The Oriental religions in Roman paganism by Franz Cumont( Book )

20 editions published between 1911 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a very detailed review of what is known about the eastern religions which were absorbed into Roman Paganism during the late Republic and Imperial periods. Cumont, who also wrote The Mysteries of Mithra was a Belgian scholar who specialized in the study of ancient religion. Topics include the cults of the Magna Mater, Cyblele, Isis, Astarte, Mithrism and Zoroastrianism, as well as a study of astrology and how it became part of Roman beliefs. Roman Paganism started out as a system of animist beliefs with a simple pantheon of gods and goddesses. Contact with these diverse near-eastern religions added a sophisticated system of ethics, ritual and cosmology and a host of additional deities

OVID (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 B.C.-A.D. 17), born at Sulmo, studied rhetoric and law at Rome. Later he did considerable public service there, and otherwise devoted himself to poetry and to society. Famous at first, he offended the emperor Augustus by his Ars Amatoria, and was banished because of this work and some other reason unknown to us and dwelt in the cold and primitive town of Tomis on the Black Sea. He continued writing poetry, a kindly man, leading a temperate life. He died in his exile. His main surviving works are the Metamorphoses, a source of inspiration to artists and poets including Chaucer and Shakespeare; the Fasti, a poetical treatment of the Roman year of which Ovid finished only half; the Amores, love-poems, the Ars Amatoria, not moral but clever and in parts beautiful; Heroides, fictitious love-letters by legendary women to absent husbands; and the dismal works written in exile - the Tristia, appeals to persons including his wife and also the emperor; and similar Epistulae ex Ponto. Poetry came naturally to Ovid who at his best is lively, graphic and lucid

Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso) was born at Sulmo in central Italy in 43 BC. After holding some minor judicial positions, he abandoned a career in public service for writing, and was soon acknowledged as the leading Roman poet of his generation. But in AD 8 he was suddenly banished by the Emperor Augustus for reasons which remain the subject of much speculation. Despite complaints and pleas to Augustus, and later to his successor, Tiberius, Ovid remained in exile until his death in AD 17
