Practising Religion on the Interface : religion and society in Karia (7th – 1st centuries BC)
The study of religion in Karia, in south western Anatolia, is inextricably linked with the wider social dynamics of the region ; its cultural and religious character was shaped by sustained interaction with both east and west. In this project I research the cultural hybridization of Karia, as reflected in the local cults and mythologies of the region. Rather than drawing a division between cultural forces that are labelled as ‘Karian’ or ‘Greek’, I will work outwards from the premise of assimilation and interchange between different cultural forces in the region in order to develop an analytical framework with which to study Karian religion
