Dedications as Aggressions
2022 (English)Other (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Votive offerings and other dedications to gods were normally gifts that fulfilled vows or expressed gratitude. But human ingenuity knows no bounds, especially not in conflicts. We can therefore find several examples of ritual innovation among Jews, Christians, Greeks and Romans in Roman antiquity, where dedications of people and property to the gods functioned as aggressions to involve the gods in ongoing interpersonal conflicts.
