Description

In the ancient Greek and Roman worlds, people developed myths, magic, superstitions and religious beliefs in order to explain things that they could not account for and to try to understand their position within the universe. This book, which is considered to be a suitable companion to the author's Arcana Mundi, includes a collection of more than twenty articles and reviews written over the past thirty years and now all brought together in English translation. Georg Luck discusses Stoic cosmogony, forms of worship in Neoplatonism, the spiritual journey of Apuleius, the muses in Roman poetry, paganism, and many other subjects.
