Ancient Mediterranean Sacrifice

Jennifer Wright Knust and Zsuzsanna Varhelyi, "Ancient Mediterranean Sacrifice"
Publisher: Oxford University Press | 2011 | ISBN: 0199738963 | 349 pages | PDF | 2,4 MB

Examining the diverse religious texts and practices of the late Hellenistic and Roman periods, this collection of essays investigates the many meanings and functions of ritual sacrifice in the ancient world. The essays survey sacrificial acts, ancient theories, and literary as well as artistic depictions of sacrifice, showing that any attempt to identify a single underlying significance of sacrifice is futile. Sacrifice cannot be defined merely as a primal expression of violence, despite the frequent equation of sacrifice to religion and sacrifice to violence in many modern scholarly works; nor is it sufficient to argue that all sacrifice can be explained by guilt, by the need to prepare and distribute animal flesh, or by the communal function of both the sacrificial ritual and the meal.
