Editorial Reviews

Review

"As the excellent introduction makes clear, there are good reasons why the study of women and religion is an exciting topic at this time." —H. Alan Shapiro, Johns Hopkins University

(H. Alan Shapiro, Johns Hopkins University)

"... a good representation of the potential of the study of women’s rituals as a medium for relocating women to the center of ancient society from their long relegation at the edge." —Randall S. Howarth
, Mercyhurst College, H-Women, H-Net, January 2009

(Randall S. Howarth, Mercyhurst College H-Women, H-Net 2009-01-00)

"[T]he scholars who contributed to this volume have done a fine job of initial recovery with careful re-interpretation of their maddeningly fragmentary primary sources." —Western Folklore, 69.1, 2010

(Western Folklore 2010-01-00)

"[This] volume spans nearly a millennium of the Greco-Roman world. It offers a snapshot of the best work in a burgeoning subfield. Especially welcome is the fresh attention paid to issues of female agency, local differentiation in cult practices, and the precise literary, material, and socio-political contexts of our evidence." —Journal of Folklore Research, August, 2011

(Journal of Folklore Research 2011-01-00)
