Project overview

The MAP project captures divine epithets as an interface between religious systems and their contextual appropriation by men. By electing two fields of inquiry, the Greek world and the Western Semitic world, in the long term that goes from the emergence of Greek cities to the end of the Roman Empire, MAP intends, for the first time, to embrace all the divine epithets as a language giving access to the cartography of the divine, to its modes of representation and declension, as well as to the communication strategies between men and gods.
