De Godsdienst Der Romeinen * J.L.M. de Lepper (1950)

This book comes in the series ‘de godsdiensten der mensheid’ (‘the religions of mankind’) of which I reviewed three others in the Asatru archive.
The book was the third in the series that I read and it speaks about old information and new (classical writers versus modern scientific (archeological) investigation), that religion for the Romans was something personal, but also a matter of the state, feasts around the year, the many gods, the way they were worshipped, priests and priestesses, mystery-cults, the high level of tolerance towards other religions and so on. Also very informative with many wonderfull photos and a good index.
