The religion of NUMA. In the middle of the five centuries of her republic came the Punic wars and the intimate association with Greece which made the last half of her history as a republic so different from the first half; and in the kingdom, which preceded the republic, there was a similar coming of foreign influence, which made the later kingdom with its semi-historical names. For in many phases of early Roman religion there are present characteristics which go back to old manners of thought, and these manners of thought are not peculiar to the Romans but are found in many primitive peoples of our own day.

And Other Essays on the Religion of Ancient Rome. The religious forms of a community are always so bound up with its social organisation that a satisfactory knowledge of the one is practically impossible without some knowledge of the other. Unfortunately there is no field in Roman history where theories are so abundant and facts so rare as in regard to the question of the early social organisation. But without coming into conflict with any of the rival theories we may make at least the following statements

I found this book by accident, when browsing the Kindle library. As I am researching materials on the Religio Romana, or the "Religion of Ancient Rome", I downloaded it, not knowing what to expect. The book was written in the early part of the 1900's, and offers a very clear, if biased view of "proper" Roman religion and it's history. This is a very valuable text, and clearly lays out the early history of Rome's gods, and the later introduction of "Eastern" faiths - from Greece and Egypt, among others. The author decries the watering-down of what he considers the original, masculine and pure faith of the first Romans, and clearly delineates between the rules that King Numa laid down for appropriate forms of worship, and those that accrued over time. These changes, according to the author, led to disastrous results - eventually the fall of the Roman Empire. Aside from the somewhat amusing polemics regarding "soft" or "lascivious" religious practices that the author indulges in, there is a wealth of information here about the original gods of the Roman people - natural forces without form, that were not supernatural copies of human beings. I highly recommend it to any student of ancient religions, or the Roman religion in particular. It is very readable and filled with valuable information.

This book is both interesting, educational, and well written. I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to make sense out of the later culture and religion of ancient Rome. As an avid student of Roman religion and culture, with a comparison to modern day society; it has been of considerable question as to what led to the later religion of Rome. This book talks about the beginning of Rome in the Old Kingdom with reference to the beginnings of a strongly agricultural base, and therefore provides the base to a great education on the times before Greece was such a major influence on Roman culture. Both easy to read, easy to follow, and easy to make sense out of: this is a book that a much younger person could read and enjoy, as well as learn something from. Most people are not going to be reading Livy or learning Latin any time soon, and this is a nice, easy to follow book that is for those just starting their journey into the beginnings of Rome.
