Ideological and religious life in Egypt, Greek Romanian

The population of Egypt in the Greco-Roman composing Mveja of nationalities and different elements, such as Jews, Syrians, Phoenicians and Libyans and others to the Egyptians

As a result, a mixture of faiths and religions, Egyptian, Greek, Asian, Romanian, and finally Christian

At least I have to follow these religions tolerant policy of the Romans in the exercise of their religion as long as it is not exposed with their loyalty to the state has not been tough with the Jews and Christians only when they resisted the authority of Romania.

I respect the Greeks and Romans, the Egyptian religion and freedom of establishment of the Egyptians in their rituals and temples build and repair what was destroyed them. Also, we find that the Ptolemies walked on what was followed by kings and pharaohs took the same pharaonic titles and painted on the same images in the temples, lending legitimacy to the authority of the emperor in the eyes of the Egyptians. Well as the development Ptolemaic kings and Roman clergy under their control for their influence to curb their powers and intensified here in the era of the Romans did not allow for the priests only growing agricultural areas sufficient to provide the needs of the temples only then put the temples under the supervision of the central authority in order to reduce the activity of the priests to incite Egyptians against the Greeks or the Romans.

Greeks work to earn the Greeks and Egyptians gained Balchbh religion of the deification of Greek kings automation them official names of priests and a chronicle of documents and confessed to an official religion in Greek religion and allowed the establishment of religious rituals and ceremonies and the establishment of temples and their gods likened to the Egyptian gods and Egyptian gods to draw closer to the big

 As well as respected Roman freedom of the Egyptians in the faith and care for the temples and drawing emperors themselves Pharaohs and imitate them at the same time, which was mixed with the tenets of Egyptian beliefs and Greek, we find that Isis was worshiped and spread her worship in the world, along with other gods and tied between the Apis bull and the Gods Serapis and used the Emperors principle of automation kings of the establishment cult for them to help them control of the peoples of the Empire

When Christianity began in Egypt, the late first century the Romans began to birth in fear of them on the status of the emperor did not participate in Christian worship formal state. As the Christian religion rejects the old religions as well as the people the sacred emperor, were considered to compress the cord must be a movement against. He began the era of persecution of Christianity and Christians since 64 AD. Was promulgated is not to convert to Christianity and was heaviest in the era of persecution of Diocletian until it was recognized as an official religion in 282 AD.
