Reviews - What do customers think about Oriental Religions in Roman Paganism?
A Classic! Apr 3, 2000
Although this book was written in the early twentieth century, the information it provides is invaluable for any scholar of Roman religion. The text is a superb overview of the material that was available when Cumont wrote and provides an excellent starting point for any exploration into the influence of the Oriental cults on Roman paganism. Scholars of early Christianity will find the text particularly helpful in establishing the context in which the earliest Christian texts were written.
