The study of magic in the Greco-Roman world is a branch of the disciplines of classics, ancient history and religious studies.

The study of magic in the Greco-Roman world is a branch of the disciplines of classics, ancient history and religious studies. In classical antiquity, including the Hellenistic world of ancient Greece and ancient Rome, historians and archaeologists view the public and private rituals associated with religion as part of everyday life. Examples of this phenomenon are found in the various state and cult temples, Jewish synagogues, and churches.

This volume presents the outcome of the workshop 'Cultural Messages in the Graeco-Roman World', which marked the 80th anniversary of BABESCH. It takes as its premise that looking at modes to analyse cultural messages in the classical world is a valuable approach to the study of antiquity. The main purpose of the volume is therefore to explore ways in which (and the extent towards which) one can answer substantial questions about Greek and Roman culture through analysing material sources. To this end, the volume includes papers by archaeologists and ancient historians with an interest in larger methodological and theoretical questions. They all explore one of two broader themes: funerary culture and domestic culture. Within the context of those two themes, papers question how one can make statements about ancient societies based upon a specific set of material finds. The focus of the individual papers ranges from the early Greek until the later Roman period, evenly distributed among the two themes. This broad chronological range indicates the wide framework of the volume. The result is a highly interesting mixture of different kinds of studies, all emphasising the critical importance of context - local, geographical, and in terms of materiality - in any sustainable analysis of ancient cultural messages.
