4.0 out of 5 stars Good Companion To The Other Book
Whilst the previous volume was a narrative history, this one is a book of sources. This means it probably won't interest the casual reader as much as the first volume, but it is a must for the student.
All the sources are well chosen, and provide depth as well as variety. If you're new to the field, then this book will be your introduction to lots of the primary...

3.0 out of 5 stars useful read
A wide range of sources that really covers the subject. The layout could be improved upon slightly and it would be nice to have a bit more commentary on some of the larger sources but it does the trick. Very helpful if you just need to look something up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Companion To The Other Book, 18 Oct 2001

This review is from: Religions of Rome: Volume 2, A Sourcebook. (Paperback)
Whilst the previous volume was a narrative history, this one is a book of sources. This means it probably won't interest the casual reader as much as the first volume, but it is a must for the student.
All the sources are well chosen, and provide depth as well as variety. If you're new to the field, then this book will be your introduction to lots of the primary sources which you may want to go and research in greater detail. This makes it a good starting point to use when researching for an essay, and will lead you to the rest of your bibliography.
The authors also provide introductions and notes along with the primary evidence, helping to explain it and set the context in a way suitable for someone with minimal or no prior knowledge of Roman religion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing source book, 24 Feb 2014

This review is from: Religions of Rome: Volume 2, A Sourcebook. (Paperback)
So so useful for my dissertation, it's a fantastic source book with a huge range of information. Though it's not too in-depth (If they wrote all they knew about Roman religion it would take far more volumes) it's useful as a reference book for undergraduate essays or as a sort of 'encyclopedia'.
