In ancient Greece, the representation of the divine and heroic world is characterised by a very sophisticated anthropomorphism. However, the suprahuman world is more than the lifelike projection of a human society into a higher sphere. In the discrepancies between socio-history and representation, some aspects of a divine specificity can be discerned. Accordingly, the respective roles of mother and wet nurse are not human types transported as such in the society of Greek gods. These types of human experience are “translated” at a higher level to suggest some aspects of the relationship that men want to establish with their gods. In return – and taking into account the discrepancies mentioned above – the narrative plots that feature such roles among the gods and heroes can reflect on their human counterparts and some current practices within Greek society. This paper addresses the role of the wet nurse respectively endorsed by the goddess Demeter taking care of a human baby and by the goddess Hera suckling the hero Heracles. [less ▲]

A close reading of Pausanias’ visit of the north side of the Athenian Acropolis suggests that the present identification of the Erechtheion, which dates back to the seventeenth century, is highly doubtful, as some very few scholars have concluded during the last three decades. The present analysis addresses the word "oikema" used by Pausanias in his description of the Acropolis, comparing this use with all the other places where it appears in the Periegesis. We may conclude that the asymetrical Ionic temple was completely devoted to Athena Polias. Therefore, the so-called Erechtheion has still to be found. [less ▲]

Dans nos sociétés sécularisées, le politique et le religieux occupent des sphères séparées et l'irruption des signes religieux dans l'espace public suscite régulièrement des débats passionnés. Le présent dossier entend replacer la question des relations entre politique et religion dans une perspective historique et critique. Quelques moments-clés de cette interaction ont été privilégiés, de l'Antiquité à nos jours : les polythéismes grec et romain où politique et religieux sont enchevêtrés ; les débuts du christianisme où l'adhésion volontaire à une profession de foi change la donne ; la période moderne, où la réflexion philosophique, d'une part, et l'émergence des États européens, d'autre part, questionnent la place de l'Église dans la cité ; la relation entre islam et politique, remise en perspective dans une comparaison avec le christianisme ; la définition du fait d'être « laïque » aujourd'hui. Un tel parcours historique permet de nourrir la réflexion sur des enjeux contemporains, en leur donnant une profondeur de champ qui a le mérite de relativiser les positions. [less ▲]

Pausanias’ ten books are a precious, and often irreplaceable, source for the study of Greek religion. In many aspects Pausanias is our sole informant; this explains why we find references to his text in so many publications that use it in a split way. The present work aims at taking Pausanias’ Periegesis as a whole in order to understand his own project and to rightly evaluate the reliability of his text as a source on three topics: the Greek sacrificial rituals, the Greek pantheon, and the mystery cults.
