Abstract
Throughout Lux Perpetua, Cumont distinguishes between different agents of religious life. While he attributes the progression of convictions about afterlife to the intellectual circles, it is the masses who guarantee the persistance of previous conceptions. One of the book’s central issues is precisely this interaction between the intellectual elites and the masses. More particularly, how does he explain the presence of tradtional ideas amongst the elites and of new ones, coming from the elites, in the thoughts of the masses? Moreover, a third group is situated, which constantly exceeds this schematic distinction. In this article, we intend to describe the socio-intellectual distinctions made by Cumont in LP, and to define the major problems this scheme poses in relation with the book’s internal logic as wel as the study of roman religion.
