Drawn from the acclaimed Oxford Classical Dictionary, The Oxford Dictionary of Classical Myth and Religion offers a fully rounded guide to all aspects of religious life and thought in ancient Greece and Rome. Highly authoritative, this new book covers not only Greek mythologies and Roman festivals, but also devotes attention to topics such as Greek and Roman religious places, monuments, authors and texts, religious organization, imagery, divination, astrology, and magic. Unlike many other references on ancient Greece and Rome, the Dictionary also includes many entries on Judaism and Christianity in the classical world.
The editors, area advisors for the third edition of the Oxford Classical Dictionary, have selected, revised, edited, and in some instances completely recast a large number of entries from theOCD to create this handy and accessible reference. The main text is supplemented by an important introductory essay providing overviews of mythology, religious pluralism in the ancient world, and the reception of myths from antiquity to the present. In addition to a helpful thematic index and extensive cross-references, the text is further supported by three maps and six genealogies.
Backed by the authority and scholarly rigor of the renowned Oxford Classical Dictionary,The Oxford Dictionary of Classical Myth and Religion is a valuable A-Z reference and is as ideal a tool for students and teachers of ancient history as it is for all classics lovers.

The well-chosen entries capture the spirit of the subject, disclosing th dark side of the ancient Mediterranean, bringing the gods down from Olympus, & piercing the glittering surface of Greek & Roman thought to expose the rites & revels, mysteries & muddle. Local & popular religion receive due attention. We are drawn closer to the truth of ancient mentalities, riven by pluralism, particularism & local identities. The brilliant introduction sets just the right tone of learning lightly borne: thoughtful & theoretically informed, but brisk, practical, insightful & comprehensive." - Felipe Fernando-Armesto, University of London.
