Necromancy was an important feature of the Greek mystery religions. We have scant knowlege of the actual rituals, but the objective was surely to seek information from the dead.
A main man here is the eminent classical scholar Arthur Woolgar Verrall. He and his wife were keen necromancers. He claimed he could clarify obscurities in Euripides' because he was in touch with the maestro himself.
[*]Euripides has just told me that ἀλλά in IA 1239 is an expletive meaning mais oui. Iphigenia's sole joy will be the memory of her father's smile.
[*]OR was it Verrall? Anyway, didn't sound like his wife.
That is hilarious. TODAY, 2017 this guy would be mainstream on the west coast, San Francisco or Seattle. Check out the two award winning novels the new millenial author Meg Elison from San Francisco published by 47North Seattle. This is NOT a recomendation.
