Prolegomena to the study of Greek religion by Jane Ellen Harrison( Book )

136 editions published between 1903 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jane Harrison examines the festivals of ancient Greek religion to identify the primitive "substratum" of ritual and its persistence in the realm of classical religious observance and literature. In Harrison's preface to this remarkable book, she writes that J.G. Frazer's work had become part and parcel of her "mental furniture" and that of others studying primitive religion. Today, those who write on ancient myth or ritual are bound to say the same about Harrison. Her essential ideas, best developed and most clearly put in the Prolegomena, have never been eclipsed

Ancient art and ritual by Jane Ellen Harrison( Book )

115 editions published between 1913 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The point of the title 'Ancient Art and Ritual' and the real gist of my argument lie perhaps in the word "and"--That is, in the intimate connection which I have tried to show exists between ritual and art. This connection has, I believe, an important bearing on questions, as, for example, the question of the place of art in our modern civilization, its relation to and its difference from religion and morality. I have taken Greek drama as a typical instance, because in it we have the clear historical case of a great art, which arose out of a very primitive and almost world-wide ritual. [author]

Introductory studies in Greek art by Jane Ellen Harrison( Book )

45 editions published between 1885 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jane Ellen Harrison (1850-1928) was a prominent classical scholar who is remembered chiefly for her influential studies of Greek religion, archaeology, literature and art. Introductory Studies in Greek Art (1885) was Harrison's second book, published after a period spent studying archaeology at the British Museum under Sir Charles Newton and writing and lecturing on the subject of Greek vase painting. In her preface to the book Harrison claims that Greek art is distinguished by what she calls 'ideality', a term she defines as a 'peculiar quality ... which adapts itself to the consciousness of successive ages ... a certain largeness and universality which outlives the individual race and persists for all time.' The book covers topics including Chaldaeo-Assyria, Phoenicia, Pheidias and the Parthenon, and the altar of Eumenes at Pergamos
