With learning that is impressive but lightly worn, he follows the varied fortunes of the god from early Greece to the present day.... Boardman passes very lightly over the fact that the Christians took some of Pan's feature for their devil.... But that is on e of the few themes about which one could have hoped for more comment in Boardman's delightful book. -- The New York Review of Books, Jasper Griffin
