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

299 editions published between 1906 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,530 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 Cumont( Book )

41 editions published between 1949 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 373 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
