Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter gives an overview of concepts discussed in this book. The book explains the religious mutations within the Graeco-Roman Empire. The book provides both coherent and colorful array of various facets of mutations that affected the Roman Empire. It selects a series of entries, both thematic and methodological, likely to reflect the current thinking on the subject. The book explains how religious  practices, beliefs, emotions, requirements, rules of life, participation, saying, and coaching fit together. Fifty years after the foundation of the series EPRO, the book aims to avoid the division between the supposedly "Roman" or "Graeco-Roman" and the "Oriental" by linking the available information relating the different major areas, such as the relation between local and global, the place of emotions in relation to soteriological and initiatory aspects, strategies of integration and negotiation of identities. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: EPRO; Graeco-Roman Empire; religious  beliefs; religious mutations; religious  practices
