The contributors to Light and Darkness in Ancient Greek Myth and Religion consider its function on both the individual and social level as manifested in modes of thought and behaviour and expressed in language, beliefs, ritual, and iconography. Light and darkness played an important role in ancient Greek myth and religion beyond the division of time. The book is divided into five sections: cult, eye sight/insight, being and beyond, appearance and concealment, and colour semantics. The reader will find a plethora of knowledge in each subdivision, from thorough explanations of the interactions between lexical categories that signify darkness and light and the impact of blindness on philosophical issues to the characteristics of cultic light.
