Actualities: Memory and religion

January 12, 2014

The Erfurt School and its very dynamic team edits and publish a new book almost in every year. Their last contribution to Roman religious studies is a volume edited by Nicola Cusumano, Jörg Rüpke, Attilio Mastrocinque and Valentino Gasparini entitled “Memory and religious experience in the Greco – Roman World” published in Stuttgart, by Franz Steiner Verlag as a part of the Potsdamer Altertumwissenschaftlische Beitrage, band 45.

The book is divided in two main parts, each containing 6 -6 articles. The first chapter is about Memory and Religion in the Greek World, the seond is about the “Religious experience in the Roman World.

The twelve contributions are very important, not especially because their topics (many of them being analyzed a lot of time before) but mainly because the new bibliography and approach used in the book.
