Prof. Drake publishes A Century of Miracles: Christians, Pagans, Jews, and the Supernatural, 312-410

Professor Drake’s new book offers a fresh examination of a complex polytheistic period in Roman history, surveying a wide range of faiths and belief systems during this eventful century. It offers a thoroughly researched assessment of the supernatural and its sociological and cultural effects on history down to the present. Contemporary readers engaged in religious discourse will find the analysis especially illuminating.
