Scholars of the last generation devoted much attention to Late Antiquity:
to its institutions, economy, social relationships, culture. Nevertheless,
it was thanks to Arnaldo Momigliano that not inferior consideration has
been given to religion as an important factor of  transformation and
development. Fifthy years after the publication of his The conflict
between Paganism and Christianity (Oxford in 1963), a group of scholars
wanted to reflect on the relationships between Pagans and Christians, in
order to measure how much his legacy has been developed by the
contemporary research.
