The Empire's territorial extent varied over its history but at its peak it encompassed Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, north-eastern France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, part of western Poland, and Italy.

Originally the whole empire was Catholic. It then was torn by the religious wars which occurred during the protestant reformation. The Lutheran and Calvinist versions of Protestantism spread in northern and eastern Germany and in the Netherlands. There was also a Jewish minority.

Currently there are also other religious minorities. The largest one is Islam which accounts for of the population in Belgium, 4 to 5% in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands, 2.4% in Slovenia and 2% in Italy.

What was official religion of the roman empire before Christianity?

Before Christianity there was not an official religion in the Roman Empire. The Romans had their religion and the conquered peoples had their religions. The Romans tolerated the religions and customs of the conquered peoples for two reasons: 1) tolerance promoted stability and integration; a rigid policy regarding religion and customs would have led to many rebellions. 2) The Romans did not feel that their religion was threatened by other religions because pagan religions did not have a missionary spirit and did not try to convert people from different religions. The reason why the Romans at one point felt threatened by Christianity was its missionary zeal: they were converting many Romans and this was at times perceived as a threat to the Roman state, which was steeped in Roman religion.

Do all religions have a similar structure?

firstly, Catholocism is one of the many denominations of Christianity. Christianity has approximately 30 000 denomonations and they all believed in Jesus and God, but Catholocism is the only one that believes that Jesus is the son of God. Catholocism is the most commonly known denominations of Christianity along with Orthodoxy. Now to directly answer the question, the one thing that all religions have in common is morality. Every religion has different practices, doctrines, rules and morals that they go by but they all have them. Though it is not similar in structure it is the only similarity that all religions have.
