"Travel and Religion in Antiquity" considers the importance of
issues relating to travel for our understanding of religious and
cultural life among Jews, Christians, and others in the ancient
world, particularly during the Hellenistic and Roman eras. The
volume is organized around five overlapping areas where religion
and travel intersect: travel related to honouring deities,
including travel to festivals, oracles, and healing sanctuaries;
travel to communicate the efficacy of a god or the superiority of a
way of life, including the diffusion of cults or movements; travel
to explore and encounter foreign peoples or cultures, including
descriptions of these cultures in ancient ethnographic materials;
migration; and travel to engage in an occupation or vocation.
With interdisciplinary contributions that cover a range of
literary, epigraphic, and archeological materials, the volume sheds
light on the importance of movement in connection with religious
life among Greeks, Romans, Nabateans, and others, including Judeans
and followers of Jesus.
