The Mother of the Gods, Athens, and the Tyranny of Asia: A Study of Sovereignty in Ancient Religion


Abstract


The wordy title of this book gets across its specific focus, the cult of a particular goddess in Athens, as well as its breadth. In order to explain the introduction of the cult, Munn presents a wide-ranging analysis of the impact of Asiatic concepts concerning humanity and the gods down to the late fifth century BC.
