Product Description

With most of the Christian world honoring Sunday as their day of worship, the question of its origin becomes important.

Over the past hundred years much has been written about the use of the week among ancient pagan peoples. However, little has been done to compile such historical material into an easily accessible book for the general public.

Robert Leo Odom for years has conducted special research on the Sabbath-Sunday question. In Sunday in Roman Paganism, he leads readers through the pages of history showing the rise of the planetary week and its "day of the Sun" in the heathenism of the Roman world during the early centuries of the Christian era.

This book is not a capsulated history of Sunday as a church festival, but rather the history of the planetary week as it was known and used in the pagan world, and to show whether or not its "day of the Sun" was then regarded by pagans as being sacred to their Sun-god.

The book covers the following topics:

  • The Pagan Planetary Week
  • Is the Planetary Week of Babylonian Origin?
  • The Planetary Week in Mesopotamia
  • The Diffusion of Chaldean Astrology
  • The Planetary Week in Rome
  • The Planetary Week in the First Century B. C.
  • The Planetary Week in the First Century A. D.
  • The Planetary Week in the Second Century A. D.
  • The Planetary Week in the Third Century A. D.
  • "The Sun, The Lord of the Roman Empire"
  • "On the Lord's Day of the Sun"
  • The Sunday of Sun Worship
  • The First Civil Sunday Laws
  • Sylvester and the Days of the Week
  • The Planetary Week in the Philocalian Almanac
  • The Power Behind the Planetary Week
