Animal Kingdom of Heaven
Anthropozoological Aspects in the Late Antique World
Ed. by Schaaf, Ingo
Aims and Scope
The essays collected in this volume apply an interdisciplinary approach to explore aspects of the relationship between animal and human in late antiquity. With a focus on ways that anthropozoological connections were defined in the emergent Christian religious discourse of the epoch, the authors contribute to our understanding a thematic area largely neglected in previous research.
