201 Dillon, Matthew PILGRIMS AND PILGRIMAGE IN ANCIENT GREECE
Routledge 1997 0415127750 / 9780415127752 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
Explores the religious motivations for pilgrimage and reveals the main preoccupations of worshippers in Ancient Greece. Dillon examines the main sanctuaries of Delphi, Epidauros and Olympia, as well as the lesser known oracle of Didyma in Asia Minor and the festivals at the Isthmus of Corinth. He discusses the modes of travel to the sites, means of communication between pilgrims and the religious and ritual practices at the sanctuaries themselves. A unique insight into pilgrimage in ancient Greece is presented, focusing on the diverse aspects of pilgrimage; the role of women and children, the religious festivals of different ethnic groups and the colorful celebrations including music, athletics and equestrian events; 308 pages

Softcover is fine with very light shelfwear to DJ. ; Collection D'Études Anciennes 145. Série Grecque; 448 pages; Tuer quelqu'un, ou l'absolue transgression : l'Antiquité grecque, une fois de plus, nous parle. > Le parricide Oreste subit les assauts des impitoyables Érinyes. Dans la plaine de Troie, Achille et Hector, tueurs héroïques, sont portés par un instinct de mort qui a nom Arès. Aux rives de la mer Noire, vers 400 avant J. -C. , les rescapés de l'armée des Dix Mille prennent part à une mystérieuse cérémonie de purification. Ailleurs, l'orateur Antiphon agite une étrange croyance : la souillure de l'homicide se répandrait partout, le fantôme de la victime criant vengeance. Et, dans un coin de la Sicile, la magie de rituels curieux chasserait les démons du meurtre. L'Athènes démocratique, inventive, n'est pas en reste ; ici, elle laisse s'exiler l'assassin, s'il le veut, avant même la fin de son procès ; là, elle promulgue une loi encourageant l'assassinat de quelque apprenti tyran qui menacerait son existence. Mais Aristote met en garde : l'homicide constitue en toute circonstance, sans exception, une faute. > Littérature, histoire, droit, philosophie, anthropologie contribuent à cette étude approfondie des représentations, lato sensu, de la mort violente chez les Grecs. Le tableau d'ensemble est, pourrait-on dire, versicolore. Versicolores, aussi, les paroles ailées de l'immortel Homère, pour l'instant fatal où le guerrier s'effondre : > "La mort rouge et le puissant destin se sont emparés de ses yeux". Versicolores, aussi, les paroles ailées de l'immortel Homère, pour l'instant fatal où le guerrier s'effondre : > "La mort rouge et le puissant destin se sont emparés de ses yeux".

Franz Steiner Verlag 2011 3515098550 / 9783515098557 Softcover Near Fine 
Very light shelfwear else Fine. ; Potsdamer Altertumswissenschaftliche Beitrage (Pawb) Band 34; 532 pages; English summary: The ability to translate the inner world of ideas into image displays is one of the original human characteristics. The figments of imagination translated into the communicative sphere as images represent not only external forms, but also memories, conveyed fears, hopes, or other emotions. This is especially true as it pertains to religion. But what image of God did the majority of Greeks of the ancient world hold, and what were their godly images? The book by Peter Eich focuses on the prevailing ideas that religious image production held in Greece, as well as on the community-building function of religious images over the course of time. Contemporary testimonies are fully investigated and reinterpreted in their idiom and their contexts of meaning. German text. German description: Die Fahigkeit, die innere Vorstellungswelt in Bilddarstellungen umzusetzen, gehort zu den ursprunglichen menschlichen Eigenschaften. Die aus der Vorstellung in die kommunikative Sphare ubersetzten Bilder reproduzieren nicht nur aussere Formen, sondern verankern auch Erinnerungen oder transportieren Angste, Hoffnungen oder andere Emotionen. Dies gilt besonders auf dem Gebiet der Religion. Doch welches Gottesbild hatte die Mehrheit der Griechen der Antike, und was waren Gotterbilder fur sie?Das Buch von Peter Eich konzentriert sich auf die in Hellas vorherrschenden Vorstellungen, die die religiose Bildproduktion bedingten, und die gemeinschaftsstiftende Funktion sakraler Bilder im Wandel der Zeit. Dazu werden die Aussagen der Zeitgenossen in ihrem Idiom und in ihren Sinnzusammenhangen umfassend untersucht und mit Hilfe eines verbreiterten Methodenkanons neu gedeutet.

247 Erickson, Brice L. CRETE IN TRANSITION Pottery Styles and Island History in the Archaic and Classical Periods
American School of Classical Studies at Athens 2010 0876615450 / 9780876615454 Softcover Fine 
Hesperia Supplement, No. 45; 380 pages; This work presents a classification system and absolute chronology for black-gloss wares from Crete, establishing the first local and regional ceramic sequences during the period from 600 to 400 B.C. This new chronological foundation of datable pottery from excavated sites fills in the so-called 6th/5th-century gap and dispels the prevailing view that this was a period of decline in population and one of artistic and cultural impoverishment. The 6th century heralded important changes in Cretan society, reflected in the reorganization of burial grounds, new patterns of sanctuary dedication, and the circulation of exotica among the elite. The study reveals unsuspected connections with mainland Greece, especially Sparta and Athens. Historians and archaeologists will find the author's conclusions, and their implications, to be of considerable interest.
