    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 168.00

    Historiographical documents from Ancient Greece have existed at least since the time of Herodotus; an historical awareness developed before his time, as evidenced in historical omnia, epic literature from Mesopotamia, in the texts of Hittite letters and treaties, and in Egyptian sources.

  • Philosophy and Salvation in Greek Religionby Vishwa Adluri

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 182.00

    Although Greek authors treat philosophy and theology in the closest contiguity, most scholarship still reflects the 19th century prejudice according to which philosophy is a rational enterprise, while theology is a dogmatic discipline. Yet, as this volume demonstrates, Greek philosophy emerges from and remains closely linked to the archaic... more...

    What did the Romans know about their gods? Why did they perform the rituals of their religion, and what motivated them to change those rituals? To these questions Clifford Ando proposes simple answers: In contrast to ancient Christians, who had faith, Romans had knowledge, and their knowledge was empirical in orientation. In other words, the Romans... more...

  • Public and Private in Ancient Mediterranean Law and Religionby Clifford Ando; Jörg Rüpke

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    The public/private distinction is fundamental to modern theories of the family, religion and religious freedom, and state power, yet it has different salience, and is understood differently, from place to place and time to time. The volume examines the public/private distinction in the cultures and religions of the ancient Mediterranean,... more...
