In this episode we begin a series on the religious situation in the Roman Empire during the first years of the Christian Movement. We will take a look at the Roman State religion, personal religion and the Cult of Sol Invictus. The early Christian movement did not develop in a vacuum. Instead, it developed in a rich religious and cultural environment. We will look at how the various religions of the time helped shape what Christianity will become.
