Tracking Hermes, Pursuing Mercury

Format: Academic Monograph
Media: Hardback
PublisherCode: 9780198777342
Publisher: OUP Oxford

Of all the divinities of classical antiquity, the Greek Hermes (Mercury in his Roman alter ego) is the most versatile, enigmatic, complex, and ambiguous. The runt of the Olympian litter, he is the god of lies and tricks, yet is also kindly towards mankind and a bringer of luck, who in another guise also plays the role of mediator between all realms of human and divine activity, embracing heaven, earth, and the netherworld. Utilizing a multidisciplinary approach, this volume brings together twenty contributions from a wide range of fields to offer an overview of the myriad aspects of this elusive figure, tracking the god's footprints across the many domains in which he partakes.
