Personal Religion Among the Greeks Hardback
The author discerns two distinct currents of personal religion, which he illustrates through striking instances of faith on the part of individual Greeks: popular piety, or the indirect approach to God through saints, idols, and images as intermediaries; and reflective piety, which seeks direct and immediate union with God himself.
