Review of the hardback: '… gives a vivid picture of the sacred topography of Aricia …' BMCR

Review of the hardback: 'Green's is a magisterial study of all surviving evidence, well worth reading not only for scholars of religion, but for anyone with an interest in Roman cultural history. Her thorough coverage implicitly situates this rich material of myth and ritual in an anthropological perspective …' International Journal of the Classical Tradition

Présentation de l'éditeur

The sanctuary dedicated to Diana at Aricia flourished from the Bronze age to the second century CE. From its archaic beginnings in the wooded crater beside the lake known as the 'mirror of Dianea' it grew into a grand Hellenistic-style complex that attracted crowds of pilgrims and the sick. Diana was also believed to confer power on leaders. This 2007 book examines the history of Diana's cult and healing sanctuary, which remained a significant and wealthy religious center for more than a thousand years. It sheds light on Diana herself, on the use of rational as well as ritual healing in the sanctuary, on the subtle distinctions between Latin religious sensibility and the more austere Roman practice, and on the interpenetration of cult and politics in Latin and Roman history.

This book is an insightful, scholarly look at the cult of Diana at Aricia. Green re-examines written Roman evidence and puts forth logical and well-thought-out theories on how the cult of Diana functioned for its many cross-class devotees - from the history of the rex nemorensis, to its Augustan political implications, its hunting rituals and initiatory rites, the care of women during pregnancy and the healing of humans and animals. A fresh and inspiring look at a Goddess who was central in the lives of the ancient Latins and Romans. For me author and scholar Green brought Diana alive in ways other scholarly books on Roman religion fail to do. Roman Religion and the Cult of Diana at Aricia demonstrates that scholars can both be interested in their subject as well as critically and successfully analize evidence. Immensely readable and accessible. Thank you C.M.C. Green for writing this book!

This was the most enjoyable history book I've read in a long time. I liked it so much that I bought it after I had read University of Washington's copy of it.

Green takes an obscure topic in Latin history and uses it to develop a deeper understanding of the development of Roman culture in general. The worship of Diana was one of the most powerful aspects of Roman and Latin religion for hundreds of years. But I can't recall ever seeing such a throrough descirption of the site, the cult, and its effects anywhere else.

Green conducts an incredibly thorough analysis of hundreds of Latin texts searching for references applicable to Diana's sanctuary and the "rex nemorensis." Along the way he illuminates some confusiong elements of the stories of two legendary kings of early Rome, Numa and Servius Tullius. Most surprisingly of all, Green sheds important light on how Octavian was able to turn the tables on his detractors by using his non-Roman origins in Aricia to his advantage. The exposition on Grattius' Cynegetica was all new to me and very compelling in bolstering his interpretations of the Diana myth and her rituals at Aricia.

I felt the very end of the book may have been slightly weaker than the first eight chapters. Much of the speculation about the healing rituals that might have been performed at Aricia don't really have textual support. So, in Chapter 10 especially, Green makes some novel assertions about the use of dough images in the healing rituals but they are really educated guesses. Also, he leaps from healing recommendations for dogs found in the Cynegetica tohuman healing and suggests with little support that the same remedies were applied to people. He's on much stronger footing when discussing the dedications of votary objects at the temple site and the references in Ovid, Propertius, Horace and others to possible ritual healing issues. Even so, Green's "guesses" are sound ideas for what MIGHT have happened and create a solid image of the cult at Aricia.
