The Religio-Social Message of the Gold Tablets from Pyrgi

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The gold tablets from Pyrgi, studied many times for linguistic and
philological reasons, constitute a clear example of religio-social
ideology at work. They deploy their themes (the goddess, the ruler,
the sanctuary) in a way that helps create the symbolical universe of
the readers, in whose world it is inscribed that these things are part
of a greater, orderly whole. The texts are here analysed from the
points of view of ideology, power and religious tendency, as parts
of the system of religious symbolism that they seek to legitimize.
Rhetorical points are also touched upon, as well as the fundamental
question of the implied readership of the texts.
