Book: Theorizing Religion in Antiquity

Chapter: 19. Gender

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.27978


Although a modern term, ‘gender’ is usually either overlooked or not adequately discussed in studies dealing with ancient religions. Salvo offers an introduction to the issue, by taking ancient Athens as a core example, and discusses how scholars dealing with ancient religions can utilise the expanding field of gender studies in their own works.
