A great academic coverage of this early religion. Great for general knowledge and for research puposes. Well footnoted and documented. One needs to focus when reading it, but it is easily understood. Highly recommend it to scholars and anyone who is interested in the evolution of religion thrpughout the world.

This is still an authoritative book in this mysterious oriental religion that drew on many aspects of Christianity. Although more recent research may have eclipsed some of Cumont's findings and statements, it is a good overview of Mithraism. Read this book to get up to speed on the "Cattle thief" god whom many Roman legionaries followed in the 2nd-5th centuries.

I bought this as reference book on my Kindle, but the book must be a mess as the Kindle edition widows and orphans footnotes and illustrations from page to page so that it's hard to keep straight. I couldn't even finish it.

Great content; however, this book was translated from another language. Therefore, it is very difficult to understand the idioms and syntax used throughout.

Reviewers say Cumont's work is the bedrock standard on understanding Mithraism. I found this book helpful, but a little out of date. I found Payam Nabarz's book more readable and informative. But I do appreciate the background I got from reading Cumont first.

Have a collection of items from this religion of Roman soldiers and Senators. Adds lots of interesting facts.
Cumont's work is generally considered to be the quintessential work on the Mithraic cult. His book presents a well researched and easily readably description of this religion. Mostly he focuses upon how the religion was spread in the Roman Empire, where it originated and some of its basic dogmas. However, if you are looking for a description of the secret initiation rituals you will have to look elsewhere. While he does mention these rituals in brief, there is no extensive description or analysis on them.
