Project:
Cult and Society in Pre-Classical Athens 01-03-2011 tot 01-09-2013
Algemene projectbeschrijving

Democracy is arguably Classical Athens’ most important contribution to modern political thinking. The great reforms of the Athenian statesmen Solon (594/3 BCE) and Cleisthenes (508/7 BCE) inspired intellectuals such as Montesquieu, John Adams and George Grote to develop revolutionary ideas leading to the emergence of constitutional democracies in Western Europe and North America. The historical circumstances resulting in the invention of democracy are therefore inextricably connected with the way we think about our government today. 

The contemporary relevance of this subject has also, paradoxically, harmed the way in which the model has been studied. The preoccupation of early scholarship with the legal implementation of “the rule of the many” in addition to contemporary orthodoxies about the separation of church and state may be held responsible for what little attention has been paid to the cultural circumstances in which democracy was created. It has focused on constitutional matters documented by ancient political historians (Herodotus, Thucydides) and philosophers (Plato Aristotle) studying institutional effectiveness. Unsurprisingly, this biased approach has led to a technical and legalistic (profane) discussion of the democratic reforms at the expense of the cultural circumstances (notably religion) that led to these measures. This “constitutional school” is still prevalent among ancient Greek historians to this day (cf. Hansen, 2005; Raaflaub, 2007). 

This project aims at redressing the imbalance between “sacred” and “profane”. The emergence and development of the early Athenian polis leading up to the reforms of Cleisthenes (ca. 1100-500 BCE) will be studied from an integrated archaeological, historical and anthropological point of view and analyzed through the development of and interaction between sanctuaries and the social networks they represent.

Rol: Uitvoerder
Individuele projectbeschrijving

Representing the foremost socio-political and cultural institutions of this period, it is proposed to analyse sanctuaries and other cult sites in terms of recent advances in the fields of cultural anthropology (Dietler and Hayden, 2001) and Network Theory (e.g. Wasserman and Faust, 1994; Weinberg 2001; Snooks 2008), thus defining the social structure of early Athens in terms of the social hierarchies within and between subgroups, as well as the relationships between these groups and the whole system, viz. the Athenian polis.

The objectives of the proposed project can be characterized as two interconnecting planes. The first aim is to collect all available data in a digital database, allowing cross-referencing in a number of relevant terms, such as votive offerings, architecture, location, known deity, literary references etc. Since it is specifically intended to draw from the expertise and factual knowhow of an international scholarly audience, this database will be open-access and online in order to invoke debate on specific .

At the micro level of subgroup behaviourism, the archaeological data will be analyzed within the anthropological framework laid out by Michael Dietler and Brian Hayden, who have shown and documented (2001) how ritualized feasting functions at the core of pre-industrialized societies, both past and present. The ritualization of power relations at the diner table calls attention to the general economy of subsistence by defining patron-client relationships and accentuating gender, age and social differences through preferenced treatment during the feast. Since ancient Greek cultic behaviour may essentially be analyzed in similar terms, revolving around the animal sacrifice and ensuing communal consumption of the meat, Dietler and Hayden’s model will enable a better understanding of the various types of power relations at play within relatively small communities.

At a more general, systemic level the analysis will focus on the interconnections between the various ritual nodes showing up in the archaeological record. The various types of networks (social, economic, religious) emerging from analysis of the data collected in the digital database will be studied in terms of Network Theory (e.g. Wasserman and Faust, 1994). While this approach will at first sight be less preoccupied with the classical historical questions such as outlined before, it will ultimately also relate these issues as well by carefully reconstructing the social framework of the Athenian state. A central goal in this process will be to show how a gradual process of religious unification, centered on the Athenian Acropolis and spanning most of the Archaic period, ultimately led to the great constitutional reforms of Cleisthenes in 508/7 BCE and the establishment of democracy by clustering peripheral cults to the main cult of Athena.


The first stage of this project will focus on Athens and Attica collecting the relevant archaeological sites into the Ancient Greek Cult Platform (see below), an open-access, online and amply cross-referenced inventory of Greek cultic remains. The results from this project will be published in “The Cults of Attica” (vols. I and II) at BAR. 

