The Absence of religion, even in Ammianus?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

There was no understanding of "religion" in the Ancient World of Greece and Rome. No such conception as we now hold existed then, no such classificatory component (as in "religion and society") or counterpart (as in "science and religion"), no particularising use (as in "Roman religion"), no pluralising use (as in "religions of the world").
