Summary
"In Sanctified Violence in Homeric Society, Margo Kitts explores the oath-making rituals and narratives found in the Iliad and articulates a theory of ritualized violence. Analyzing ritual features that are common to acts of religious violence worldwide, she focuses on the paradigms, core metaphors, ritual fictions, and poetic registers of Homeric oath-sacrifices."--BOOK JACKET
