Roman religioin was a matter of a transaction between man and his chosen gods – offerings to the gods depended on their fulfilling their side of the bargain. The course will look at some of the huge amount of evidence from across the Roman empire, from the eastern gods to the Celtic west with its nature spirits, as well as the rise of the mystery religions with their ideas of the soul and resurrection.
