Summary
"With an approach that is both contextual and comparative, essays examine domestic and familial religious practices in Egypt, Greece, Rome, Israel, Mesopotamia, Ugarit, Emar, and Philistia. Taking in a range of religious expression, from supplication of a household's patron deities to contact with dead ancestors, Household and Family Religion in Antiquity explores a distinct and widespread ancient religions phenomenon."--BOOK JACKET
