Some call Roman Mythology a rip-off from the Greek mythology, but really the Romans had their own set of religious practices that will not be found in the Greek side. To know which gods existed at the time of Jesus and the apostles is truly an eye-opening experience. To see the injustice in the Justice system makes us wonder how dark the times were.
