Group Description

Byzantium Classical Religion is the forum for the ancient religions of Rome and Greece within Byzantium Novum.

Although the Byzantine Empire was officially Christian, the ancient Classical religions continued to be practiced for centuries in the Byzantine world. Classical temples were built in Constantinople at its founding, and still remained standing (though unused) at its fall in 1453.

It is thought that even by the end of Justininan's reign in 565, fully half the citizens of the Byzantine empire still practiced the traditional ancient faiths.

Here, the ancient religious traditions of the Classical world remain a part of Byzantium Novum. Here the ancient Greek and Roman rites continue to be upheld. Here, although stripped of Imperial favor, the ancient priesthoods maintain a living religious community.
