It features opening and closing essays by Karl Galinsky, a foremost authority on Roman history and culture.

The authors are classicists, biblical and religious scholars, historians, and archaeologists, with expertise in various cultural milieus. Reflecting this spectrum of backgrounds and interests, the book addresses issues and phenomena covering a broad expanse of subjects, locations, and methodological concerns.The contributors are Jeffrey Brodd, Warren Carter, Nancy Evans, Steven J. Friesen, Karl Galinsky, James Constantine Hanges, Robin M. Jensen, James S. McClaren, Eric M. Orlin, Jonathan L. Reed, Daniel N. Schowalter,