The second stage will be devoted to the analysis of the remains from a social vantage point. In terms of the larger scope of Network Theory, the Attic cult sites will be analyzed as social nodes to be understood as organic elements functioning within a larger socio-political framework (i.e. the early Athenian polis). On the micro-level recent theoretical advances in cultural anthropology (Wiessler, 1996; Dietler and Hayden, 2001) will be applied to determine the internal social dynamics of cult sites through the diacritical effects of feasting.

Project:
Phrontis - Database of Ancient Greek Cults 01-03-2011 tot 01-09-2013
Algemene projectbeschrijving

The Database of Ancient Greek Cults (DAGC) is part of a larger research initiative aimed at the analysis of cult activity and state formation in Greece.The project has five main aims:



  1. The collection of a large body of (mainly archaeological) data from Greek cult sites (ca. 1000-300 BCE).

  2. Making the database accessible to the public through an intuitive, user-friendly interface (Phrontis).

  3. The multiplying effect of factual information contributed by registered users of the Phrontis website. This is not a wiki-style information resource, but a meticulously filtered workflow, screened by skilled professionals.

  4. The generation of in depth discussion on several forums accessible through the Phrontis website.

  5. Advancing the collaboration of leading archaeologists and historians with a specific expertise in the study of ancient Greek cults.

During the first stage the project’s research coordinator, dr. Floris van den Eijnde, and IT manager, Eddie van Dijk, will develop a pilot intended to provide a fully featured simulation of what the final platform will look like, including an online searchable database of a limited number of cults. This pilot will be used to generate the funding necessary to build the platform (see above).


The second stage will focus on Athens and Attica, as areas of special interest to the research coordinator. Its aim will be to collect the relevant archaeological sites within the Database of Ancient Greek Cults. The DAGC will be an open-access, online and amply cross-referenced inventory of Greek cultic remains. The results from this project will be published in “The Cults of Attica” (vols. I and II) at BAR. 


During a third stage, the method described above will be rolled out in other parts of Ancient Greece. Specialists of cultic remains in other parts of Greece will be invited to participate as regional coordinators, determining and filtering what information will or will not be incorporated in the main database.

Rol: Uitvoerder
Individuele projectbeschrijving

The Phrontis Ancient Greek Cult Platform has close affinities with several international institutes with unique expertise in the collection, digitization, analysis and publishing of large amounts of archaeological material.



  1. University of Leicester. The cooperation with the University of Leicester has been sought on the basis of the advanced partnership between the humanities and computer sciences in the "Tracing Networks" project at Leicester University led by professor Lin Foxhall. The support of professor Foxhall’s team will be invaluable in the creation of a fully digitized database of all Attic cult remains as well as in the analysis of relational patterns within the dataset.

  2. To this same end a partnership has been formed with the American School of Classical Studies at Athens and the American Excavations at the Athenian Agora where a large-scale open-access digitalization project has been underway since 1997 under the supervision of Professor John McK. Camp II and Bruce Hartzler (www.agathe.gr).

Project:
Citizenship in Classical Athens 01-09-2004 tot 01-09-2009
Algemene projectbeschrijving
Citizenship is a crucial concept in the history of ancient Greece and of classical Athens in particular. The project offers a new approach to citizenship in classical Athens, attributing a formative role to religion within the political domain leading to a clarification of female citizenship and a reassessment of the political role of resident immigrants (metics). The project aims at founding a new perception of the political and social structures of classical Athens and of ancient Greece, and at contributing to comparative historical and modern debates on citizenship.
In the present project Athenian citizenship is analyzed as a three-level structure, the connections between the levels showing varying degrees of stringency:
1. qualification of membership of the group 'citizens'; this depended on descent, exceptions being not infrequent but emphatically exceptions. Citizenship was confirmed and reinstated in religious activities.
2. activities required in order to put membership into practice. Athens created a vast number of religious activities in which only citizens participated, some in which only metics participated and some for both groups (some included slaves). The same pattern of exclusion, inclusion and mixed combinations applies to participation by men and women.
3. rights and duties following the status acquired by level 1) and 2), comprising of the right to fulfill certain functions. These included religious functions, notably priesthoods, for both men and women, and functions (many, but not all of them secular) in the military and political/administrative domain for men only. Some metics became involved in a number of these functions.
