Incubation Sanctuaries in the Greco-Roman World
In this book, Gil H. Renberg examines the ancient religious phenomenon of “incubation", the ritual of sleeping at a divinity’s sanctuary in order to obtain a prophetic or therapeutic dream. Most prominently associated with the Panhellenic healing god Asklepios, incubation was also practiced at the cult sites of numerous other divinities throughout the Greek world, but it is first known from ancient Near Eastern sources and was established in Pharaonic Egypt by the time of the Macedonian conquest; later, Christian worship came to include similar practices. Renberg’s exhaustive study represents the first attempt to collect and analyze the evidence for incubation from Sumerian to Byzantine and Merovingian times, thus making an important contribution to religious history.

[German Version] From the earliest period, healing has played a role in Christianity. The Gospels are replete with accounts of Jesus' healing, and the apostles continued this practice (Mark 6:13). The key passage for all subsequent developments is Jas 5:14–16. The elders “pray over” the sick
