About the Author:

Review:

“Rüpke’s close readings of texts are an excellentmodel for students, and his explanations of widely used theoreticalapproaches are extremely lucid. He covers an enormous amount ofmaterial with great concision, and negotiating it is made easier bymultiple indices. It is one of the most important contemporaryaccounts of the field.”
Teresa Morgan, Times Literary Supplement

“Rupke is one of the most lively and authoritativescholars on Roman religion writing today [and] this is a conciseand informative introduction to the subject.”
Journal of Classics Teaching

“This is an excellent, concise, and up-to-dateintroduction to Roman religion. It expertly surveys both therelevant facts and the underlying issues and will be useful toanyone interested in classical antiquity.”
Karl Galinsky, University of Texas at Austin

Religion of the Romans engages the reader in aconversation about the Romans and their gods. Authored by one ofthe most original and lively investigators of Roman religionwriting in any language, it is as lively as it is erudite. Theoverview of Roman cult it offers is both new and authoritative, andpresents a real challenge to some of the sacred cows of Romanhistory. Illustrated with a mass of source material of every kind,it will be an essential guide for students, while also provokingestablished scholars to rethink some of their assumptions aboutRoman religion.”
Greg Woolf, University of St Andrews
