This volume collects essays by Guy G. Stroumsa on the intertwined religious history in late antiquity, reflected in the forms of belief and practice among pagans, Christians, Jews, Gnostics, and Manichaeans. The author shows how the relationship between polytheistic, monotheistic and dualist systems as well as rituals leads to a double dynamism of beliefs and transformations of religious ethos.
