Religion and Classical Warfare: Archaic and Classical Greece

Christopher Matthew, Ed. Matthew Dillon, Michael Schmitz

From sacrifices at the beginning of campaigns to thanksgivings for victory, religion and its rituals were integral elements of ancient Greek warfare. This volume forms a wide-ranging investigation into Greek beliefs about the gods’ role in war, featuring contributions by ten scholars who cover topics including sacred truces, accounts of divine epiphanies on the battlefield and the role of magic and religion in Greek military medicine.
