Call For Contributions: The Archaeology of Cult & Religion (‘Atiqot 116)
‘Atiqot 116 (September 2024) will focus on the Archaeology of Cult, Ritual and Religion. Cultic rituals and practices in the ancient world are of the most intriguing and captivating topics, deepening our understanding of religion through the material culture left behind by different groups in society. In historical periods, the finds may reveal additional facets to those provided by religious and ritual texts, which often represent a set of beliefs and mentalities of elite groups. The archaeology of cult and religion provides insights into the ways devotional and liturgical objects, art works and sacred spaces are connected with faith and beliefs. This volume will include final excavation reports and synthesis articles relating to cult and religion, practiced in varying locales on the household level, to the more official ceremonies conducted in specific contexts devoted to cult and religion.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to: The archaeology of temples, synagogues, churches and mosques; Artifacts related to cultic and religious practice; Religious art, iconography and furniture; The relationship between identity and religious practice; The relationship between archaeological remains and religious texts; Rural involvement in urban cultic practices; and elite versus popular beliefs and practices.
