It was this class which gradually detached the attention of Romans from principles of men, and no sooner had it converted Caesar and Pompey into objects of adoration and hatred, than the worshippers of the true were ready to destroy the worshippers of the false deity; a war was declared between God and Baal; and a republican form of government terminated with the conflict.
