Gods, Temples and Ritual Practices - Ton Derks [Gaul]
Subtitled, 'The Transformation of Religious Ideas and Values in Roman Gaul', this important scholarly work focusses on pagan religion in what is now France. From the publishers: 'for the first time a consistent description is given of the religious representations and the ritual customs of the populations of northern Gaul. . . these groups dealt selectively with Roman forms of religious culture. The combination of a new theoretical framework and a clear presentation of a large amount of empirical data make this book of great importance'. The book is now quite scarce and sought after.
