Críticas:

"Although [Pagans] is serious scholarship, it does not take itself too seriously. The result is an engaging view of antiquity few of us have seen.--Booklist

"Trenchantly interprets how an oddball religious cult became the official faith of Rome. . . . It makes for a thoughtful tour of Rome."--New York Times Book Review

"Mr. O'Donnell tells the familiar story of Christianity's heroic age of expansion, from Constantine to Theodosius, with verve and wit."--Wall Street Journal

Mr. O Donnell tells the familiar story of Christianity s heroic age of expansion, from Constantine to Theodosius, with verve and wit. --Wall Street Journal"

James J. O Donnell s fine new book . . . is short but multilayered, erudite and dense. --Cleveland Plain-Dealer"

[A] fascinating and insightful study of the pluralistic pagan gods. This book is a must read for everyone who is interested in either general history or the history of Christianity in particular. --Washington Book Review"

Although [Pagans] is serious scholarship, it does not take itself too seriously. The result is an engaging view of antiquity few of us have seen.--Booklist"

Reseña del editor:

Examines the history of the rise of Christianity as experienced by the adherents of the traditional religions of the ancient world who directly experienced the major disruptions brought about by the rise of what they viewed as an upstart cult.

Descripción Ecco Press, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 163 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A provocative and contrarian religious history that charts the rise of Christianity from the point of view of traditional- religion from the religious scholar and critically acclaimed author of Augustine. Pagans explores the rise of Christianity from a surprising and unique viewpoint: that of the people who witnessed their ways of life destroyed by what seemed then a powerful religious cult. These -pagans- were actually pious Greeks, Romans, Syrians, and Gauls who observed the traditions of their ancestors. To these devout polytheists, Christians who worshipped only one deity were immoral atheists who believed that a splash of water on the deathbed could erase a lifetime of sin. Religious scholar James J. O Donnell takes us on a lively tour of the Ancient Roman world through the fourth century CE, when Romans of every nationality, social class, and religious preference found their world suddenly constrained by rulers who preferred a strange new god. Some joined this new cult, while others denied its power, erroneously believing it was little more than a passing fad. In Pagans, O Donnell brings to life various pagan rites and essential features of Roman religion and life, offers fresh portraits of iconic historical figures, including Constantine, Julian, and Augustine, and explores important themes--Rome versus the east, civilization versus barbarism, plurality versus unity, rich versus poor, and tradition versus innovation--in this startling account.
