the Emperor Constantine, in the 4th Century, who himself converted to Christianity.
The Pliny Letters, and Pliny's correspondence to Emperor Trajan, discuss the persecution of Christians in Ancient Rome.
