The second volume of A. S. Pease’s edition of Cicero, On the Nature of the Gods, of which the first volume (1955) marked the two-thousandth anniversary of the composition of the work, contains the text, critical apparatus, and extensive commentary for Books II and III (completing the treatise), and is devoted to the exposition and the criticism of the Stoic theology.

This volume should be of particular interest to students of the classical literatures, both Latin and Greek, of the history of philosophy, and of the comparative treatment of the history and philosophy of religion. Students of Christian theology, especially of that of the patristic period, will find here abundant illustrative materials drawn from a wide range of sources, pagan and Christian, ancient and modern, and a full index.
