Since I was a child I have read Greek myths, so I had a rough idea of Greek cosmogony (Chaos, Gaiai, Uranus, Cronus, etc.), the Olympian gods, and Greek heroes (Heracles, Theseus, Odysseus), but I still was often disoriented reading Guthrie's by: Many books about the later Roman Empire concentrate on wars and Barbarian attacks in Northern Europe.

They lose their reader in their endless campaigns. What I like about this book is that it is focused on cultural, religious and philosophical changes, particularly in the Greek. The chronicle of that war, the Iliad, furnishes the first clear picture of the early Greek religion as it evolved from a blending of Achaean, Dorian, Minoan, Egyptian, and Asian elements.

The Religion of Ancient Greece by J. Harrison Febru J by Lichtenberg The Religion of Ancient Greece is an inquiry into the nature of Greek religion ; an attempt to discover its origin how it resembles and how it differs from other religions.

Greek religion is not the same as Greek mythology, which is concerned with traditional tales, though the two are closely interlinked. Greek Religion is not a particularly easy read, but it is an enlightening one.

In fact, I would have a hard time envisioning a more useful one. The problem is in the multifarious nature of Greek polytheism: It's way too easy to get lost in the byways of Greek theogony, as Roberto Calasso demonstrated in his excellent The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony/5.

RELIGION IN ANCIENT GREECE The Ancient Greeks were a complex civilization which lasted from the 8th to 6th century BC.

Their religion was polytheistic, consisting of 12 major gods as well as several other minor gods and demigods. The Greeks believed that the Gods would offer. In this brief but highly informative book Jan Bremmer presents an outline of Greek religion in the classical period.

After a survey of its main characteristics, he offers a clear and innovative view of the great gods and heroes as well as their sanctuaries and also the main myths, rituals and mysteries: from Athena to Zeus, from sacrifice to the puritan Orphics, from the Indo-European roots to.

The Greeks had no religious texts they regarded as "revealed" scriptures of sacred origin, but very old texts including Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, and the Homeric hymns (regarded as later productions today), Hesiod's Theogony and Works and Days, and Pindar's Odes were regarded as having authority and perhaps being inspired; they usually begin with an invocation to the Muses for inspiration.

This handbook offers both students and teachers of ancient Greek religion a comprehensive overview of the current state of scholarship on ancient Greek religion from the Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods. Each chapter provides not only key information about its subject but also reflection on the developments in the scholarship in that area, with a special focus on current problems.
