Chapter Summary

This section of this book Greek Religious Terminology Telete & Orgia presents a list of books along with their author names and publication dates. The book analyzes the use of two semantically related Greek religious terms: τελετή and ὄργια. The ancient texts in the book are accompanied by English translations. The author suggests that the original meaning of τελετή, being a nomen actionis of τελεĩν, to achieve, to perform, must have been: achievement, performance, in a neutral and very wide sense.

Keywords: ὄργια; τελεĩν; τελετή; Greek religious terminology; orgia; telete
