An introduction to Roman religion by John Scheid( Book )

40 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an introduction to religion in Rome during the late republic and early empire. Written by one of the world's leading scholars of the subject, it draws on the latest findings in archaeology and history to explain the meanings of rituals, rites, auspices and oracles, to describe the uses of temples and sacred ground, and to evoke the daily patterns of religious life and observance within the city Rome and its environs. The book is divided into five parts. In the first the author considers the contemporary meaning of religious terms and concepts and the role religion played in the Roman sense of identity and destiny. The second describes the religious calendar, diurnal patterns of worship and observance, and the structure of religious space in temples, sanctuaries and sacred places. The third looks at the form of religious services including the rites and purposes of sacrifices, and examines when auspices were sought and how they were read. Part IV describes the priests and priestesses - who they were; how they were trained and for what functions - and the gods and demi-gods of the Roman pantheon. Part V considers Roman theology and exegesis. -- Back cover

Rome et l'intégration de l'Empire : 44 av. J.-C.-260 ap. J.C by François Jacques( Book )

47 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in French and Undetermined and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Du Haut Empire on donne volontiers une image caricaturale. Défini sans précaution comme une monarchie brutale et brouillonne, le régime du principat est considéré tantôt comme un système prédateur, tantôt comme une période idyllique de paix et de félicité, interrompue par quelques rares guerres civiles et progressivement détruite par les barbares. C'est contre ces excès que veut réagir ce livre. Le principat était indéniablement un régime autoritaire et répressif, fondé sur le pouvoir militaire et sur l'exploitation des pauvres, libres ou non libres. Mais il n'était ni une monarchie absolue, ni une simple machine impérialiste. Très souple et en mutation permanente, le régime du principat a réussi à maintenir une relative paix intérieure et à gouverner, voire à intégrer dans l'empire, sur le plan politique, social et économique, les régions, les cités et les élites de tout le monde méditerranéen

Quand faire, c'est croire : les rites sacrificiels des Romains by John Scheid( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in French and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A travers l'analyse de sacrifices pratiqués à Rome entre le IIe siècle avant J.-C. et le IIIe siècle apr. J.-C., l'auteur étudie cette fonction fondamentale de la religion romaine ainsi que l'influence des rites sacrificiels grecs. Il montre que ces sacrifices, laissant libre cours à nombreuses interprétations et croyances, attestent du problème de sens dans une religion sans croyances ni dogmes
