comment What is the last historical mention of people worshipping the Roman gods?
@LateralFractal also note that aroud the end of fisrt millenium (the time around Charlemegne) a legend was widespread that Germanic peoples (Franks) originated from Troy, which served as a national onigin myth serving to prove the relation between the Franks and Romans and the right of the Franks to rule Rome.

comment What is the last historical mention of people worshipping the Roman gods?
@LateralFractal definitely not a rebellion. There are also other legends where classical gods appear along Christian characters, in various roles. It seems such kind of mixing was not expressly persecuted by Rome, but conversely, even popes made orders for statues and pictures of ancient gods for their private collections and public places. It is unclear though to what extent this can be seen a "worship" as all of them kept is separate from their Christian service.

@Mark C. Wallace Tsarist Russia also suffered from a lot of deadly famines. It was not command-driven.
