In a lot of old Roman artifacts from statues to jewelry to even oil lamps, The phallus is often a prominent feature. From what I gather, it was used as symbol of power and protection.
However, when Christianity became prominent the phallus symbol was seemingly removed from the public. What was the reason for this? Was it simply the need to distance oneself from anything from the old religion and so the phallus was branded sinful needing to be removed or where there other reasons?
