The Oriental religions in Roman paganism by Franz Cumont( Book )

312 editions published between 1906 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a very detailed review of what is known about the eastern religions which were absorbed into Roman Paganism during the late Republic and Imperial periods. Cumont, who also wrote The Mysteries of Mithra was a Belgian scholar who specialized in the study of ancient religion. Topics include the cults of the Magna Mater, Cyblele, Isis, Astarte, Mithrism and Zoroastrianism, as well as a study of astrology and how it became part of Roman beliefs. Roman Paganism started out as a system of animist beliefs with a simple pantheon of gods and goddesses. Contact with these diverse near-eastern religions added a sophisticated system of ethics, ritual and cosmology and a host of additional deities

It is an overview of the early cult of MIthraism. He traces the original worship of Mithras back to ancient Hinduism and up through Persia, but points out that this particular expression, found in the Roman Empire, originated there. But Christianity stamped it out, it had gained strength rapidly and was the main pagan religion of its time

Recherches sur le symbolisme funéraire des Romains by Franz Cumont( Book )

52 editions published between 1942 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les 'Recherches sur le symbolisme funéraire des Romains' peuvent être considérées comme le pendant romain de l'admirable 'Psyche' d'Erwin Rohde. Parues en pleine guerre, en 1942, elles visent à retrouver au front de certains sarcophages mythologiques et dans le décor de certaines stèles un écho des théories philosophiques relatives à l'immortalité de l'âme et à son ascension dans les sphères célestes, une fois débarrassée de son enveloppe charnelle. Ces théories, qui avaient fait l'objet de quelques-uns de premiers travaux de Cumont (Le mysticisme astral dans l'Antiquité, 1909) et d'un premier livre, Afterlife in Roman Paganism (1922), le retiendront encore dans sa dernière oeuvre, Lux perpetua, parue en 1949, deux ans après sa mort et rééditée dans cette même collection en 2010. Précédées par une très riche mise en perspective de la part de Janine et Jean-Charles Balty, les Recherches sur le symbolisme funéraire des Romains, longuement mûries par Cumont mais parfois âprement débattues de nos jours, demeurent une somme incontournable pour l'exégèse de nombre de monuments funéraires d'époque romaine
Lux perpetua by Franz Cumont( Book )

43 editions published between 1949 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lux perpetua est le dernier ouvrage de Franz Cumont. Publié à titre posthume en 1949, il présente une synthèse consacrée aux idées des Romains de l'Empire relatives à la vie future et à l'au-delà. Ce livre montre comment, au fil des siècles, les Enfers se sont déplacés des entrailles de la terre, où les plaçait la tradition littéraire grecque, vers le firmament du ciel, pour donner finalement naissance au thème de l'eschatologie céleste. L'ouvrage met en lumière les deux tendances de la conception païenne de l'au-delà. La première, matérialiste, illustrée surtout par Virgile, est tributaire de l'orphisme-pythagorisme. La seconde, empreinte de spiritualité mystique, remonte à Platon. C'est à cette théorie qu'adhèrent la plupart des philosophes romains, mais aussi bon nombre d'auteurs chrétiens. Cette nouvelle édition, enrichie d'une introduction historiographique, fait renaître ce classique devenu aujourd'hui introuvable, mais qui reste, soixante ans après, une référence.--Jacket
