Very erudite and yet accessible book; has been said to be the natural successor to Wissowa. Interesting and useful, too.

This book is the first stop for the student, and possibly the only stop needed for the casual reader wanting to know more about Roman religion.
In an easily readable and highly enjoyable style (far removed from the weighty and dull style that marks so many classics books) the authors successfully lay out Roman religion from its dark origins to the rise of Christianity, covering and discussing a multitude of issues.
The notes, giving the student references to all the ancient sources, are at the bottom of the page. Personally, endnotes are the bane of my life - I hate having to constantly turn to the back of the book whilst trying to read - and so I was really rather pleased by this.
In addition to the text, this book provides many photographs and diagrams useful to the study of temples and religious art.
