Religions of Rome: Volume 1, a History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book offers a radical new survey of more than a thousand years of religious life in Rome, from the foundation of the city to its rise to world empire and its conversion to Christianity. It sets religion in its full cultural context, between the primitive hamlet of the eighth century BC and the cosmopolitan, multicultural society of the first centuries of the Christian era.

Synopsis:

Religions of Rome offers the first full account of the history of the official cults of Rome from the Republic to the late Empire (5th and 4th centuries BC - 4th century AD). Volume 1, A History, is an analytic history, organised mainly chronologically, and covering such themes as 'imperial triumph', 'the place of religion', 'the boundaries of Roman religion', and 'the religions of imperial Rome'. Together with its companion volume, A Sourcebook, this is the most important survey of more than a thousand years of religious life at Rome.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive and radical new survey of religious life in Rome over the course of a millennium.
