Description
Widely practiced in ancient times during such major life events as initiations, puberty, marriage, and burial, sacred dances frequently served as emotional outlets for the performers. Relying primarily on literature, inscriptions, and ornamental artwork, this 1923 study examines, among other topics, Old Testament terms for "dancing" and forms of musical accompaniment in the time of the Hebrews; dances honoring supernatural powers performed by the Hittites, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans; and dances of exaltation and victory.
