The collection contains 222 inscriptions belonging to the category of so-called “sacred laws”, for which we have preferred the designation “ritual norms” (on this subject, see the programmatic introductory article found here: http://kernos.revues.org/2115). The texts included in the collection thus far concern the themes of sacrifice and purification. Each inscription is presented in an up-to-date published edition (occasionally, a new edition is offered), with information about its context, essential bibliography, French and English translations, and a detailed commentary. All of the files have been encoded in TEI-XML Epidoc, are fully searchable, and may be used and downloaded in Open Access. The project behind the development of the CGRN, financed by the Fonds pour la recherche scientifique (F.R.S.-FNRS, Belgium) at University of Liège, is still ongoing. Updates to the website will be made on an annual basis. Additionally, a print-on-demand edition will soon become available on the website. The printing, sale and distribution of the work will be undertaken by Éditions De Boccard. [less ▲]

The notion of reciprocity in Greek religion has been approached from many angles. One question that has not been treated concerns human discontent at gods’ gifts. Given that, in Greek literature, characters conceptualised their relationship with gods as a bond of reciprocal χάρις, did these fictive characters use the same conceptual frame in talking about frustrated expectations of divine reciprocity? When gods did not give in return what had been hoped for, was such disappointment ever constructed as a case of dysfunctional reciprocity? In this paper I argue that the answer is ‘no’, but a conscious no. Explicit disappointment in divine reciprocity occurs, but exclusively under ‘special circumstances’. Such criticism is uttered by characters who are not Greek, for example, who are portrayed as having rather strange views anyway, or who have a very special reciprocal relationship with a god based on divine parenthood of a human child. The distribution and nature of complaints shows that reproaching gods about disappointed reciprocity was consciously considered as very un-Greek. [less ▲]

In HOSIOS – A Semantic Study of Greek Piety Saskia Peels elucidates the semantics of the Ancient Greek adjective hosios and its cognates. Traditionally rendered as ‘piety’, hosios was a key notion in Classical Greek religion and reflected a core value in Athenian democracy. Since antiquity, its meaning and usage have puzzled many. This study sets out to resolve various scholarly debates on the semantics of hosios by focusing on the idea of lexical competition. It illuminates the semantic relationship between hosios and its near-synonyms eusebês and dikaios, and the connection to the notion of the ‘sacred’. Using insights from modern linguistic theory, the book also aims to improve methods for research into the lexical semantics of a dead language. [less ▲]
