Roman Imperial Cult: a study of its development in the West from its inception to A.D. 14 McCargar, David Joseph
According to the Instructions for the Preparation of Graduate Theses, the abstract by definition "... is a summary or condensation of the thesis; it states the problem, the methods of investigation followed, and the general conclusions.” The purpose of this thesis is to determine the nature of the Roman Imperial Cult as it developed in the West from the time of its inception to A.D. 14, the year of Augustus' death. The method of investigation has been to examine the epigraphic, archaeological, numismatic and literary evidence. The reader is referred to the final chapter for a statement of the conclusions; the complexity of their relationships is such that they do not lend themselves to generalization.
