THE RELIGIONS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE (Used)
by Ferguson, John
Book ID: 11781, 11781
Ithaca: Cornell University 1976 (1970), third printing, red cloth, 296pp, 87 illustrations, several full-page, vg-f. There have been few books on the subject that can compare to Ferguson's, you have to go back to T. R. Glover's The Conflict of Religions to find one that is so eminently readable yet unquestionably accurate. The author notes in the foreword his dislike for "footnotes and little numerals in the text", and of his attempt to provide a text that can be read "coherently by those who want to trace the general picture together with, at the end, a selective bibliography for those who want to read more widely, and references for those who want to look at the original sources." He therefore has included bibliographic references and notes to each chapter, a three page 'Chronological Table: A Guide to Some of the Chief Authors and Events Mentioned in the Text', and a thorough index in three columns per page in small type. Aspects of Greek and Roman Life series; H. H. Scullard, general editor.

Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
