Gods, Temples, and Ritual Practices: The Transformation of Religious Ideas and Values in Roman Gaul
The Roman conquest of western Europe had many consequences for the local inhabitants; although the social-political and economical circumstances have been investigated thoroughly, very little attention has been paid to effects on religious life. In this book for the first time a consistent description is given of the religious representations and the ritual customs of the populations of northern Gaul. Guiding principle is the proposition that 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 for scientists from various disciplines.
