Professor Kaegi studies the response of the eastern half of the Roman Empire to the disintegration of western Rome, usually dated from the sack of the city of Rome in A.D. 410. Using sources from the fifth and sixth centuries, he shows that the eastern empire had a clear awareness of, interest in, and definite opinions on the disasters that befell Rome in the west. Religious arguments, both Pagan and Christian, tended to dominate the thinking of the intellectuals, but economic and diplomatic activity also contributed to the reaction. This reaction, the author finds, was in a distinctly eastern manner and reflected quite naturally the special conditions prevailing in the eastern provinces. Originally published in 1968.

Thesaurus Cultus et Rituum Antiquorum (ThesCRA) is a major multivolume reference work on all known aspects of Greek, Etruscan, and Roman cults and rituals. Providing both sweeping overview and indepth investigation, ThesCRA covers the period from Homeric times (1000 B.C.) to late Roman times (A.D. 400). Like the first two volumes, Volume III deals with the dynamic elements of cult: divination; prayer, gestures, and acts of prayer; gestures and acts of veneration; oath; malediction; profanation; magic; and consecration and foundation rites. The major contributors to this volume are Pascale Linant de Bellefonds, Walter Burkert, Fulvio Canciani, Fritz Graf, Ulrich Sinn, and Emmanuel Voutiras. The two final volumes in this work are dedicated to static elements of cult such as cult places and their personnel. Those volumes are scheduled for publication in spring 2006. The index will be published in August 2006. ThesCRA was developed by the eminent group of scholars who published the eight double-volumes of LIMC (Lexicon Iconographicum Mythologiae Classicae). Among the many contributors to the ThesCRA volumes are Sir John Boardman, Walter Burkert, Giovannangelo Camporeale, Fritz Graf, Antoine Hermary, Tonio Holscher, Vassilis Lambrinoudakis, John Scheid, Erika Simon, Mario Torelli, and Marion True.
