CONSTANTINE/AFTERLIFE:

Emperor Constantine 1 (aka Constantine the Great) was the first Roman emperor to profess Christianity and move the Empire into a Christian state. By doing so, he changed the culture and religion of ancient Rome  effectively eliminating the many gods (including Zeus) and goddesses who had been worshiped for centuries by previous civilizations.
