Cult and Koinon in Hellenistic Thessaly examines the territorial expansion of the Thessalian League ca. 196-27 BCE and the development of the state religion of the League. Individual chapters trace the adoption of a common Thessalian calendar by new members of the League, the establishment of new regional festivals, the elaboration or reorganization of older cults, and League participation in a network of international festivals; cult could equally well enact alternatives to this political arrangement, however, and older religious traditions continued to be maintained both within new League territories and especially at Delphi. The result is a fresh portrait of the politics of cult on the Greek mainland in the later Hellenistic period.Table of ContentsTitleDedicationAcknowledgmentsContentsIntroductionChapter One: Thessalian HistoriesChapter Two: The Federal SanctuariesChapter Three: The Thessalian CalendarsChapter Four: International ReligionConclusionEpigraphic AppendixBibliography
