about this item

This is the first volume to bring together the fields of ancient religions, sensory studies and movement studies, with the objective of introducing sensory studies as a methodological approach to religion. The volume’s main theme is human movement through physical space as it pertains to religious experience in the ancient world. Each chapter discusses a more specific treatment of this theme, such as pilgrimage towards a sacred place or some physicalised aspect of ancient ritual such as the aural and olfactory environment of festivals, funerals and weddings, or the relationship between Roman city walls and religious movement.

Offering a substantial and innovative contribution to the burgeoning fields of sensory and spatial experience in the ancient world this volume will encourage further dialogue between otherwise disparate fields of research.
