Maya paganism and Christianity: A history of the fusion of two religions. “Mr. For hundreds of years, religious and spiritual pluralism thrived in the Roman Empire.

In the fourth century, however, as Christianity became the state religion, Christians developed the concept of the “pagan” to stigmatize and ostracize those who refused to devote themselves to the Christian god/5(84).
