Ritualistic Formulae In Greek Dramatic Texts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Ritualistic formulae and acts pervade the political, legal, societal and religious life of the ancient world. In many instances there are striking similarities between the formulae of the Greco-Roman world and those of the Near East. Often illumination exists from one to the other. Here I wish to notice a few passages in Greek drama where I think such illumination is possible.
