The Mycenaean Linear B tablets include numerous references to  religion, such as details of offerings, banqueting foodstuffs or  land-tenure relating to cult personnel. While contributing  significantly to our understanding of early Greek religion, the  documents are exclusively economic and administrative records and  the limitations of such sources have long been recognised. Few  attempts have been made, however, to analyse the purely economic  information about religion we do have in Linear B. Such analysis  is essential to understanding the place of religion in Mycenaean  palace society. This book asks a simple but important question: What proportion  of the resources available to the palaces was directed towards  support for religion?
