Overview
Excerpt from Janus in Roman Life and Cult: A Study in Roman Religions; A Thesis Presented to the Faculty of the Graduate School in Partial Fulfilment of the for the Degree or Doctor of Philosophy

The conclusions reached are, for the most part, the writer's own, and differ in some respects from the usually accepted ones. However, in the chapters on the Janus Geminus, on the Relation of Janus to Other Deities and on Miscellanies, will be found little that is new. These chapters are inserted merely for the purpose of giving a complete View Of the Janus cult. The theory that the rex sacrorum was a human Jupiter has been advanced by Mr. Grant Allen, Dr. A. B. Cook, Professor Frazer and others. It remained only to add to their arguments, which are mostly anthropological, the evidence of Roman literature, and to carry the theory to the conclusion that, if a human Jupiter, the rex sacrorum was a priest of Jupiter, not of Janus, as has been hitherto maintained. Furthermore, original passages have been given as evidence that this belief accords with the character and ritual of both the rex sacrorum and of the god Janus. Evidence, besides, has been presented to show that Jupiter and Janus are not identical, as some have thought possible, but that they are quite different deities.
