The sacrifice of captives
Darius Baronas | 2017 december 14 d. 17:44

Human sacrifice is attributable to the most forbidding
customs of ancient tribes. Among Asian and European
cultures, it permeated unevenly. The Greek myths speak of
human sacrifice but historical sources provide no data of
any actual practice of the kind. In the ancient Greece, it
was considered an old yet no longer exercisable rite
replaced by the sacrifice of animals. Although the gladiator
fights point to the fact that the Romans enjoyed terrifying
shows, neither can they be associated with the human
sacrifice as a common feature of their customs.
