Introduction   By:  Ohana  Garcia-­‐Isgut   The  Roman’s  Religion  was  based  on  Greek  and  Latin   religions.  It  has  many  of  the  same  gods,  and  goddesses  as   the  Greek’s,  but  their  names  are  different.     The  Romans  were  very  superstitious  and  had  many   sacrificial  ceremonies,  and  oracles.     Many  of  the  names  of  the  constellations  come  from  the   Romans,  slice  they  believed  that  the  starts  were  the   images  of  their  gods.

Roman Ceremonies The religion of the Ancient Romans included elements of primitive beliefs including magic in the form of various charms and ceremonies. The Ancient Roman Religion and Ceremonies included the worship of natural objects, the worship of trees and to some small extent the worship of animals. The Ancient Roman Religion and Ceremonies also included the worship of the household, the worship of the fields and the worship of the state.    

Sacrifices The  Roman  ceremonies  were  based  on  the  belief  that  if  the  Gods  and  Goddesses  were   happy  then  Rome  and  the  Romans  would  receive  good  fortune.  Sacrificial  offerings   were  therefore  made  to  the  ancient  Roman  gods.  And  according  to  the  sex  of  the   god/goddess  the  animal  of  the  same  sex  was  sacrificed.  White  colored  animals  were   sacrificed  to  the  gods  of  the  upper  world  and  black  colored  animals  to  the   underworld.

Harvest Ceremony Harvest  ceremonies  included  the  ceremony  of  the  Augurium   Canarium  during  which  a  red  dog  was  sacrificed  for  the   prosperity  of  the  crop;  also  a  ceremony  involving  a  pregnant   cow,  which  symbolized  the  fertility  of  the  earth.  This   ceremony  was  practiced  in  April.   The  romans  needed  the  success  of  the  harvest  in  order  to   survive.    


Magic Believe  it  or  not,  the  Romans  were  big  believers  in  Magic.   They  asserted  that  humans  had  the  ability  to  control  the   natural  world  including  events,  objects,  people  and   physical  phenomena  through  mystical,  paranormal  or   supernatural  means.  They  used  charms,  spells,  chanting,   sacrifices  and  various  ceremonies  in  order  to  control  the   natural  world.     Such  as  ceremonies  to  produce  rain.  They  had  religious   festivals  where  sacrifices,  ribald  songs,  lewd  acts  were   also  practiced    


The Rain Ceremony of the Aquaelicium The  ceremony  was  designed  to  produce  rain  after  a  long  drought.   A   B   by  the  Pontifices,   The  ceremony   consisted  in  a  procession,  headed   which  bore  the  sacred  rain-­‐stone  the  lapis  manalis  from  its  resting-­‐ place  by  the  Porte  Catena  up  to  the  Capitol.    Offerings  were  made   to  the  sky  god  Jupiter,  together  with  a  symbolic  ritual  of  pouring   water  over  the  stone.
