About this title

Synopsis:

Excerpt from Marius the Epicurean, Vol. 1: His Sensations and Ideas

As, in the triumph of Christianity, the old religion lingered latest in the country, and died out at last as but paganism - the religion of the villagers, before the advance of the Christian Church so, in an earlier century, it was in places remote from town-life that the older and purer forms of paganism itself had survived the longest. While, in Rome, new religions had arisen with bewildering complexity around the dying old one, the earlier and simpler patriarchal religion, the religion of Numa, as people loved to fancy, lingered on with little change amid the pastoral life, out of the habits and sentiment of which so much of it had grown. Glimpses of such a survival we may catch below the merely arti ficial attitudes of Latin pastoral poetry in Tibullus especially, who has preserved for us many poetic details of old Roman religious usage.
