Cats: The Rise and Fall of the Sacred Cat / by Donald W. Engels
has been much debate about the position of the cat in ancient Greece
and Rome. Artistic representations are sometimes ambiguous, and its
role as a mouse-catcher seems often to have been carried out by weasels.
Other evidence clearly suggests that the cat was as important to Greeks
and Romans as it is to many modern people."--BOOK JACKET. "This book
is the first comprehensive survey of the evidence about cats in Greece
and Rome, and of their functions and representations in art. Donald
Engels draws on authors from Aesop to Aristotle; on vase-painting,
inscriptions and the plastic arts; and on a thorough knowledge of
zoology of the cat. He also sets the ancient evidence in the wider
context of the Egyptian period that preceded it, as well as the views
of the Church fathers who ushered antiquity into the Middle Ages."--BOOK
