Religions of Rome

Volume 2, a Sourcebook
  • By Mary Beard
The second of the two volumes which make up Religions of Rome, this work presents a range of documents illustrating religious life in the Roman world from the early Republic to the late Empire painting, sculpture, coins and inscriptions, as well as literary texts in translation. It explores some of the major themes in Roman religion (such as sacrifice, the religious calendar, divination and prediction). Each document, with introduction, explanatory notes and bibliography, is used as the starting point for further discussion. The book reveals the extraordinary diversity of Roman religion from the archaeological traces of its earliest phases, to the sophisticated theological debates of later Roman authors. The widening scope of religious choice in the Roman world is a major theme of the book; and here Judaism and Christianity are given full coverage.
