Title: Ancient Greek Religion: A Sourcebook. Blackwell Sourcebooks in Ancient History
Author(s): Emily Kearns
Publisher: Malden, MA/Oxford/Chichester:  Wiley-Blackwell
Publication Date: 2009
ISBN: 1405149280
ISBN-13:
Current Price and More Info from Amazon

From the Bryn Mawr Classic Review:
With this book, Emily Kearns aims to provide an up-to-date collection of texts for the study of ancient Greek religion. The previous sourcebook on the subject was published by Rice and Stambaugh, in 1979.1 Therefore, the need for a successor to this work was great, as in thirty years, our knowledge of ancient Greek religion has considerably expanded, both because the documentation has increased thanks to the contribution of epigraphic evidence and because the interpretation of a number of old texts has changed (p. 1). Coincidentally, almost simultaneously another sourcebook concerning Greek religion was published by Valerie M. Warrior in 2009.2

Read the full review at the Bryn Mawr Classic Review web site.

Additional Description:
“Kearn's superb sourcebook makes it possible, for the first time, for students in a convenient, well-informed, and systematic way to engage directly with over 200 primary texts central to the study of Greek religion.”
Jon D. Mikalson, University of Virginia

“This is much more than the long-overdue, up-to-date sourcebook on Greek religion; researchers too will find the innovative choice of texts, documents and images and the thoughtful commentary extremely rewarding.”
Barbara Kowalzig, Royal Holloway, University of London

none

This looks like it would be nice to have once used copies are available at a good price.

::nods::  It looks like just the sort of thing that would be useful to me--but even my university library, which normally is really good at providing my religious-scholarly-reading needs, doesn't appear to have a copy.  Sad  I'll have to see what can be done with ILL, maybe, or just be patient I guess.  I might be able to swing the $26 for Amazon's cheapest used copies, especially after the holidays have passed, but I'm wary of doing that without having read it first...
