Readers of Greek literary, historical, oratorical, ritual and even medical texts, are all liable to encounter ideas of pollution. This text seeks to describe and analyze this wide-ranging and complex concept.
Most of the commonly read Greek texts address "pollution." The pollution theme appears in tragedies, historical texts, and political oratory. Purity is a constant concern in ritual texts, and Greeks underwent many small purifications in their everyday lives. Certain archaic religious movements even made "purification" the path to felicity in the afterlife. First published in 1983, Miasma is the first work in English to treat this theme in detail.
