Cretan Cults and Festivals

 
9780710022967: Cretan Cults and Festivals

Cretan Cults and Festivals, first published in 1962, contains a lengthy treatment of religious practices on Crete and acts as a supplement to the author’s previous account of the socio-political institutions of Cretan aristocracies. The religious traditions of the island are investigated in light of the progress of Cretan political and economic practice: in particular, attention is given to the social needs which the cults and the festivals were intended to satisfy or represent.

This work will be of value to students of Ancient Greek religion, those interested in the relationship between religious conceptions and cultic practise, and the links between societal and religious development.
