Miasma: Pollution and Purification in Early Greek Religion

Synopsis

Most of the commonly read Greek texts address "pollution." The pollution theme appears in tragedies, historical texts, and political oratory. Purity is a constant concern in ritual texts, and Greeks underwent many small purifications in their everyday lives. Certain archaic religiousmovements even made "purification" the path to felicity in the afterlife. First published in 1983, Miasma is the first work in English to treat this theme in detail.
