Cult of Mithra (Mithraism)
Mithraism was a mystery cult which was popular in Roman society during the early centuries of Christianity. The cult was derived from the Iranian god of light, war, and justice, Mithras, or Mithra. The worship of Mithra was practiced as far away from Rome as Britain and Germany. When the Roman Emperor Constantine converted to Christianity in 312 A.D. (C.E.), Mithraism declined.
