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

316 editions published between 1906 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,670 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

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

55 editions published between 1942 and 2015 in French and English and held by 489 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
