Religions of the Ancient Greeks

Some brief overview of book

This is a book about the religious life of the Greeks from archaic times to the fifth century AD, looked at in the context of a variety of different cities and periods. Simon Price examines local practices and concepts in the light of general Greek ideas, relating them to such issues as gender roles, political life, and the trial of Socrates. He lays emphasis on the reactions to Greek religions of ancient thinkers-Greek, Roman and Christian.

The evidence drawn on is of all kinds: literary, inscriptional and archaeological.
