Overview

The financing and maintenance of cults, the administration of sacred places, and ways of expressing religiosity are important aspects for understanding the organisation of human communities in ancient times. Among other things, the study examines the amount of land held by sacred places, the agricultural use made of the land, possible sources of income from leasing out the land, regulations for protecting the 'sacred land', together with a possible change in religiosity when dealing with the property of the gods (7th - 4th cents. BC).
