The Reception of Ancient Greek Religion in Contemporary Greece

My research is a fieldwork based study of the reception of ancient Greek religion in contemporary Greece. I look at the role of rituals and the selection of texts, ideas about authenticity and how the past is negotiated through practices in the present. My work looks at renewal rites and processions and addresses the role of the interplay between factors such as nationalism, environmentalism, folklore, romanticism and Orthodox Christianity in the construction of new Pagan rituals.
