Chapter Summary

This chapter offers a reference guide that highlights the diversity of the religious world of Late Antiquity both within and between different religions and across the broad spectrum of spiritual and physical experiences revealed through the study of asceticism, holy persons, relics, pilgrimage and magic. The bibliography provided is intended to aid both scholars desiring further knowledge and students seeking initial guidance on subjects of personal interest. Each section is prefaced by a brief introduction highlighting particular themes and debates and identifying important reading, and the general works at the beginning of each entry can be consulted for further bibliographic assistance. Asceticism and Monasticism receive their own section for reasons that are self-evident, as too do Martyrs, Holy Men and Women; Relics and Icons; and Pilgrimage. In all these sections the bibliographic entries cover both literary and archaeological studies.

Keywords: asceticism; late antiquity; magic; monasticism; pilgrimage; religious diversity
