9780860786085: Image and Value in the Graeco-Roman World: Studies in Mithraism and Religious Art (Collected Studies Series, 551)

This collection of 9 essays, dating mostly from 1972-1980, examines the way in which images contributed to the creation of religious meanings in the Graeco-Roman world. Special attention is paid to Mithraism's notion of the sacred space, its use of metaphors taken from the natural world, and its ideals of social action. Essays include a new Mithraic relief from Rome; the moment of death - art and the ritual of Greek sacrifice; and Mithraism and Roman society.
