Different religions within the Roman world are also discussed.
Dictionary of Roman Religion is a splendid volume on all the gods that the Romans ever worshipped or invented and will be an invaluable source of information about the more obscure gods and goddesses -- Current Archaeology 1996
Lesley and Roy Adkins have succeeded in producing a clear and informative work of reference.... As such an introduction to a vast and highly complex subject, the book fulfils its aims admirably, and I welcome its addition to both my library and personal bookshelves -- Miranda J. Green in The Antiquaries Journal, 1998
This reference tool fills an important need for students of world studies, mythology, antiquities, Latin, and particularly the Roman Empire... Extensive cross-references to other entries and to books in the extensive bibliography enable students to delve as deeply into the subject as desired. The index is extremely detailed. The readable text and inviting layout make this an excellent choice for high school libraries -- School Library Journal, June 1996
