Big Idea Questions

How did religion control or influence their lives?

Religion controlled and influenced their lives because they had many gods and goddesses, who controlled everything on earth and how they lived. They built grand temples for their gods and goddesses, believing that they would see them or live in them. Religion was very important to them, it took part of most of their life. The Greeks always had a separate house for prayers, gifts, and things to give to the gods. They also held sacrifices outside of the temples daily for the gods because they believed that if they didn't do the right thing the gods would come down and punish them. They also wanted the gods to be happy with them and the way that they lived so that when they died the Greeks would get to come and live with the gods. The Greeks wanted the gods to accept them and like they way they lived and they worshiped them. They thought that this would protect them and let them live a healthy life. This is why religion was a very important part of the Greeks daily life.
