"Christianity has made of death a terror which was unknown to the gay calmness of the Pagan. "

All you have to do is read up on what was done to those who were considered heretics against paganism in ancient Greece to know that killing over religion isn't confined to nor invented by Christianity or Judaism or Islam.

I agree, I wholeheartedly agree. I don't think this quote has anything to do with which religion had perused religious murder, or has more blood on their collective hands. I feel she is referring the eternal rest after death and to the idea of eternal torment of fire and brimstone rather than the rest of Hades among the shades and shadows. The idea of Christian Hell is much more terrifying than the idea of Hades, even despite the punishments therein but as everyone is hoping for the peace of the Elysian Fields. So Pagan afterlife is essentially more hopeful.
