The study of a religion’s history includes the study of the history of those who espoused it, together with their spiritual, ethical, political, and intellectual experiences.

Greek religion as it is currently understood probably resulted from the mingling of religious beliefs and practices between the incoming Greek-speaking peoples who arrived. Ancient Greek Religion provides an introduction to the fundamental beliefs, practices, and major deities of Greek religion.

Focuses on Athens in the classical period Includes detailed discussion of Greek gods and heroes, myth and cult, and vivid descriptions of Greek religion as it was practiced Ancient texts are presented in boxes to promote thought and discussion, and abundant.

This book considers how religious beliefs and cultic rituals were given expression in the world of the Greek citizen. It covers first ritual and then myth, rooting the account in the practices of the classical city while also taking seriously the world of the imagination.

To our modern concept, there was no 'holy' book for the Greeks. There was public ritual and various writers wrote about gods, described various events involving the gods, etc. But there was no form of 'this is the one true word of The God', as is.

Religion wasn't simply a part of the lives of the ancient Greeks and the ancient Romans; religion was the lens through which they understood the universe and all the events within it. Although the religions of the ancient Greeks and Romans are virtually extinct in their original forms, they live on in the cultures, imaginations, and even the Adherents: ancient form extinct; various modern revivals.

Greek religion is a subject of absorbing interest, essential for the understanding of history and culture, but often puzzling and elusive.

This collection of essays ranges over many aspects of Greek civil life, looking at the ways in which religion manifested itself in institutions, art and literature, and tracing the attitudes that lay behind the manifold cults and customs.

This book is a wonderful companion for anyone interested in learning more about the political-social roles of religion in ancient Greece.

Religion in the Ancient Greek City by Pantel, Pauline Schmitt,Zaidman, Louise Bruit and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Religion in ancient Rome includes the ancestral ethnic religion of the city of Rome that the Romans used to define themselves as a people, as well as the religious practices of peoples brought under Roman rule, in so far as they became widely followed in Rome and Italy.

The Romans thought of themselves as highly religious, and attributed their success as a world. The Classical Era in ancient Greece fell between the Persian wars and the death of Alexander the Great, when Greek city-states, especially Athens, achieved a remarkable political and cultural synthesis.

Greek philosophy from the period saw human reason as a part of divine nature and pursued the virtuous life based on knowledge of the good. There is none, at least in the sense a Christian or a Muslim would use the term “sacred text”. Don’t let the word “religion” mislead you; it’s just a terminus technicus used for practical reasons; if you take it out, there are only a few similarit.
