Nickolas P. Roubekas is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Vienna, Austria. Previously he held a two-year postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of South Africa as a member of the research project ‘Redescribing Graeco-Roman Antiquity,’ a teaching fellowship at the University of Aberdeen, U.K., and a research fellowship at the North-West University, South Africa. He has published articles and book reviews in various journals and is the author of Αναζητώντας τους Θεούς: Θρησκεία, Μύθος, Ουτοπία στον Ευήμερο τον Μεσσήνιο (Vanias, 2011) and An Ancient Theory of Religion: Euhemerism from Antiquity to the Present (Routledge, 2017). His research focuses on the Graeco-Roman world, method and theory in the study of religion, and the disciplinary intersection of Religious Studies, Classics, and Ancient History.

Description

Rather than merely presenting the contents of the book, the preface explains the rationale behind the project, and discusses the two core issues addressed in the chapters of the book: the chasm between Religious Studies and Classical Studies scholarship in the study of ancient religions, and the current theoretical principles employed in the study of ancient religions, usually subsumed under the banners of modernity and postmodernity.
