A collection of papers with new insights on ancient religion, read at a colloquium in honour of Professor H.S. Versnel ("Inconsistencies in Greek and Roman Religion"). The contributions cover many areas of the religious experience of the Greeks and Romans: myth and ritual (W. Burkert); the gods (F. Zeitlin); cult; festivals; and sacrifice. Several papers consider methodological problems and the progress of scholarship; they highlight the contribution of H.S. Versnel to the field. The papers are based on a wide range of sources: Pagan and Christian, literary and epigraphical and iconographical.
