Authors-meet-critics: Dylan M. Burns, Almut-Barbara Renger, eds.. New Antiquities: Transformations of Ancient Religion in the New Age and Beyond. Equinox, 2019.
This edited collection offers a variety of perspectives on how individuals and groups appeal to, reconceptualize, and reinvent the religious world of the ancient Mediterranean to legitimize developments in contemporary religious culture. We seek proposals from scholars in related fields who wish to respond to, engage with, or offer a critique of the book as a whole or to specific chapters. Papers engaging themes of the impact of scholarship on religious life and development of NRMs especially welcome. The editors have been invited to respond.
