'Gradel's book is consistently thoughtful and learned... Gradel assembles a large quantity of valuable information concerning the imperial cult, erects a thought-provoking interpretative superstructure upon it and points the way to a number of fruitful future topics of research. I commend his book without hesitation as an admirable piece of scholarship which no work on its subject matter can henceforth afford to ignore.' -Graham Wheeler, Digressus 'A stimulating and valuable contribution to understanding and debate in a notoriously difficult area.' -Graham Wheeler, DigressusThis is the first study of emperor worship among the Romans themselves, in Rome and its heartland Italy. It argues that emperor worship was indeed perfectly in keeping with Roman religious tradition, which has been generally misunderstood by a posterity imbued in radically different notions of the relationship between man and the divine.
