Originally published in 1933, the Hibbert Lectures of 1932 by Robert Seymour Conway address how ancient Italian religion, in its various forms, shaped later receptions and expressions of Christianity in Italy and the world. The text is accompanied by photographs of wall paintings, statues and other ancient religious artifacts from Italy and elsewhere in the ancient world. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient religion and the development of Christianity.
