A comprehensive and radical new survey of religious life in Rome over the course of a millennium.
'These books are the result of years of patient scholarship and
intellectual questioning. No other volume has covered such a time
span so effectively and made such clear use of maps, illustrations
and archaeological evidence.' Robin Lane-Fox, British Museum
"Finally, someone has written a readable history of the complex subject of Roman Religion. Beard, North and Price, professors from Cambridge, University College London and Oxford respectively, bring a wealth of expertise to the project, but their approach is, in their own terms `radical'. Throughout, this book is authoritative, well organized, interesting and eminently readable. It is highly recommended as a background to the important subject of religion as it is manifested in numismatic imagery." Wayne G. Sayles, The Celator
"Religions of Rome is a major work from a major press that will likely be widely read and cited for years to come. Often, it is worthy of such a status." The Journal of Religion
"A handsome, impressively illustrated two-volume set..." Lingua Franca
