Write The First Customer Review

One of the few studies that deals with Roman domestic religion as practised by the lower classes. The author collects and analyzes the enormous epigraphic and archaeological evidence for Silvanus, The Roman god of agriculture and forests, challenging the widely-held view that private cult was subordinate or inferior to civic paganism.
