    Interesting review of the Vestal Virgins but a very naive and incorrect view of their functions and purpose in traditional Roman society

    A god book for Roman religion This book consists of two part historical and archaeological But there are no revue of a role, which the vestal play in political life on Ancient Rome and sometimes author use the archaic words, that s why sometimes to understand what author wanted to say is very difficult.

  3. Mary Ann Vestal Mary Ann Vestal says:

    This is a complete and thorough history of the Vestal Virgins It includes religious and civil duties, festivals, and even the dress of the Vestals It references close to 100 authors, including ancient texts There are about a dozen illustrations of Vestal memorabilia Illustratons include not only the usual statues and diagrams of the buildings, but even coins struck to commemorate the re building of the Atrium Vestae after the fire of A.D 191.I found the book hard to read Although there is plenty of information, it is not organized in such a way that one gets a holistic view of the Vestal Virgins or their role in ancient Rome.
