Details

Despite their importance in ancient material culture and economy, textiles are often overlooked, due mainly to being very rarely preserved in the archaeological record. This study aims to introduce textiles into the study of ancient Greek religion and thereby illuminate the roles they played in the performance of Greek ritual. The study is in three parts: on the dedication of textiles in Greek sanctuaries; cult images and dress; and sacred dress codes.
