Item Description...
Long overshadowed by Greek mythology or treated peripherally in general texts on the ancient Roman world, Roman religion is finally accorded its due and set in its full context as no other reference source has done before. While perhaps most familiar in the context of Greek-influenced gods, Roman religious life in fact encompassed a tremendous variety of deities, rites, and belief systems.
From the Celtic god Abandinus to the pagan historian Zosimus, Dictionary of Roman Religion contains more than 1,400 entries, covering topics such as festivals, sacrifices, temples, burial rites, deities and spirits, and historical religious events. The different religions are also covered: Mithraism, Druidism, Judaism, and Christianity, which were all part of the Roman religious world. Entries range from brief definitions to concise essays reflecting important aspects of religious practice, and most include suggestions for further reading in addition to a complete bibliography.
Complete with illustrations and helpful cross-references, this dictionary is both comprehensive and essential for students and researchers. For those interested in ancient religions, myths and legends, Roman society, and classical studies, this dictionary is a welcome and novel edition to the vast library on ancient Roman life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The best resourse on Roman Paganism in print!  Mar 23, 1999
"The Dictionary of Roman Religion" is an absolute masterwork of a resource book. Literally every important topic is covered here in great detail... pagan deities, rites, cults, religions, ritual tools, holy sites, priesthoods, festivals, famous individuals, etc. The best part is that this book covers far more than just Roman religion. The entries here in effect give a clear picture of how religions interacted in the ancient world. Here you'll find deities that the Celts and Romans worshipped together, German-Roman temples, Graeco-Egyptian deities, etc. No matter what your personal area of interest you will find useful material here. This is a book you'll refer back to constantly for information that is both concise and complete. I've met at least a dozen people who own this book and all of them consider it the most helpful book on ancient religion they own
