The ancient Roman religion was based on a complex system of gods and goddesses, but they were also worshipped by many different groups and were often interlinked, according to researchers.
Researchers say the gods of ancient Rome were based on the beliefs of the Greco-Roman world and were not created by the Romans.
But the ancient Romans also believed in a number of gods, including Poseidon, the god of the sea.
They also worshipped a number other gods, according the research, including Dionysus, the patron of love and fertility.
And while some of these deities may have been the creations of the Romans, they were believed to be connected with the gods in a deeper sense, said lead author Professor Paul Wiggin, from the University of Queensland.
“In the Roman world they were often connected with other deities, with the goddesses,” Professor Wigin said.
“It’s a very diverse array of gods that you can identify with.”
So, you can think of them as gods who have a common source of inspiration.
“We can see the idea that they have a shared religion that they’re all connected with, which is an important part of ancient Roman thought.”
Dr Wigintin said the ancient Roman god of love was often associated with a river or lake.
“One of the things that is very striking is that in the ancient world, there was a huge variety of rivers and lakes that they worshipped,” he said.
“The rivers and the lakes were associated with the god Dionysos, the river god.”
This is where you see the concept of Dionysia.
“Dr Adam Rechtshaffen, a professor of ancient history at the University at Albany, said the Roman gods of love were sometimes described as “pale, cold and dead”.”
One might say that the Roman god is a river god,” Dr Rechstenshaffn said.
