Paganism was not a unified tradition and consequently the papers cover a wide social and intellectual spectrum. Particular emphasis is given to several aspects of the topic: first, monotheistic belief in late antique philosophical ideals and its roots in classical antiquity and the Near East- second, monistic Gnosticism- third, the revelatory tradition as expressed in oracular literature- and finally, the monotheistic trend in popular religion.
