Female Bodies in Sacred Spaces: Re-evaluating Women’s Agency in the Greek World.

Ziel

The project aims at re-evaluating women’s agency in the Greek sacred world through the application of an innovative and interdisciplinary approach encompassing cognitive archaeology. The role of women in Ancient Greece has been either overlooked or described as powerless, controlled and excluded by scholars (Hogbin, 1970; Spain, 1992). This research overturns this narrative by revealing evidence of powerful female agency in the Ancient Greek sacred space through a cognitive reading of the historical context and ancient mind which will also explain the reasons why women were highly involved and how their agency was fundamental for successful rituals.
