Greek and Roman Religions
CCIV 220
Fall 2006
Section: 01  

How did an ancient Greek or Roman relate to the world of the divine, and what forms did this relationship take? This course will address questions such as these, and provide an introduction to the polytheistic religions of the Greeks and Romans, with a focus on both public and personal beliefs and practices. On the public side, gods, myths, heroes, sacred places, calendars and festivals, priests and priestesses, divination, and sacrifice will be studied, while elements of personal religion will cover healing and mystery cults, such as Isis and Mithras.
