Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[Millar] explores this dauntingly broad topic with an admirable breadth of knowledge. . . . The collection allows a glimpse into what great academic careers are made of: seemingly insatiable intellectual curiosity and the courage to explore new avenues."
-Arctos

"Those who have learned much from [Millar] will be delighted with this volume, and will find much to stimulate new avenues of exploration. . . . The book belongs in every library used by those studying the classical, Jewish and Christian sources and world."
Journal of Jewish Studies

"[A] significant contribution to the sum of knowledge about the Roman empire. . . . It opens up the world of the Roman empire to those readers who do not have an ancient language background, yet desire to know more about the background and culture of Imperial Rome from a scholar who must be considered one of the most influential historians of our time."
Bryn Mawr Classical Review
