Psyche: The Cult of Souls and Belief in Immortality among the Greeks. Two Volumes in One
2019 Reprint of 1925 Paul, Trench, Trubner Edition. Two Volumes Bound into one. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition software. “This book offers an account of the opinions held by the Greeks about the life of the human soul after death and is thus intended as a contribution to the history of Greek religion. Such an undertaking has in a special measure to contend with the difficulties that face any inquiry into the religious life and thought of the Greeks. Greek religion was a natural growth, not a special foundation, and the ideas and feelings which gave it its inward tone and outward shape never received abstract formulation. It expressed itself in religious performances alone: it had no sacred books from which we might determine the inward meaning and interconnexion of the ideas with which the Greeks approached the gods created by their faith.”—From the introduction. Psyche remains a standard reference work for Greek cult practices and beliefs related to the soul. Translated from the eighth edition by W.B. Hillis.
