Book Description

Valerius Maximus was an indefatigable collector of historical anecdotes illustrating vice and virtue. Mueller focuses on what Valerius can tell us about Roman attitudes to religion, and argues that Roman religion could be deeply emotional.


'M. weaves together an account which ... formulates a distinctive position for his author. The fact that in so doing he also outlines promising methodologies for appreciating Roman religion is a bonus.' – Journal of Roman Studies
