Gods, the State, and the Individual by Scheid, John
Gods, the State, and the Individual: Reflections on Civic Religion in Rome
by Scheid, John
 
Roman religious practice has long been dismissed as a system of borrowed structures unmarked by any true piety, but Scheid contends that this judgment stems from a misplaced expectation that the basis of religion lies in an individual's personal and revelatory relationship with his or her god. He argues that Roman religion, when viewed in the light of secular history as opposed to Christian theology, emerges as a legitimate phenomenon in which rituals, both public and private, enforced a sense of communal, civic, and state identity.
