These volumes contribute to the manifold relationship between polytheism and monotheism in the religions of the Ancient Near East and the Mediterranean world including the current discussions in Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianiy and Islam. In all the religions that are dealt with, the terms polytheism and monotheism prove to be too vague to describe the various manifestations appropriately.
