Ancient Greek Cults: A Guide by Jennifer Larson
2007 | ISBN: 0415324483, 0415491029 | English | 320 pages | EPUB | 4 MB

Using archaeological, epigraphic, & literary sources; & incorporating current scholarly theories, this volume will serve as an excellent companion to any introduction to Greek mythology, showing a side of the Greek gods to which most students are rarely exposed.

Detailed enough to be used as a quick reference tool or text, & providing a readable account focusing on the oldest, most widespread, & most interesting religious practices of the ancient Greek world in the Archaic & Classical periods, Ancient Greek Cults surveys ancient Greek religion through the cults of its gods & goddesses, heroes & heroines.

Jennifer Larson conveniently summarizes a vast amount of material in many languages, normally inaccessible to undergrad students, & explores, in detail, the variety of cults celebrated by the Greeks, how these cults differed geographically, & how each deity was conceptualized in local cult titles & rituals.

Including an introductory chapter on sources & methods, & suggestions for further reading this book will allow readers to gain a fresh perspective on Greek religion.
