Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Breaking with the long tradition of presenting classical Roman mythology as a reworked and diluted version of its Greek counterpart, offers entries ranging from short definitions to short essays on both the primitive, native aspects and the cosmopolitan fertility of mythology incorporated from Judaism, Druidism, Mithraism, and other cultures. Includes deities and their kin, festivals, events, writers, places and buildings, cult objects, burial rites, and other aspects. Modestly illustrated in black and white. Well cross-referenced, and most entries are referenced to the bibliography. Includes a glossary without pronunciation.
