9780748614301: Religion in Archaic and Republican Rome: Evidence and Experience (New Perspectives on the Ancient World)

Early Roman religions have conventionally been seen as conservative and ritualistic, where observances were kept for reasons of pragmatism rather than inspired by emotion or faith. This volume challenges this view. The authors deploy a variety of approaches to examine the topic, including archaeological, historical, literary, numismatic, epigraphical and anthropological.
