Summary "The aim of this book is to present the path the Romans followed in shaping the culture of the ruling classes of the Allies between the years of the conquest in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC and the age of Augustus, when a unified culture of Italy emerges as a pillar of imperial power. Taking an anthropological approach, Mario Torelli places special emphasis on the religious values and cult traditions that developed during the archaic period and the early attempts to colonize Latium, and which were subsequently spread by the Romans throughout Italy by means of Latin colonies."--BOOK JACKET.
