Greek and Roman religion have very similar qualities. Both religions are polytheistic and even share the same Gods. Mall amounts of sacrifice and needed to get in contact with Gods to ask them a favor.

Kyle Brassea's curator insight, May 17, 2014 12:11 AM

First off, i might never have made the connection between Dionysian festivals and carnival.  looking at it now it makes sense though.  It is amazing to see how even as ancient of festivals as these still influence and hold sway over Christianity today.  It also amazes me that both religions, despite their vast differences, pull significance from the festival.

Definitely relevant to my work on Athenian Festivals in Ancient Greece.
