A bibliography of ancient Greek divination in context

 

This bibliography focuses on the Greek world, but also contains titles related to Roman, African and Near Eastern divination that I deem of interest to those studying divination in the Greek world – and omits those relating to Late Antiquity and Early Christianity. The reason for this focus is that the bibliography first started its existence as part of the research for my book Worlds full of signs: ancient Greek divination in context (Leiden: Brill 2013).

Naturally, this is work-in-progress and I appreciate any help correcting and/or expanding the bibliography. It certainly does not claim to be exhaustive or free of errors, nor does it cover every language (English, French, Dutch and German are represented) . Those who have bibliographies of divination that I can add to this one (of course with due reference) please contact me at k.beerden@hum.leidenuniv.nl .

*****

The purpose of having this bibliography online is to stimulate teaching as well as research into ancient divination – it is meant for both students and scholars of ancient divination. If you are using it (e.g., for teaching purposes), please refer to this website (http://www.kimbeerden.nl)
