This is a new addition to the multivolume reference on all known aspects of Greek, Etruscan, and Roman cults and rituals. "ThesCRA" delivers both a sweeping overview and an in-depth investigation from Homeric times (1000 BCE) to late Roman times (AD 400). Illustrated scholarly articles in English, French, Italian, and German treat such topics as processions, sacrifices, libations, dedications, purification, initiation, divination, prayer, asylum, oaths, maledictions, banquets, music, dance, cult places, cult statues, and cult implements. The forty-one authors of this latest volume write about public and private life, guilds, priesthoods, colleges and other institutions, law, diplomacy, war, festivals, and religious links to neighbouring societies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"ThesCRA, thanks to its scale, its intelligent selections, and its bibliographies, opens a new era for anyone concerned with the Realien of ancient cult."--Greece and Rome


"This publication is a truly magnificent undertaking that will be a major reference work for decades to come."--Minerva


"The Thesaurus continues the good work of the Lexicon (LIMC) in making it impossible for archaeologists and art historians to neglect the ancient written sources, or for epigraphers and literary specialists to underrate the material record. Best of all, when we have the full set of dynamic and static elements, we shall all be able to reflect on the inward and spiritual meaning of all this hard evidence with far more information at our fingertips than we have had before."--Times Higher Education Supplement


"Bigger than anything previously attempted in this most challenging sector of classical studies."--Times Higher Education Supplement
