Among the Greek deities related to motherhood, Eileithyia seems to be specifically concerned with parturition. If we carefully take into account her association with Artemis and with Hera, it becomes evident that Eileithyia is involved both at the same time during labour and in the tokos, the critical moment of childbirth itself. Moreover, she is thought to safeguard the child too. Accordingly, Eileithyia’s task, which is to assist in bringing a child to the light, persists throughout the process of filiation and the later development of children. [less ▲]

This paper offers an examination of three significant familial inscriptions from the Hellenistic period. The texts are detailed cultic dossiers initiated by three individuals—Diomedon on Cos, Poseidonios in Halicarnassus, and Epikteta on Thera. Though they are often very briefly grouped together, these inscriptions are discussed here in greater textual and contextual detail. In particular, the analysis focusses on the cult personnel, which is appointed in these families, demonstrating that it remains independent from the polis, but is organised with reference to a civic framework. By setting these inscriptions in parallel, the discussion opens up productive perspectives on the evolutions of familial cults in the Hellenistic period.—The inscription of Poseidonios is reedited in an Appendix by Jan-Mathieu Carbon.

Les Grecs et les Romains sacrifiaient aux dieux des produits qui faisaient partie de leur alimentation. Une nourriture tout humaine était dès lors un médium privilégié pour entrer en communication avec eux et les honorer. S’agissait-il pour autant de « Nourrir les dieux ? » Le point d’interrogation du titre ouvre la discussion sur les mécanismes subtils de l’anthropomorphisme à l’œuvre derrière les rites sacrificiels. L’analyse de ces rites informe sur la représentation du divin qu’ils véhiculent et sur la portée symbolique de l’offrande alimentaire. Les contributions de ce volume permettent de reconstituer, par touches successives, une véritable « théologie », à savoir un discours sur le divin induit par la variété des gestes posés, des aliments choisis et de la mise en scène parfois très élaborée qui les encadre.

In ancient Greece, Moirai are divine powers related to the ‘share’ that everyone receives and mythic tales where they appear mainly associate to birth and death. As traditional spinners and weavers, such goddesses rule over everyone’s life course and over the various patterns of the life thread. Cult evidence related to the Moirai is neither numerous nor explicit about their worshippers’ expectations. Nevertheless, myths and rituals are not unrelated bodies of evidence, but specific languages, which resonate inside the mental frame of poets who narrated tales and worshippers who performed rituals. Both of these aspects of the Greek knowledge about Moirai are closely interconnected and studied as such in the present work. Powers of distribution, reward and regulation, Moirai interact with the stability warranted by Zeus’ authority on a mythical level and take also part in such a balance within human communities.

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 ▲]
