Overview

Roman Religion: A Sourcebook provides an introduction to the fundamentals of ancient Roman religious beliefs and rituals through a rich collection of ancient source readings. The ancient sources are to be viewed with utmost respect as the primary means by which an accurate understanding of the past may be gained. By contrasting Roman action and opinion with our own, we may come to better understand ourselves and the culture in which we live. The book includes maps, glossary, a chronological table and lists of important gods. This book is designed as a companion to Valerie Warrior's Greek Religion: A Sourcebook.
