    A very interesting read. You might also want to read the Acts of the Pagan Martyrs. I don't have a link but I think Mursillo wrote a scholarly work about it.

    Fairly depressing. It is interesting - the only thing that could have prevented the Western European pagan religions (I'm not entirely sure if the same applied to those of this article) from being wiped out by Christianity would have been a stronger central organisational system. However the only reason really I think that those religions were much better than Christianity (and thus wish that they had survived in its place) was the fact that they did lack this system which meant that they didn't have the dogmatic systems which led to the persecution of others that we condemn most religions for. This makes it quite hard to establish what I wish had happened historically...
