Christa Frateantonio questions why the Christian religion (churches) was able to assert itself against the polytheistic cults at a time when the majority of the population in the eastern and western parts of the Empire were not Christians. She focuses on the cults which were organized in cities and not on the competition between individual religions.
Christa Frateantonio questions why the Christian religion (churches) was able to assert itself against the polytheistic cults at a time when the majority of the population in the eastern and western parts of the Empire were not Christians. She focuses on the cults which were organized in cities and not on the competition between individual religions. The religious autonomy of the cities can be seen as the result of a 'lack of territorialization' in the Roman Empire, which did not develop a standard religion for the entire Empire. The religious change in the 4th century was decided upon by the emperors and was implemented by the interaction of the administration, the law and the reactivation of political methods on an urban level.
