The Gift in Antiquity presents a collection of 14 original essays that apply French sociologist Marcel Mauss's notion of gift-giving to the study of antiquity. * Features a collection of original essays that cover such wide-ranging topics as vows in the Hebrew Bible; ancient Greek wedding gifts; Hellenistic civic practices; Latin literature; Roman and Jewish burial practices; and Jewish and Christian religious gifts * Organizes essays around theoretical concerns rather than chronologically * Generates unique insights into gift-giving and reciprocity in antiquity * Takes an explicitly cross-cultural approach to the study of ancient history
