About this Item

This volume is dedicated to cult in the ancient city of Sagalassos within the geographical frame of Pisidia. The book starts with an overview of all material manifestations of ancient religious practice. The findings of the archaeological, literary, epigraphical, numismatic and iconographical research conducted on the site of the ancient city and its region, are combined. The study especially focuses on the contextual aspects of these cult objects. The difference and the relation between urban and rural manifestations of religious practice is examined and furthermore the socio-economic framework of cult, as one of the dominant components of ancient life, is elucidated. Finally the impact on religious life in Pisidia of the three acculturation-processes that took place within the period under consideration - Hellenisation, Romanisation and Christianisation - is studied within its context.

About this title


This volume is dedicated to cult in the ancient region of Pisidia. The findings of the archaeological research at the ancient city of Sagalassos are combined with the results of archaeological survey projects conducted in the region, as well as epigraphic, numismatic and iconographic studies, to create an evolutionary overview of religious practice from Alexander the Great until the rise of Christianity. Set against their indigenous background, the volume assesses the impact on local cult habits of the two acculturation processes occurring within this historical timeframe - Hellenisation and Romanisation - by examining changes and continuities in the constituent elements of religious practice, namely the pantheon of worshipped deities, the sacred space where the communication with the divine sphere took place, the cultic personnel in charge of this interaction, and the rituals involved.
