Despite the number of introductions to Greek religion that have appeared in the recent past, this companion edited by Daniel Ogden offers a fresh contribution to the subject. It covers a wide spectrum of topics, but the individual essays do not attempt to provide a summary or survey of the topic involved, but rather focus on questions regarding the topic. It also does not aim at a comprehensive coverage of Greek religion, but allows the individual contributors to select the issues they consider important in the current scholarly debate. In some essays one could have wished for more information about the topic, but on the whole this approach succeeds in stimulating further interest in the subject.
