Chapter Summary

The purpose of this chapter is to work toward an approach for the problem of identifying domestic cult. In order to do this, it first surveys the problem of identifying cultic contexts more generally, and specifically the identification of large-scale cultic buildings such as temples. There are two reasons for this approach. First, most of the attention given to the problem of cult identification has focused on the latter issue. Second, while the problems of identifying temples and domestic cult contexts are ultimately distinct, they involve some of the same basic issues. Thus, the general problem of identifying cultic contexts provides an appropriate starting point.

Keywords: domestic cult context; Philistia
