The Roman gods and goddesses were originally the spirits of nature with no physical form; it was later Etruscan and Greek influences that gave the gods human form. Collectively they were known as the Roman Pantheon and they exercised their will through natural phenomena (events), which the Roman holy people considered to be omens and sought to interpret. Religious ceremony was an important aspect of Roman culture and influenced daily life at all levels. It was common for the Romans to adopt gods and goddesses from other cultures and incorporate them into their own; the cult of Mithras, the Persian god of light, originated in the east and was popular amongst army officers.
