In the regions where Christianity is practiced, every village, no matter how small, has its own round Coptic place of worship whose numbers believe themselves to be the 'chosen people.' Two hundred thousand priests administer to the needs of the congregations, which consist almost entirely of Amharic-Tigrai people. As a religion it is a curious blending of the Christian, Hebraic, and pagan. "

Etruscan Italy - - - - -600 B.C.E. Cavendish, Richard (ed.). Man, Myth & Magic: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Supernatural (vol. 6). New York: Marshall Cavendish Corp. (1970); pg. 848. "Who were the Etruscans? A partial answer, wich which few would quarrel, is that the Etrusci (or Tusci), as the Romans called them, lived in Tuscany in central Italy from at least the 7th century BC. They extended their influence southwards to the area around Naples (in the process engulfing the Latin city of Rome, where Etruscan kings ruled in the 6th century) and later northwards to the northern plain of the Po valley. About 500 BC the southern area including Rome shook off their rule, confing their power increasingly to the disctrict of Tuscany, and in the 4th and 3rd centuries they were finally forced to submit to Rome's expanding might: they were absorbed into Rome's Italian confederacy and in 90 BC became Roman citizens. "
Etruscan Italy - - - - -400 B.C.E. King, John. The Celtic Druids' Year: Seasonal Cycles of the Ancient Celts. London, UK: Blandford (1994); pg. 36. "On the mainland of Europe, the Celts began expanding southwards and westwards during the La Tene period. The first Celtic invasions of Italy took place before 400 BC, when Celtic tribes drove the Etruscans out of Po valley. Interestingly, it is from the Etruscans that the later Romans borrows many religious beliefs and practices, including the priestly sanctification of the foundations and outer bounds of a city. It is quite likely that the early Celts found the rigid fatalism of the Etruscans as antipathetic as they later found the rigid autoritarianism of the Romans. "
