Description

Animal sacrifice was the central act in all ancient Mediterranean religions, but the unique features of Greek practice continue to challenge modern interpreters. This book draws together the current work of archaeologists, historians and experts in Greek literature and art to re-examine the role of sacrifice in Greek life across the Mediterranean, from the poems of Homer to the revival of sacrificial practice under the Roman emperor Julian in the fourth century CE.
