9780199291137: Fasti Sacerdotum: A Prosopography of Pagan, Jewish, and Christian Religious Officials in the City of Rome, 300 BC to AD 499

This magisterial compilation personalizes and historicizes the history of religion in the city of Rome. After introductory essays on the documentary sources for the various Greek, Roman, Oriental, Jewish, and Christian cults in question, there are yearly lists of religious office-holders of various kinds, followed by 4,000 biographies of individuals who fulfilled ritual, organizational, or doctrinal roles. Concluding chapters discuss important aspects of Roman religion and its relationship with the state. The data assembled here will open up many new perspectives: on the social place of religion and certain cults, on the interplay between different religious groups, and on the organizational history of individual cults. The volume as a whole signifies a major advance in our understanding of ancient religions.

Review:

this book provides and extraordinarily useful research tool for those who work on the religious history of Rome or on many other areas of Roman life in which priests played a part. ... future generations of scholars searching for elusive Roman priests will have every reason to bless the name of Rupke. * John North, Journal of Roman Studies * a major achievement and a milestone in prosopographical studies. No doubt this book will be of great service to an equally great number of scholars and students. * Olli Salomies, Arctos * Rupke is to be congratulated on providing all scholars with a major research tool that I am sure will open up new avenues of study for many years to come in the same way that Broughton's work continues to do. I congratulate and salute the author and his team of advisors for completing such a massive project and for producing a remarkably useful resource. The work is an indispensable research tool for all historians of ancient Rome. * Linda Zollschan, Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
