This is the first synthetic study of the use and significance of light in Greek ritual and belief of the Archaic and Classical periods - from the 7th to the 4th century BCE. Based on all available evidence, from literary texts to the representation of light in vase painting and remains of sanctuaries, it treats light both as a concept associated with a divine persona and as an artefact in the hands of the gods or during human worship.
