Best Answer

The ancient Romans worshiped too many gods to list. In addition to the major gods and goddesses each Roman house and family had their household gods. The Romans also tended to deify intangible things such as luck which became the goddess Fortuna or the city of Rome itself which was considered the goddess Roma.

  • Venus- One of Jupiter's daughters, Venus was the Roman goddess of love and beauty. She was a lover of Mars, despite her marriage to Vulcan. Venus was the most beautiful of the goddesses.

Those are the main gods. However, there are 21 minor gods: Divus Augustus, Divus Julius, Fortuna, The Lares, Quirinus, Sol Invictus, Adranus, Averrunci, Averruncus, Bellona, Bona Dea, Bromius, Caelus, Castor and Pollux, Clitunno, Cupid, Dis Pater, Faunus, Glycon, Inuus, and Lupercus.

In total, 35 of the Roman gods where copied/renamed from the greek ones, Pollux being god of a new technology.

Former religious philosophies had been given up by the rich. The poor, who couldn't meet the demands of the gods, liked the Oriental religion because it gave hope for endless life. Most Romans still worshipped many gods, including Mars, the god of war; Jupiter, the god of the sky; Ceres, the goddess of grain; and Janus, the god who guarded the city gate. Festivals were held in honor of the gods.
