(p.783) Conclusion
The Last Pagans of Rome

Alan Cameron

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the discussions in the book and presents some concluding thoughts. The question of when paganism really, finally, ended depends on a series of further questions, of definition, interpretation, and context. Above all, it depends on constantly changing perceptions of paganism. We should not confuse the end of paganism with the victory of Christianity, nor should we assume that it was active pagan opposition that kept certain pagan practices alive.

Keywords:   Roman pagans, paganism, pagan practices, Christianity
