With 40 illustrations. This is a short survey of Greek religious practice and beliefs. It gives a fascinating look at the very earthy popular side of Greek religion, with its festivals, initiations, secret societies, oracles, and a practical but very superstitious belief system. The author also discusses how some of these beliefs and festivals, under the guise of Christianity, have persisted to this day.
