Alan H. Sommerstein, "Oath and State in Ancient Greece"
English | 2012 | ISBN: 3110284383 | PDF | pages: 387 | 2,9 mb
The oath was an institution of fundamental importance across a wide range of social interactions throughout the ancient Greek world, making a crucial contribution to social stability and harmony; yet there has been no comprehensive, dedicated scholarly study of the subject for over a century. This volume of a two-volume study explores how oaths functioned in the working of the Greek city-state (polis) and in relations between different states as well as between Greeks and non-Greeks.
