Religions of Rome: Volume I

£9.99

Product description

This book is in good condition. Its cover is slightly faded and worn, with slight foxing on the back, but is intact and clean. There is a name written on the first page, and very slight water damage on the top, but otherwise the pages are unmarked, clean and intact.

Religions of Rome offers the first full account of the history of the official cults of Rome from the 5th and 4th centuries BC to the 4th century AD. Volume 1, A History, is an analytic history, organised mainly chronologically, and covers 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. This book offers a radical new survey of more than a thousand years of religious life at Rome. 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. The narrative account is structured around a series of broad themes: how to interpret the Romans' own theories of their religious system and its origins; the relationship of religion and the changing politics of Rome; the religious importance of the layout and monuments of the city itself; changing ideas of religious identity and community; religious innovation - and, ultimately, revolution.
