Stoicism was not a religion. It was a philosophical school. It originated from Greece and became popular among the nobility in the Roman empire. Famous people such as Cicero were inspired by stoicism. Emperor Marcus Aurelius was a stoic philosopher.

Stoicism is, at its heart, unconditional trust in the gods and the perfect harmony of nature, so the opposite would be Epicureanism. Epicureans believed that the gods didn't concern themselves with human life and had no influence in the physical world.
