Dumézil, Georges  
La Religion Romaine Arquaïque. Avec un appendice sur la religion des Étrusques

Publisher: Payot, Paris, 1974. Bibliothèque Historique.
700 p., index; 23 cm. "Deuxième édition revue et corrigée." "Ce livre présente la religion romaine dans son organisation primitive et dans son évolution jusqu'aux approches de la restauration augustéenne. Une place prépondérante est restituée à la théologie, qui justifie tout le reste et done on a récemment contesté jusqu'à l'existence. L'analyse des faits romains et la comparaison avec ce qu'on sait maintenant de la religion des ancêtres indo-européens des Latins, permet en effet de constater, aux origines, non la pauvreté ni l'incohérence, mais un système riche articulé, hérité en partie de la préhistoire indo-européenne avec d'intelligentes adaptations, en partie produit par les conditions d'habitat et d'environnement." "Cette seconde édition apporte à la première d'importants changements et beaucoup de compléments." Paper; VG. Copy of Albert S. Cook, poet & critic, with his pencil markings. Stock#21609.
