Michel Humbert, Law and Religion in Ancient Rome
Masters of religion and law, the Pontiffs stamped with a deep similarity the mechanisms of law and of the roman religious spirit. One of the most important consequences of this community of thought is the lack of any rivalling hegemonic claim between law and religion. Law and Religion, in Rome, made an harmonious division of the world between them, without conflicts or overlaps, thus showing an experiment of notable originality.

Key Words : religion, Rome
