et si conferre volumus nostra cum externis, ceteris rebus aut pares aut etiam inferiores reperiemur, religione, id est cultu deorum, multo superiores.

And if we want to compare our own affairs with those of foreigners, we shall be found to be equal, or even inferior, in other matters, but much superior in religion (that is, the worship of the gods).
