Paganism has never been a religion, but a spiritual practice and a way of life. This explains why pagans never go out knocking on doors, trying to convert other people. Paganism is a term that covers a great number of spiritual and religious beliefs, and someone who follows one of these beliefs is known as a Pagan. Some of those in ancient times, who are called Pagans today, believed there was not just one god but a number of gods and goddesses. Pagan comes from a Latin word paganus, meaning villager, rustic, civilian, and itself comes from a pāgus which refers to a small unit of land in a rural district. It was a demeaning Latin term (like the word hick), that originally lacked a religious significance. When Christianity came on board the Roman Empire, those who practiced the old ways came to be called pagans. Then, when Theodosius I banned the practice of the old religions in favor of Christianity, he obviously banned the ancient (pagan) practices, but new forms of paganism crept in via the barbarians, according to the Oxford Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages.

Frederico J. Gordo, No he didn't. It's just that simple. And no matter how many times the lie is repeated, it will still not be true.
