Product description


'The outstanding characteristics of [Dodds's] work … are a rather rare union of detachment and sympathy, a combination of precise scholarship and a degree of acquaintance with contemporary psychological theories unusual in a classical scholar, and last but not least, an ability to write very well.' The Times Literary Supplement

'Professor Dodds mutes and muffles nothing … His tone is level and just, his understanding is comprehensive and his emphasis is never polemic. There is a dry inner light in his writing which falls evenly in every sentence, a distillation of restrained wit and of the lifelong exercise of scholarship.' Peter Levi, The Tablet

Book Description

Interest in the world of Late Antiquity is currently undergoing a significant revival, and this provocative book now reissued in paperback, anticipated some of the themes now engaging scholars. Professor Dodds examines, from a sociological and psychological standpoint, the personal religious attitudes and experiences common to pagans and Christians in the period between Marcus Aurelius and Constantine.
