Theorizing “Religion” in Antiquity is a formidable accomplishment, bringing together scholars from various disciplines, convincing them to reflect on their usage of concepts like “religion,” and applying a self-critical perspective throughout. One critical remark, here hardly at the right place, is that I hope that “theorizing” ancient religion will come to involve more than the current definition-and-applicability-debate. For now, this volume models the type of conversations we should be having within the study of ancient religion(s)—and beyond. As such, it is highly recommended.
