Popular Religious Groups in Hellenistic Greece After his untimely death at the age of 33, Alexander the Great’s empire crumbled due to tensions between its people. This led to a period known as the Hellenistic Period. This period created breakthroughs in Science, Literature, Math, Philosophy, and especially religion. There were over 60 religions during the Hellenistic Period, but there were two dominant ones that gained much popularity. These two religions were known as Stoicism and Epicureanism.

Also another popular principle of Epicureanism was the belief that there was no life after death. Through the Epicurean religion/philosophy, the ultimate goal of man was to enjoy life. This was done through a man’s “senses”, his reason. The ultimate end of man was happiness. A man had free will, and could live life to his fullest without…
