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."

Aspects of Greek and Roman Life series; H. H. Scullard, general editor.

The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
