What People are Saying About This

Ilias Arnaoutoglou

This book provides an illuminating collection of a wide range of sources, bringing together, perhaps for the first time, epigraphic evidence about associations in the Greco-Roman world. I look forward to using it.

Abraham Malherbe

This collection is quite extensive and contains considerably more than most New Testament scholars are aware of. A very welcome resource from a powerhouse of research.

Wayne A. Meeks

Indispensable. A splendid resource for students at several levels, not merely in religious studies, but for anyone exploring the society and culture of the Hellenistic and Roman worlds.

Everett Ferguson

This is a valuable sourcebook that makes available in English a representative and comprehensive collection of texts on the associations in the Greco-Roman world.

Brice C. Jones

This book...will quickly become the most authoritative source for Greco-Roman associations in the English-language.
