Prayer From Alexander To Constantine presents a diverse selection
of prayer chosen by over 40 different historians, all specialists
in their respective areas of Graeco-Roman literature. This
collaboration gives the book a range and depth that no individual
author could hope to rival.
Each selection includes an introductory essay, followed by a new
English translation of the prayer, accompanied by critical notes
and biography. In this way the reader is able to gain an insight
into the variety of subjects and styles involved in people's
communications with their gods in antiquity.
The volume will be a key text for students engaged in courses which
explore the period's history and theologies. There is no comparable
anthology available in English. The volume will also be of value to
the general reader interested in the history of this period and
anyone interested in the forms of prayer.
