Same Amsterdam/Berlin Nolymp sing|plµral Harburg-Victor|Marie Czechna….Prolegonmenon OLYMPIAN AND CHTHONIC RITUAL.

Much the same external, quasi-political, and always cheerful attitude towards religion is taken by the ‚Old Oligarch 1: He is of course thoroughly orthodox and even pious, yet to him the main gist of religion appears to be a decorous social enjoyment. In easy aristocratic fashion he rejoices that religious ceremonials exist to provide for the less well-to-do citizens suitable amusements that they would otherwise lack. ‚As to sacrifices and sanctuaries and festivals and precincts, the People, knowing that it is impossible for each poor man individually to sacrifice and feast and have sanctuaries and a beautiful and ample city, has discovered by what means he may enjoy these privileges. The whole state accordingly at the common cost sacrifices many victims, while it is the People who feast on them and divide them among themselves by lot‘; and again 2, as part of the splendour of Athens, he notes that ’she celebrates twice as many religious holidays as any other city.‘ The very language used by this typical Athenian gentleman speaks for itself. Burnt-sacrifice (θυσία), feasting, agonistic games, stately temples are to him the essence of religion; the word sacrifice brings to his mind not renunciation but a social banquet; the temple is not to him so much the awful dwelling-place of a divinity as an integral part of a ‚beautiful and ample city.‘
