Product Description


'...most impressive...' Greece & Rome, 1993. 'No one can fail to be most impressed by the sheer accumulation of evidence, both textual and epigraphical.' Greece & Rome, 1994. '...his volumes are a thorough succes.' David Frankfurter, Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 1994. 'This is a work of arduous painstaking scholarship, gathering diverse sources by patiently reading through a vast body of material spread over two hundred years...All in all a most impressive work.' Robert L. Wilken, Religious Studies Review, 1995. '...a solid piece of work. The evidence is treated objectively and carefully.' Kenneth Paul Wesche, Journal of Early Christian Studies, 1995. 'Voila donc une fort belle etude, complete, critique, intelligemment menee, qui merite de figurer dans la bibliotheque de tout patrologue. philologue et historien.' Nicole Zeegers, Revue d'Histoire Ecclesiastique, 1994. 'Thus to the extent that Trombley has compiled documentation for the continuity of many native cults into the sixth century his volumes are a thorough success.' David Frankfurter, Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 1995. 'Der Wert der Publikation, die eine grosse Materialfulle geschickt verarbeitet, liegt einmal darin, dass der Leser mit dem breiten Spektrum durchaus noch lebendiger paganer Religiositat in der Spatantike konfrontiert wird.' Maria-Barbara von Stritzky, Theologische Revue, 1995. 'This two-volume work is in many ways a treasure for scholars to come, and it will certainly be a mine of information for all...anyone interested in the religious interaction in this period will benefit enormously from Trombley's consideration of the texts. They will certainly read his interpretation of the texts and then be driven inescapably back to the evidence itself for confirmation or contradiction. One cannot ask for more in a modern analysis of an important problem.' Timothy E. Gregory, The Catholic Historical Review, 1995. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
