"a welcome addition to this distinguished series ... the author has new insights to offer in every chapter ... an impressive achievement, a work of great learning and meticulous documentation yet never dull and always readable ... Curran's excellent catalogue and discussion of the bishop's buildings is (therefore) of special value and interest ... excellent chapter on paganism, Christianity and the Circus Maximus" - Fred S.Kleiner
