It is widely believed that Christianity remained an essentially urban cult and that the population of the countryside clung for generations to the old beliefs. The word `pagan' comes from paganus, or someone who lived in the countryside (pagus). Unfortunately, we know so little about the religious life in rural areas that this remains conjectural. Paganus was usually derogatory - something like `yokel' or `hick' would give the right idea - and may just reflect the common belief of urban dwellers that countrymen were dull and backward. ― Adrian GoldsworthyHow Rome Fell: Death Of A Superpower •

Tampa’s Downtown is quite small but it can offer you all what you would expect from a city and you don’t even need to use a car or public transport there. We really enjoyed cycling to the Davis Island and Bayshore Blvd - I have never seen so many huge and beautiful houses before! 🤩 I also do like how people love hockey here well I obviously mean @tblightning - you can see it all around Tampa! 🤩 #tampabay#cityview
