Reflection Questions
  • Compare religious practices between Roman and other societies. State, in your own words, the Roman’s understanding of piety. Which practices in other religions compared to the Roman concept of piety? How so?


  • Based on your understanding of the non-Western world, what parallels do you see between Roman society and government and today’s developing nations? How would this knowledge shape your Christian message to these people?


  • What contribution did Roman religion make to the world that facilitated the spread of the gospel?
