Students of historic Athenian politics, governance, and faith have lengthy stumbled over the wealthy facts of inscriptions and literary texts that rfile the Athenians’ stewardship of the wealth of the gods. Likewise, Athens was once renowned for devoting public strength and cash to all concerns of formality, starting from the construction of temples to significant spiritual sacrifices. but, missing any sufficient account of ways the Athenians equipped that dedication, less the way it arose and constructed, historical historians and philologists alike have worked with just a paltry realizing of what used to be a significant main issue to the Athenians themselves. That deficit of information, in flip, has limited and decreased our clutch of different crucial questions surrounding Athenian society and its background, corresponding to the character of political lifestyles in archaic Athens, and the forces underlying Athens’ imperial finances.

Hallowed Stewards heavily examines these magistracies that have been important to Athenian spiritual efforts, and that are most sensible defined as “sacred treasurers.” Given the wide yet fragmentary proof on hand to us, which is composed typically of inscriptions yet comprises such texts because the ps.-Aristotelian Constitution of the Athenians, no catalog-like method of those places of work might thoroughly surround their info, less their wider value. via situating the sacred treasurers inside of a broader spiritual and historic framework, Hallowed Stewards not just presents an incisive portrait of the treasurers themselves but additionally elucidates how sacred estate and public finance alike constructed in historical Athens.
