"This collection will surely prove to be a gold mine for those of us who teach the religions of late antiquity. It provides a lively and kaleidoscopic view of an entire era of religious activity and development. It will also be a tool for scholars. . . .The emphasis on practice is a completely new feature in a collection of this kind; there is simply nothing like it."--Patricia Cox Miller, author of "Dreams in Late Antiquity"
