Spencer E Cole
My research centers on the innovative religious cultures of late republican and early imperial Rome. My publications include articles on religion in both the republican and imperial periods, Augustan poetry, and Greek drama. I am also a contributor to the forthcoming Routledge Dictionary of Ancient Mediterranean Religions. Also forthcoming (Cambridge University Press) is my book Cicero and the Rise of Deification at Rome, which examines Cicero's formative experiments with the divinization of humans.
