Sacred and Public Land: Modern Scholarly Responses

(p.1) 1 Introduction
Sacred and Public Land in Ancient Athens

Papazarkadas Nikolaos

Oxford University Press

This introduction has a dual purpose. First, it poses the main questions that permeate the book, including the definition of the terms ‘public’ and ‘sacred’ in relation to land tenure. Second, it surveys the relevant modern scholarship from the 19th century onwards, focusing primarily albeit not exclusively on the case of Athens. Thus the author is able to trace the development of the key concepts over the last two hundred years or so, to identify the virtues and defects of the earlier literature, and ultimately to lay out new principles for investigating his topic.

Keywords:   Public, sacred, land tenure, modern scholarshup, Athens
