Actualities: networks and Religion

December 13, 2013

Nowadays the research of social networks became a very popular topic (see just the waste bibliography of Barabási Albert László or the articles in the Journal of Social Networks. In this context it is obvious, that in the waste chaos of the new kind of methodologies of the study of Roman religion, it appeared also the research of the networks, as a factor in ancient religious dynamics.

A very good -but not the first – example of this kind of study is the new book of Anna Collar from Cambridge, who published her Ph.d. thesis as a monograph entitled “Religious networks in the Roman Empire” at the Cambridge University Press in October, 2013.

This book is a must read, introducing the new network – studies for the classical studies and roman Religionswissenschaft.
