Bodily display and Epigraphical Confession at the Sanctuary of Apollo Lairbenos: An examination of emotional responses

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Approximately 172 ‘confession inscriptions’ are now known. The rural sanctuary of Apollo Lairbenos has made a signi cant contribution to this classi cation. The natural setting in relation to the temple architecture, the admission memorialized in stone and on public display, the performative function of writing, and the catechetical witness to the power of the gods in human transactions have all begun to gain heuristic attention in the interpretation of these inscriptions. This paper focuses on one recently published inscription with relief from the sanctuary of Apollo Lairbenos. It is a paper in two parts, the rst suggesting some new readings and interpretation for the focus stone and then, in the second part, returning the stone to the context of the sanctuary in order to test for the emotional responses that attach to it.
