9780023456404: Hellenistic Religions: The Age of Syncretism

Frederick C. Grant was the Edward Robinson Professor of Biblical theology at Union Theological Seminary. In describing the Hellenistic religions that developed from the conquests of Alexander the Great though the Roman Empire, he clarifies their key feature as syncretism: the ability to incorporate all the religions of the then known world within an Hellenistic then Roman framework. A cosmopolitan world of many cults, some competing, others cooperating, some rising others fading, all contributed to the cult and ritual, ethical ideas and moral practices that existed in the new "melting pot" of the Roman Empire. This is the background for the introduction of the earliest stage of Christianity.
