Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book titled Votives, Places and Rituals in Etruscan Religion that offers a contribution to the continued study of Etruscan culture and gathers new material, interpretations and approaches to the less emphasized areas of Etruscan religion. While the papers brought together in the book are formally organized into the three categories of votives, places, and rituals, in actuality these topics represent three sides of a larger phenomenon and indeed the interests of many of the papers overlap. The first section deals with a range of different votive objects. The second section concerns the various places associated with Etruscan religious practices. The last section probes the limits of what we can reconstruct when it comes to ritual in Etruscan religion. These contributions examine different types of sources for ritual behavior with their inherent biases.
