Graeco-Roman religion in its classic form was polytheistic; on the other hand, monotheistic ideas enjoyed wide currency in ancient philosophy joomla tutorial ebooks. This contradiction provides a challenge for our understanding of ancient pagan religion joomla tutorial ebooks. Certain forms of cult activity, including acclamations of ‘one god’ and the worship of theos hypsistos, the highest god, have sometimes been interpreted as evidence for pagan monotheism joomla tutorial ebooks. This 2010 book discusses pagan monotheism in its philosophical and intellectual context, traces the evolution of new religious ideas in the time of the Roman empire, and evaluates the usefulness of the term ‘monotheism’ as a way of understanding these developments in later antiquity outside the context of Judaism and Christianity joomla tutorial ebooks.
