MEDIA REVIEWS

"This publication is a truly magnificent undertaking that will be a major reference work for decades to come."--Minerva


"ThesCRA, thanks to its scale, its intelligent selections, and its bibliographies, opens a new era for anyone concerned with the Realien of ancient cult."--Greece and Rome


"The Thesaurus continues the good work of the Lexicon (LIMC) in making it impossible for archaeologists and art historians to neglect the ancient written sources, or for epigraphers and literary specialists to underrate the material record. Best of all, when we have the full set of dynamic and static elements, we shall all be able to reflect on the inward and spiritual meaning of all this hard evidence with far more information at our fingertips than we have had before."--Times Higher Education Supplement


"Bigger than anything previously attempted in this most challenging sector of classical studies."--Times Higher Education Supplement


"The most comprehensive and authoritative reference work on Greek and Roman religious practices."--Choice
