No area
of Greek life was wholly untouched by religion, and a basic knowledge of
this aspect of life is essential to anyone seeking a proper understanding of
the classical world. In this engaging survey Robert Garland brings out the
unique quality of Greek religion - its practical and worldly approach to
man's relationship with the divine -
and shows how religious ritual was integral to the daily routine of both
public and private life.
