about this item

This book provides a comprehensive and systematic account of erinys in ancient Greek literature and cult. The author shows that the different usages and appearances of erinys, including non-personal and personal, singular and plural, correspond to each other as expressions of an extended concept of the curse. This concept, which played an essential role in religion and society, also underlies the cults of the Semnai theai and Eumenides.
