This course will explore ancient Greek and Roman religions,
particularly traditional “paganism,” which we will contextualize by
considering pre-classical evidence, influential foreign traditions,
newly emerging sects, and philosophical criticism
and “alternatives.”  We will consider themes such as ritual
practices, death and the afterlife, magic, the concept of
conversion, and the roles of belief, personal devotion, and ethics.
