Ritualisation is the most prominent form of religious action in Mediterranean antiquity and beyond. In order to communicate with the divine (and thus constituting its reality and shape) certain gestures, sequences of actions and words are differentiated from ordinary, pragmatic action, ritualised and even “sacralised” – by individuals as well as smaller or larger groups. Such patterns of action are repeated or taken as a blueprint for modification and innovation. They are the field for the establishment or questioning of religious authority, they are the means to temporarily or permanently mark out spaces as special. They sacralise not only spaces, but also times and natural or artificial material things, animals and people – and are drawing on such sacralised elements to determine, and elaborate on, the status of an action. Research on ancient rituals has taken many different directions. They have been seen as the continuation of pre-human patterns of action or inventions of cunning religious specialists. Fruitful analyses have inquired about the “meaning” of such rituals as described by and ascribed to different groups of participants or individual observers. Others have stressed the aesthetics and patterns and the non-verbal logic of such actions. They have been seen as the dramatisation of traditional narratives or prescribed norms, shared values and conceptions of time of place. Plausibly, they could be analysed as incorporating and affirming social hierarchies or as the results of the individual framing of situations.
