I'm afraid that shows that you have completely not read it. In fact, neither of those sides is a big factor in Roman Arcana. Christianity is left carefully offstage, with several different ways for the GM to present this; and the Roman pantheon have withdrawn their favor from the empire, in anger at not being given their due. Instead, there are mystery cults (writeups for Bacchus, Isis, and Mithras), sorcerors, and philosophers.
