This review is from: Arcana Mundi: Magic and the Occult in the Greek and Roman Worlds: A Collection of Ancient Texts (Hardcover)
This is a fantastic book for both the Classicist or modern reader. From a researchers point of view it's an incredible wealth of knowledge. Luck delves into all the expected categories and even some less often discussed. If you are researching such topics in the ancient world this is the book you need to start with. I guarantee you will refer back to it countless times. It will give you comprehensive starting points and ideas.
If these subjects are of interest to you and you are simply looking for a book to inform, this will do quite well. While it's information is central and clearly stated it also gives you the avenues to pursue further study of certain topics. It's full of factual, organized and interesting details pertaining to all matters of ancient magic, occult and religion.
I recommend this to any classicist, researcher, historian or general knowledge seeker!
