9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The correspondence between Raffaele Pettazzoni and Herbert Jennings Rose (1927-1958) sheds light on the behind-the-scenes activity of two great modern scholars and provides an interesting perspective on the history of religions in the first half of the twentieth century
Greek piety by Martin P Nilsson( Book )

18 editions published between 1928 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dionysiaca by Nonnus( Book )

47 editions published between 1940 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonnos of Panopolis in Egypt, who lived in the fifth century of our era, composed the last great epic poem of antiquity. The Dionysiaca, in 48 books, has for its chief theme the expedition of Dionysus against the Indians; but the poet contrives to include all the adventures of the god (as well as much other mythological lore) in a narrative which begins with chaos in heaven and ends with the apotheosis of Ariadne's crown. The wild ecstasy inspired by the god is certainly reflected in the poet's style, which is baroque, extravagant, and unrestrained. It seems that Nonnos was in later years converted to Christianity, for in marked contrast to the Dionysiaca, a poem dealing unreservedly with classical myths completely redolent of a pagan outlook, there is extant and ascribed to him a hexameter paraphrase of St. John's Gospel
Ancient Roman religion by H. J Rose( Book )

16 editions published between 1946 and 1949 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outlines of classical literature by H. J Rose( Book )

19 editions published between 1958 and 1968 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is not a manual of classical literature, but a guide for students of English literature who too often come to their difficult and complex subject with little or no knowledge of one of its principal sources. It therefore does not attempt to give a complete account of the Greek and Roman writers, but tries instead to deal with those whose influences, direct or indirect, can be clearly traced in medieval and later authors. The ancients are taken in their chronological order, though this is not necessarily the order in which they became known to, or influenced the Christian world. The book should be of unusual interest to the undergraduate, the general reader and to the literary critic desirous of displaying classical erudition
