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.
