Trying to describe polytheism is a difficult enterprise because the whole system can be seen as a complex structure, each element of which (a deity with its proper name) is both itself a complex set of prerogatives, and at the same time, must be considered in concert with the other elements. After a brief historiographical overview, this paper focuses on the first aspect by using the notion of ‘network’ as a metaphor to refer to the complexity of the ancient Greek gods. It provides two case studies, of the Moirai and the goddess Hera. The paper concludes that polytheism can be described if one conceptualises the complexity of the gods—their unity and diversity—together at every level (Panhellenic and local, cult and myths, and so on).

Dans sa remarquable contribution à La Cuisine du sacrifice (1979), Jean-Pierre Vernant a donné une analyse du sacrifice grec qui a durablement marqué la recherche. La commensalité impliquée par l’abattage et le partage d’un animal domestique, de même que la définition du statut respectif des sacrifiants et des destinataires inhérente à ce partage sont des passages désormais obligés de toute réflexion sur l’opération sacrificielle. C’est néanmoins le propre des étapes marquantes de la recherche de susciter la réflexion et d’inviter à un approfondissement. Dès lors, cet article met l’accent sur un aspect de ladite opération quelque peu négligé par l’article de 1979 : les vecteurs de la communication entre des sphères séparées. En repartant de l’analyse du lexique sacrificiel engageant la notion grecque d’agos, on propose quelques pistes pour réévaluer la manière grecque de penser le contact avec les dieux. [less ▲]

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.

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.
