By Josine Blok

What did citizenship quite suggest in classical Athens? it really is conventionally understood as characterized by way of maintaining political workplace. when you consider that simply males may well accomplish that, purely they have been thought of to be voters, and the neighborhood (polis) has seemed essentially because the scene of men's political activities. despite the fact that, Athenian legislations outlined voters now not through political place of work, yet through descent. faith used to be critical to the polis and during this area, girls performed admired public roles. either women and men have been referred to as 'citizens'. On a brand new analyzing of the proof, Josine Blok argues that for the Athenians, their polis used to be based on a permanent bond with the gods. legislation anchored the polis' commitments to people and gods during this bond, transmitted over the years to female and male Athenians as equivalent heirs. All public places of work, in a number of methods and as befitting gender and age, served either the human group and the divine powers maintaining Athens.
