Item description for Religions of Rome: Volume 2: A Sourcebook by Mary Beard, John North & Simon Price...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Religions of Rome: Volume 2: A Sourcebook?

Book about Romans, by Romans  Jul 27, 2004
This book (volume 2 of a 2 volume work) is an excellent selection of passages writen by Romans and their contemporaries about Romans and their religions. Each translation is preceded by a short description of the context of the passage, and references. Included are paragraphs from books, quotes from lost works, inscriptions from monuments, publicly posted legal announements, and grafitti.

It was a breath of fresh air for me, since the contemporary source material in this subject is so sparse that most books on ancient religion are a doubtful parade of their authors' opinions. And although the passages from ancient writers are laden with their opinions, with the help of the editors of 'Religions of Rome, vol II' it's obvious and once exposed, revealing.
Always Pleasing  May 29, 2003
Religions of Rome, volumes I &II by Doctors Beard, North and Price is an invaluable work that is a necessity for any student of Classical Civilization, as the Oxford Classical Dictionary and H.H. Scullard's Festivals and Ceremonies of the Roman Republic. Throughout my years of study in the university, I have come to rely upon the work as a base for any research that I would embark upon. In this vein, I have to state that the exhaustive Chicago footnotes and bibliography are of extreme help when one needs to seek further primary and secondary source materials. In terms of the book's writing, I declaim with confidence that this is one of the few works to be written by committee and is better off for its. The text reviews subject matter in detail while remaining concise with subject matter placed into collection via topic related to epoch. Again, this work is the basis of any Classicist library and shall serve one diligently thought out one's life.
