Religion, in which the human mind found its main activity, is treated in depth: its distinctive features, the interplay between the traditions of Greece and Roman and the other religions of the East and West, the virtues or powers existing independently of the gods, and the worship of the Emperor. The influence of the philosophers, the Eastern mysteries, Judaism, and Christianity are also discussed, as are literature, art, history, science, and the quality of life for the individual Roman.
