This volume explores the role of the visual in helping to create a vision of the gods and how commitment to the visibility of the divine affected ancient religious practices, rituals, and beliefs. The essays deploy a wide range of disciplines that include archaeology, iconology, cultural studies, and the cognitive sciences to consider the visual aspects of ancient religion from a variety of angles.
