The Religio-Social Message of the Gold Tablets from Pyrgi

Wikander, Ola LU (2008) In Opuscula p.79-84
Abstract
The gold tablets from Pyrgi, studied many times for linguistic and

philological reasons, constitute a clear example of religio-social

ideology at work. They deploy their themes (the goddess, the ruler,

the sanctuary) in a way that helps create the symbolical universe of

the readers, in whose world it is inscribed that these things are part

of a greater, orderly whole. The texts are here analysed from the

points of view of ideology, power and religious tendency, as parts

of the system of religious symbolism that they seek to legitimize.

Rhetorical points are also touched upon, as well as the fundamental

question of the implied readership of the texts.
