This week you are going to find out about the religious beliefs the Romans had and some of the god and goddesses they worshipped. Today, you will carry out part one of two lessons.
In the earlier Roman times, the Roman people believed in many different gods and goddesses whom they believed controlled different aspects of their lives. They did not have a central belief system of their own as such, but rather borrowed gods, rituals and superstitions from a number of sources and adapted them to suit their own needs. The Romans believed in good and bad omens and they performed many rituals in the hope of receiving good luck. Prayer and sacrifice was important and the Romans held festivals every month to honour the gods. They would worship their gods and goddesses at temples.
