The Gift in Antiquity presents a collection of 14 original essays that apply French sociologist Marcel Mauss’s notion of gift-giving to the study of antiquity.

  • Covers such wide-ranging topics as vows in the Hebrew Bible; ancient Greek wedding gifts; Hellenistic civic practices; Latin literature; Roman and Jewish burial practices; and Jewish and Christian religious giftsOrganizes essays around theoretical concerns rather than chronologically
  • Takes an explicitly cross-cultural approach to the study of ancient history

Keywords: Ancient Culture, Marcel Mauss, gift-giving, reciprocity, religion, exchange, ceremony, offerings, giftship, barter
