303 Versnel, H. S. INCONSISTENCIES IN GREEK AND ROMAN RELIGION I Ter Unus: Isis, Dionysus, Hermes - Three Studies in Henotheism
E. J. Brill 1990 9004092668 / 9789004092662 Softcover Good+ 
Scholar's name to ffep. Underlining and marginalia in pen by scholar Janssen. Book has very light shelfwear otherwise. ; Studies in Greek and Roman Religion, Vol 6; Vol. 1; 267 pages; This is the first of a two-volume collection of studies in inconsistencies in Greek and Roman religion. Their common aim is to argue for the historical relevance of various types of ambiguity and dissonance. The first volume focuses on the central paradoxes in ancient henotheism. The term "henotheism" - a modern formation after the stereotyped acclamation: #EIS O QEOS# ("one is the god"), common to early Christianity and contemporaneous paganism - denotes the specific devotion to one particular god without denying the existence of, or even cultic attention to, other gods. After its prime in the 1920s and 1930s the term fell into disuse. Nonetheless, the notion of henotheism represents one of the most remarkable and significant shifts in Graeco-Roman religion.

305 Vidal-Naquet, Pierre; Szegedy-Maszak, Andrew (Tr. ) THE BLACK HUNTER Forms of Thought and Forms of Society in the Greek World
The Johns Hopkins University Press 1986 0801832519 / 9780801832512 Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Dustjacket has edgewear with chipping and a few closed tears. Minor discoloration to cloth. ; With a foreword by Bernard Knox. ; 392 pages; The black hunter travels through the mountains and forests of Greek mythology, living on the frontier of the city-state, of adulthood, of class, of ethics, of sexuality. Taking its title from this figure, The Black Hunter approaches the Greek world from its margins and charts the elaborate system of oppositions that pervaded Greek culture and society: cultivated and wild, citizen and foreigner, real and imaginary, god and man. Organizing his discussions around four principle themes -- space and time; youth and warriors; women, slaves, and artisans; and the city of vision and of reality -- Pierre Vidal-Naquet focuses on the congruence of the textual and the actual, on the patterns that link literary, philosophical, and historical works with such social activities as war, slavery, education, and commemoration. The Black Hunter probes the interplay of world view, language, and social practice "to bring into dialogue that which does not naturally communicate according to the usual criteria of historical judgement.

310 Walker, Henry John THESEUS AND ATHENS
Oxford University Press 1995 0195089081 / 9780195089080 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Underlining in pen throughout text. Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. ; Theseus is celebrated as the greatest of Athenian heroes. This work explores what he meant to the Athenians at the height of their city-state in the fifth century B. C. Assembling material that has been scattered in scholarly works, Henry Walker examines the evidence for the development of themyth and cult of Theseus in the archaic age. He then looks to major works of classical literature in which Theseus figures, exploring the contradictions between the archaic, primitive side of his character and his refurbished image as the patron of democracy. His ambiguous nature as outsider, flouting accepted standards of behavior, while at the same time being a hero-king and a representative of higher ideals, is analyzed through his representations in the work of Bacchylides, Euripides, and Sophocles. This is the only work of scholarship that examines the literary representation ofTheseus so thoroughly. It brings to life a literary character whose virtues, flaws, and contradictions belong in no less a degree to his creators, the people of Athens. ; 0.85 x 9.32 x 6.32 Inches; 240 pages; Theseus is celebrated as the greatest of Athenian heroes.

311 Walsh, David DISTORTED IDEALS IN GREEK VASE-PAINTING The World of Mythological Burlesque
Cambridge University Press 2008 052189641X / 9780521896412 Hardcover Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket 
Remainder mark (black marker line) to top textblock. Else very light shelfwear to book. Dustjacket is protected in mylar. ; This book examines Greek vase-paintings that depict humorous, burlesque, and irreverent images of Greek mythology and the gods. Many of the images present the gods and heroes as ridiculous and ugly. While the narrative content of some images may appear to be trivial, others address issues that are deeply serious. When placed against the background of the religious beliefs and social frameworks from which they spring, these images allow us to explore questions relating to their meaning in particular communities. Throughout, we see indications that Greek vase-painters developed their own comedic narratives and visual jokes. The images enhance our understanding of Greek society in just the same way as their more sober siblings in "serious" art. ; 1.04 x 9.31 x 6.34 Inches; 450 pages

320 West, M. L. THE HESIODIC CATALOGUE OF WOMEN Its Nature, Structure, and Origins
Oxford Clarendon Press 1985 0198140347 / 9780198140344 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Dustjacket has very minor shelfwear and rubbing. ; The Catalogue of Women is an Ancient Greek poem. Ancient writers sometimes attributed it to Hesiod, although the poem contains a few references to events and things after Hesiod's time that could suggest that they were later added or that the epic is of a completely different author. Since Hesiod is known to us only as the author of the Works and Days and the Theogony, which may not have the same date or author, the distinction here is unclear. Since the dating of the poem is one of the most problematic issues surrounding it, the poem's author remains anonymous. ; 193 pages

Cambridge University Press 2008 0521607264 / 9780521607261 Softcover Near Fine 
A unique resource, 'The Cambridge Companion to Greek Mythology' is essential reading for understanding not only Greek myth, but also its enormous impact on art, architecture, literature, politics and philosophy across the ages. More than a compendium of isolated facts, 'The Cambridge Companion to Greek Mythology' is thoughtfully composed by a team of international experts who highlight important themes in three sections. The first part examines oral and written Greek mythology and the uses of these myths from the epic poetry of the eighth century BC to the mythographic catalogs of the early centuries AD. The second section looks at the relationship between ancient Greek myth and Greek culture and investigates the Roman appropriation of the Greek mythic tradition. Section three follows the reception of Greek myth from the Middle Ages to modernity, taking in such factors as feminist scholarship, cinema and literature. Important for its reach and breadth, its integrated approach and its up-to-date treatment, 'The Cambridge Companion to Greek Mythology' is fundamental for anyone seeking a broader understanding of the myths and their influence on western tradition. ; Cambridge Companions to Literature; 552 pages
