This is a complete and thorough history of the Vestal Virgins. I found the book hard to read

Keramar
Interesting review of the Vestal Virgins but a very naive and incorrect view of their functions and purpose in traditional Roman society

I found the book hard to read. Although there is plenty of information, it is not organized in such a way that one gets a holistic view of the Vestal Virgins or their role in ancient Rome.

This book is an excellent source for infomation on the Vestal Virgins. It also provides many ancient and modern sources to consult for further information. It is the best complete reference source out there that I have been able to locate about the Vestals.
