Women's Ritual Competence in the Greco-Roman Mediterranean

Women's Ritual Competence in the Greco-Roman Mediterranean
Tags: Esther Eidinow

Contributions in this volume demonstrate how, across the ancient Mediterranean and over hundreds of years, women’s rituals intersected with the political, economic, cultural, or religious spheres of their communities in a way that has only recently started to gain sustained academic attention. The volume aims to tease out a number of different approaches and contexts, and to expand existing studies of women in the ancient world as well as scholarship on religious and social history.
