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.
In the home the Ancient Romans worshipped gods and goddesses who they believed protected their home and family. Gods and goddesses of other religions would also be worshipped.
The Romans, when they worshipped at a public temple would give gifts to the gods and goddesses. This was sometimes the sacrifice of an animal.
The Ancient Romans believed (like the Ancient Greeks) that if the gods were happy, then they would receive good fortune in return.
