Corrington examines the image of the savior and the experience of salvation, two concepts that are inextricably entwined. The author asserts that Christianity set aside female images of salvation by emphasizing the maleness of Jesus. She draws on solid knowledge of Jewish and classical Greek sources to show that the image of God could be seen as both male and female.

*Winner of the AFS Elli Köngäs-Maranda Prize 2016* Multidisciplinary or post-disciplinary research is what is needed when dealing with such complex subjects as ritual behaviour. This research, therefore, combines ethnography with historical sources to examine the relationship between modern Greek death rituals and ancient written and visual sources on the subject of death and gender. The central theme of this work is women’s role in connection with the cult of the dead in ancient and modern Greece. The research is based on studies in ancient history combined with the author’s fieldwork and anthropological analysis of today’s Mediterranean societies. Since death rituals have a focal and lasting importance, and reflect the gender relations within a society, the institutions surrounding death may function as a critical vantage point from which to view society. The comparison is based on certain religious festivals that are dedicated to deceased persons and on other death rituals. Using laments, burials and the ensuing memorial rituals, the relationship between the cult dedicated to deceased mediators in both ancient and modern society is analysed. The research shows how the official ideological rituals are influenced by the domestic rituals people perform for their own dead, and vice versa, that the modern domestic rituals simultaneously reflect the public performances. As this cult has many parallels with the ancient official cult, the following questions are central: Can an analysis of modern public and domestic rituals in combination with ancient sources tell the reader more about the ancient death cult as a whole? What does such an analysis suggest about the relationship between the domestic death cult and the official? Since the practical performance of the domestic rituals was – and still remains – in the hands of women, it is crucial to discover the extent of their influence to elucidate the real power relations between women and men. This research represents a new contribution to earlier presentations of the Greek “reality”, but mainly from the female perspective, which is highly significant since men produced most of the ancient sources. This means that the principal objective for this endeavour is to question the ways in which history has been written through the ages, to supplement the male with a female perspective, perhaps complementing an Olympian Zeus with a Chthonic Mother Earth. The research brings both ancient and modern worlds into mutual illumination; its relevance therefore transcends the Greek context both in time and space.

The prevalence of salvation language in the Pastoral Epistles has been often commented on but rarely investigated. This careful study discovers a vital paraenetic role for salvation in all three letters, but finds distinctive soteriological emphases in each, challenging assumptions about the Pastoral Epistles as a corpus. Fresh exegetical insights cast light on the cross-cultural translation of early Christian ideas of salvation.

Traduction, suivie de commentaires, de quatre-vingt-six documents épigraphiques, relatifs à la vie religieuse dans les cités grecques du monde égéen entre les Ve et IIIe siècles avant J-C. Ces documents s'adressent principalement aux étudiants préparant les concours de l'enseignement et qui, par méconnaissance des langues anciennes, n'ont généralement plus accès à ce type de sources. Les textes ont été, pour la plupart, empruntés à des recueils de "lois sacrées", selon l'appellation que leur donne la tradition savante. Les sujets abordés portent sur les milieux de la vie religieuse et sur les cultes.
