This book examines the organization of religion--Christian, pagan, and Jewish--in the Roman Empire at the time of Constantine and Augustine. The author argues that because official pagan religion was inextricably tied to the structure of individual cities, Christianity was the only religion that could unite the inhabitants of the Empire as a whole.
