About this product
- DescriptionThis book aims to advance our understanding of household and family religion in Mediterranean and West Asian antiquity, as opposed to state-sponsored or civic temple cults. The volume explores the new recognition that religious expression associated with household, family, and domicile is significant and must be investigated in a serious way.
