This book is about the multiplicity of gods and religions that characterized the Roman world before Constantine. It was not the noble gods such as Jove, Apollo, Diana who were crucial to the lives of the common people in the Empire, but gods of an altogether more earthly, earthly level, whose rituals and observances may now seem bizarre. Each chapter is fully referenced and where appropriate illustrated with photographs and diagrams. This book includes a guide for further reading specifically for English speaking students.
