The Christians and the Roman Empire overturns the myth of an unrelenting persecution of the subversive, Christian "outlaw." Using contemporary sources and authentic documents --including imperial edicts and records of the deeds of non-legendary martyrs--Marta Sordi shows that the conflict was primarily religious and almost never political. The Christians actually continued to profess their loyalty to the Roman Empire during the periods of persecution, and the Empire, which almost never thought of the Christians as a threat to security, often found itself acting simply as the secular arm of religious authorities during these periods of social and cultural intolerance.

From Religion to Philosophy: A Study in the Origins of Western Speculation was written by one of the experts on Greek philosophers and religion, F.W. Cornford. In this classic work, Cornford traces the Western roots of religion and science, pondering common philosophical questions along the way, such as the existence of God, Greek mythology, the soul and immortality, nature and the metaphysical. Many would consider this work one of the most important on philosophy ever written, and just as viable today as when it was published in 1912. Francis Macdonald Cornford was an English philosophy student and teacher at Trinity College in Cambridge, where he was a Fellow and received awards for his excellence in teaching. He was especially interested in Greek religion and philosophy; two of his four works focus on the subject.

This collection offers a fresh look at the nature and development of the Greek gods in the period from Homer until Late Antiquity The Greek gods are still very much present in modern consciousness. Although Apollo and Dionysos, Artemis and Aphrodite, Zeus and Hermes are household names, it is much less clear what these divinities meant and stood for in ancient Greece. In fact, they have been very much neglected in modern scholarship. Bremmer and Erskine bring together a team of international scholars with the aim of remedying this situation and generating new approaches to the nature and development of the Greek gods in the period from Homer until Late Antiquity. The Gods of Ancient Greece looks at individual gods, but also asks to what extent cult, myth and literary genre determine the nature of a divinity and presents a synchronic and diachronic view of the gods as they functioned in Greek culture until the triumph of Christianity.
