 Apotheosis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Apotheosis is most commonly used to refer to the Roman pagan process whereby an Emperor, empress, hero or leader was made into or recognized as a deity by decree of the Senate or popular consent.
Apotheosis could also be applied to members of the imperial family such as emperors' wives like Livia or (in an apotheosis portrayed on the column of Antoninus Pius) Faustina and, as an acceptable means of emperor-worship to the senate (worship of living emperors being regarded with suspicion), was a critical part of the imperial cult
As apotheosis became a part of Roman political life in the late Republic and early Empire, it began to be treated in literary contexts: In the Aeneid, Virgil depicts Aeneas' deification, saying he will be taken up to the stars of Heaven, and mentions Caesar's apotheosis.
