Rome and the Catholic Church
When the empire of Rome was born and developed, the religious life of Rome was led by the high priest (Pontifex Maximus). When the empire of Rome spread, the Romans began to worship gods of the conquered peoples. The religion of Rome is mixed with the religions of the Greeks, Egyptians, Syrians, Persians and Babylonians. In the empire of Rome a complete mixture of religions was formed (syncretism). As the religious life was so colorful, the Romans arranged an obligatory adoration to the emperor, who made the divine emperor and thus came to Rome the sacred royalty (imperialism).

The Romans believed that the gods influenced and reigned in the seven mountains of Rome “De septem montibus virum”. This became a concept for the Romans; a noble city of seven mountains, which governs the whole world. The Romans believed, that they had to rule the whole world under the direction of the high priest of Jupiter (Pontifex Maximus). Symmachus, who was the high priest of Rome (Pontifex Maximus), called himself a man of seven mountains. This name of the man of seven mountains has remained in the history books because of the letters of that time it has been found that the high priest (Pontifex maximus) was called by this name. According to the opinion of the Romans, the world can be governed only by him, who rules in Rome, in the city of seven mountains. Julio Cesar received the title of pontifex Maximum (sumo pontifice) and thus the emperors began to use this name. The emperors directed to the state and also the religious life of Rome, since the emperor was the leader of the religion, the high priest (Pontifex Maximus).

The Catholic Church and the development of its doctrine
Constantine the Great “converted” to Christianity in 312 AD and he as the high priest (Pontifex Maximum) took the name Vicarius Christi (the vicar of Christ). The new religion of Constantine became Catholic(general, common). The citizens of Rome were made Christians without repentance or conversion. Even a part of the early church became involved in this Catholic religion, which made the new religion of Rome. As the leader of the church, Constantine built churches for “the Christians”, but at the same time he consecrated the pagan temples. In the religion of Constantine there was a lot of freedom at first and he accepted a lot of diversity. But little by little the Catholic Church increased more and more pagan doctrines and rites to the “Roman Catholic Christianity of Rome”. Soon we will see in chronological order the formation of the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. In Catholic Rome some Christians kept the Sabbath as the Sabbath and the Romans, who had the habit of worshiping the sun god,

The development of the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church, where the years are AD:
In 312 Emperor Constantine “converted to Christianity”. At that time he planted a seed, which later became the Roman Catholic Church. From the year 312 began to influence a strong wave of pagan teachings that was added to this so-called Christianity, which the Rome of Constantine represented. From this year you can count the foundation of the Roman Catholic Church, which was made official in the year 380 AD

In the year 321 Constantine made the day of the sun, or Sunday, the Sabbath.

The council of Laodicea gave an order in the year 364: “Christians do not have to be like Jews and be unemployed, but they have to especially respect, being Christians, if possible, not to do any work on that day. If you notice that they follow Judaism, they are excluded from Christ. ”

In the year 375 began the veneration of angels, dead saints and use of images.
