The Cult of Silvanus: A Study in Roman Folk Religion (A Critique)


My interest in Peter F. Dorcey's The Cult of Silvanus: A Study in Roman Folk Religion (the twentieth book in the Columbia Studies in the Classical Tradition series) stems from my ongoing interest in how early Christianity spread through pagan Rome. Admittedly, the $153 price tag will keep this book out of the hands of the typical reader and I want to thank the individual who had the opportunity to put this in my hands. You have my deep gratitude as you contributed to my knowledge substantially.
