Product description

No area of Greek life was wholly untouched by religion, and a basic knowledge of this aspect of life is essential to anyone seeking a proper understanding of the classical world. In this engaging survey Robert Garland brings out the unique quality of Greek religion - its practical and worldly approach to man's relationship with the divine - and shows how religious ritual was integral to the daily routine of both public and private life.
