19 - Religion

from PART II
Summary
This chapter aims to determine the particular characteristics of Roman religion between 146 and 44 BC and set them against the long-established traditional religious rules of Rome. It explores the elements of continuity and change that together formed the distinctive pattern of religion in the late Republic. This exploration involves more than delineating a simple spectrum between the poles of 'continuity' and 'change'. The disruption of political and social life at Rome in the late Republic necessarily brought with it the disruption of religion. The geographical expansion of Roman imperial power underlies several of the most striking losses and adaptations in the Roman religious system. As part of Roman public life, religion had always been a part of the political struggles and disagreements in the city. Rome's political and military leaders had always enjoyed close relations with the gods. The earliest surviving and best-known Republican account of Roman religion from the pen of a Greek is that by Polybius.
