Description

This volume presents a selection of prayer chosen by over 40 different historians, all specialists in their respective areas of Graeco-Roman literature. Each selection includes an introductory essay, followed by an English translation of the prayer, accompanied by critical notes and biography. In this way the reader is able to gain an insight into the variety of subjects and styles involved in people's communications with their gods in antiquity. The volume should be a key text for students engaged in courses which explore the period's history and theologies. The volume should also be of value to the general reader interested in the history of this period, and anyone interested in the forms of prayer.
