Though Christianity is now the leading religion in Rome if not, then all of Italy it had not always been the case. Prior to the days of Christianity ruling in Rome people would even be put to death if they would not consider the emperor as a god. In the next 8 images of art pieces of paintings, to drawings, to sculptures you will see just how different artists possibly from different time periods portrayed religion just about a similar way in Ancient Rome. All images lie somewhere around the same line, whether there is an item in the art piece that is sculpted out in an architectural form which can only appear to be Roman to an art piece where the artist has portrayed a passage from the Bible and has created his version of what he sees using Roman characters. Though some artist have chosen topics that appear to be more serious such as that of the painting of a recovering-from-death Saint Sebastian where the widow Irene is nursing him since he had been shot for being a Christian in Rome. To the unknown sculptor of the Early Christian sarcophagus which greatly showed 5 scenes from Early Christianity on a side of a marble sarcophagus. All art pieces connect on the same topic which is Religion in Ancient Rome since that is undoubtedly what they are all about.
