Summary

This volume questions the established modern scholarly categories of priests and priesthood and focusses on processes of appropriation and contestation of religious expertise in the Imperial Era. It offers a unique insight into ancient religious specialists, their dynamic interaction with established religious authorities and institutions, and their contributions to religious innovation in the ancient Mediterranean world.
