Most widely held works by Franz Valery Marie Cumont
The Mysteries of Mithra by Franz Valery Marie Cumont ( Book )
41 editions published between 1903 and 2012 in English and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this pioneering 1902 work of historical-religious scholarship, the author sifts through ancient artifacts and texts to trace the rise of the Eastern religion of Mithra--the Zoroastrian divinity of oath and covenant--throughout the Roman Empire and its spread among the Roman legions. He compares and contrasts Mithraism with the competitor that eclipsed it: Christianity
The Oriental religions in Roman paganism by Franz Valery Marie Cumont ( Book )
45 editions published between 1911 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,448 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

Lux perpetua by Franz Valery Marie Cumont ( Book )
31 editions published between 1949 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 333 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

Les mystères de Mithra by Franz Valery Marie Cumont ( Book )

L'oeuvre magistrale dans laquelle Franz Cumont a rassemblé le corpus entier des témoignages mithriaques 'Les Mystères de Mithra' reproduisent les conclusions des Textes et Monuments figurés relatifs aux Mystères de Mithra (1894-1899), l'oeuvre magistrale dans laquelle Franz Cumont a rassemblé le corpus entier des témoignages mithriaques (textes, inscriptions, monnaies, gemmes, reliefs). Dans ces conclusions - dont est republiée ici la troisième édition parue à Bruxelles en 1913 -,Cumont soutient la thèse de la continuité entre les conceptions et rites diffusés par les mages mazdéens et le culte de Mithra dans l'Empire romain. Cette nouvelle édition est enrichie par une introduction historiographique et par la publication d'un écrit inédit, annoté par Th. Mommsen, dans lequel Cumont expose ses premières réflexions sur la diffusion du culte de Mithra en Occident
