    Well the Romans and Greeks had different names for gods but they had very close to the same gods But they worshiped in different ways Roman worship was divided into the public and the private. Families would honor their household spirits while Rome had colleges of official priests to ensure that its actions met with divine approval.

    The Greeks felt like if they didn't worship the gods they would get punished through whatever nature they were god of. For example if they didn't worship Zeus, the God of the Sky, he would send down a lightning bolt and burn down the whole village. They felt like if they did worship them, they would have good nature and crops and there would be nothing wrong. They felt if they worshipped more than one god, the other would become angry or jealous and cause them destruction on them or their village. To avoid this, they worshipped the gods equally. They did this by having a temple for each god and a priest or priestess that maintained the temples. They considered the gods to control everything. Typically one god would control one thing although there were some that controlled multiple things. There were major and minor gods, but they mostly worshipped the major gods and the decendents of the major gods. The Greeks goal were to make the gods happy.
