The author uses metrical funerary inscriptions to reconstruct the beliefs about immortality held by ancient Greeks. In her analysis, she illuminates not only their ideas about the afterlife and thoughts about activities after death, but also their diffuse conceptions of the immortal soul. The beliefs examined in this volume illustrate the reciprocal interplay between high culture and popular religion.
