Bibliography

There is little recent work concerning religion in Cicero (in the sense of analyzing all his works), although the numerous commentaries on the works of Cicero on this subject may be of use. See, for example, The Nature of the Gods, translated with an introduction by P. G. Walsh (Oxford, 1997). The commentary of Arthur Stanley Pease remains essential: M. T. Ciceronis: De natura deorum, I–II (Cambridge, Mass., 1955–1958; reprint, 1979). See also Pease's commentary on De divinatione (Urbana, Ill., 1923; reprint, Darmstadt, Germany, 1963) and De fato (reprint, Darmstadt, 1963). For various aspects of Cicero's concern with religious matters, see:

Auvray-Assayas, Clara. Modèles anthropologiques romains dans le De natura deorum. Paris, 1994. See pages 207–219.
