This course examines the archaeological evidence for Greek cult activity and the role of material culture in understanding the ritual activities of the Greeks. Much of the course will be devoted to the development and function of Greek sanctuaries, using several major sites and festivals as focal points (Delphi, Olympia, Athenian Akropolis). We will also study smaller sites and will pay particular attention to cults of Artemis, Demeter, and Asklepios. Material considered will include architecture, votive offerings, inscriptions, sacred laws, and literary texts relevant to Greek religious practices.
