Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beginning with Greece's earliest rites, this volume traces the development of the classic religion of the Olympian gods and discusses the religion of the philosophic schools of the fourth century BC. It portrays the emergence of Christianity and concludes with an account of the efforts of Julian the Apostate to restore a new variety of paganism.

Book News Annotation:

<:st>Classicist Murray (1886-1957) first wrote Four Stages of Greek Religion, which was published in 1912, by Henry Growde in London. He added another chapter and another stage in 1925, and wrote a long introduction for the 1951 third edition published by Beacon Press in Boston. Reprinted here is the 1955 Doubleday Anchor reprint of that third edition. Murray traces Greek religion from Saturn through the Olympians and the great schools to the decline.
