The ancient Romans believed that the Gods sent signs of future events to them through the flight of birds, meteorological disturbances and other natural phenomena. These signs influenced every sphere of ancient life, both public and private, from a state's decision to go to war or make peace, hold an election or meet a public crisis to an individual's business, marriage or travel plans. The articles in this book illustrate how the various Roman divinatory techniques were inter-woven into the structures of ancient society as well as how they were used in literary contexts. The intriguing question of the alleged doublethink among Roman intellectuals in their attitude to Divination is an important theme taken up in this book.burglagu a#39;civil lawa#39; (alt; OE burg + ON lo3g /OE lagu) 0 1 PrudGl 1 (Meritt) 14: ca1000 x 1050 folclagu 5 1 LawNorthu 46: ca1028 ...
