Quote Of the Day: October 5, 2011: Roman Tolerance

"The various modes of worship, which prevailed in the Roman world, were all considered by the people, as equally true; by the philosopher, as equally false; and by the magistrate, as equally useful.  And thus toleration produced not only mutual indulgence, but even religious concord."

--Edward Gibbon: History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire
