    One thought on “Forerunners and Rivals of Christianity from 330 BC to 330 AD”

    1. I have the University Books edition of this venerable text which, as it is written by a thirty-year veteran in the field and is favorably comparable to G.R.S. Mead's Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, is still useful as an introduction and a pleasure to read. Legge is also known in the field for his introduction to the Homer edition of the Pistis Sophia (1924).
