Can we compare the Greek and Semitic anthropological conceptions of what brings human and divine together as well as separate? Whether it is a matter of stories about origins or about ritual action, these two spheres are thought of in a constant, problematic and ambivalent, beneficial and dangerous interaction. Is the human being the fruit of a fall, a loss? Is the divine “over-human”? By comparing, one will appreciate the cultural strategies of the correlated fabric of the human and the divine in the Ancient Mediterranean region.
