Bibliography
Index Locorum
This is a book about the representation of gods (both as characters and as a Subject for discourse) in Attic tragedy, and more specifically in two tragedies by Euripides: Heracles and Hippolytus. Its goal is to establish a (necessarily partial) framework for the reading of Greek tragedy and for the analysis of the various ways in which the gods of the Greek religion appear in tragic drama, and to apply it to the aforementioned plays. Our ultimate goal is to explore the relationship between Attic tragedy and Greek religious life.
