In summing up the contribution of this volume, adjectives abound: diverse, up-to-date, interesting, helpful, stimulating… The overall interplay of literary and cultural studies of ancient religious groups with research on site-specific material culture remains a promising venue for moving forward in our understanding of Greco-Roman religions… This volume is an essential resource for anyone working on any aspect of ancient Corinth, and methodologically of much interest and use to those working on religious communities during the Greco-Roman period.—Richard S. Ascough, Catholic Biblical Quarterly

New Testament scholars will find this a very useful volume, especially for the archaeological discussions, which are full of details and illuminating evidence presented in maps and illustrations.—Peter Oakes, Journal for the Study of the New Testament
