Les Cultes Orientaux dans le Monde Romain

£19.99

Product description

"Oriental Cults in the Roman World". In the 2nd century of our era, Rome dominates the Mediterranean basin. But its officials and soldiers worship Isis, Attis, Mithra, the Baals of Commagene and Heliopolis. The gods of Egyptian, Syrian, Anatolian or even Iranian stock occupy the seven hills. In the West, these eastern divinities are present in river and sea ports, in garrison camps and towns, from Scotland to the borders of the Sahara, and even in certain towns of deep Gaul. Who are these gods from elsewhere? How are their cults and clerics organised? What do they mean for their followers? Robert Turcan answers all these questions, studying all these immigrant devotions, without neglecting marginal or sporadic cults, also dealing with Gnostic, occultist and theosophical currents. Illustrated with black and white photographs. In French.

Condition: The covers are in excellent condition apart from light fading to the perimeters and to the spine. Name of previous owner on fly leaf, textblock otherwise in pristine condition.
