Louise Bruit Zaidman and Pauline Schmitt Pantel, Religion in the Ancient Greek City, translated by Paul Cartledge Cambridge Cambridge University Press, 2004 Pp 280 Paperback. After reading about sacrifices at the ancient Jerusalem Temple, I was curious as to how sacrifices were carried out in the Greek world To answer this question, I turned to this book, which was one that was on my undergrad syllabus a class with Prof Sellew Outside of Walter Burkert s book, Greek Religion, this seems to be the best introduction to ancient Greek paganism. originally this book was written in French, and then translated by Paul Cartledge However, the authors state in their preface that this translation has a number of improvements, so instead of thinking of this as a translation, one could think of it as a second edition. The main thesis of this book is that one can t approach Greek Rel Solid introduction to Greek religion with an emphasis placed on understanding it in its original context There are some sections where the translator stuck to the original French syntax too closely, but overall it s a very interesting book. As an intro text to how Greek religion worked in day to day urban life especially Athens , I don t think the authors really could have done a better job There aren t any new or shocking revelations, but it is readable, concise, and occasionally funny There s also a useful list of books that the authors recommend for readers interested in particular topics.
One of the best books about Hellenistic religious practices I have ever read This book takes such a through look at Greek religion history, gender, culture, class, politics, practices, etc I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the topic.
