The presence of religion in Greek literature has been thoroughly analysed in the most relevant historical and philological studies. Nevertheless, there exists a lack of detailed research on the tension between “religiosity and irreligiosity” which starts to become apparent particularly in Classical Athens. Therefore, this volume aims to focus on the appearance of irreligious elements in the most important literary genres of Classical Athens: drama, oratory and historiography. After a scientific update of those contributions especially relevant to our subject, we provide commentary on selected passages from the genres mentioned above to illustrate the significance of irreligious terminology in the literature of Classical Athens. The methodological principal we have used is the verification of the irreligious terms in the texts by means of inductive criteria which form the basis of our commentaries. An epilogue completes this work: the reflections of the most significant posterior authors, from Plato to Plutarch, on the “irreligious problem”.
