Artemis and the Ritual Process

This is the second volume in the series 'Life, Death & Artemis'. In this volume the myriad practices of Artemis' worship are placed within the framework of religion as proposed by Roy Rapport, religious anthropologist. In so doing this enables parallels to be drawn with Artemis as the representation of life, a continuation of the theme found in the ancient art and artefacts (volume 1). More

About Mary G. Galvin PhD

Mary has worked in the field of healthcare technology over the last ten years. She has implemented automated anaesthetic record keeping systems across 43 Queensland hospitals to provide a solution that supports improved clinical decision-making and patient outcomes in the perioperative setting. Mary has delivered patient queuing and wait management systems for Gold Coast outpatient clinics and has integrated electronic cardiotocography and intrapartum recording into the maternity section of the Gold Coast University Hospital.
Prior to this, she worked for more than 20 years across a range of industries including defence, telecommunications, banking and healthcare in both management and consulting roles. Her project experiences range from the highly-technical (such as developing sonar and radio communications for defence) to those that transform businesses (for example, re-engineering company processes to handle a five times increase in the customer base).
This wealth of experience has enabled her to develop advanced skills, not only in project and program management, but also business process re-engineering and organisational change management. Mary has also led, managed and mentored many multi-disciplinary project teams.
This flexibility extends to her academic credentials. Mary holds degrees in Mathematics, as well as in Classics and Humanities. Her PhD thesis on human behaviour and belief systems was completed within three years and was described as outstanding by a senior Professor at Oxford University.
Mary maintains her academic interests in parallel with her working life and has lectured and tutored part-time. She has authored and presented a paper on the mating rituals of the ancient Greek adolescent at .the Australian Society for Classical Studies (ASCS) 2007 conference.
Mary has also authored and presented a paper on the benefits of anaesthetic record keeping at the Health Informatics Conference HIC2009. Her paper has since been published in the electronic Journal of Health Informatics.

About the Series: Life, Death and Artemis
This series, via an extensive process of analysis and assessment shows conclusively that when looking at the broader picture:

1. the cult of Artemis qualifies as a religion in its own right;

2. that the Greek perception of Artemis demonstrates a significant correlation between Artemis and βíος, the way of life;

3. that she was a goddess who not only started and ended life but also kept it on track throughout its span, keeping it within defined boundaries and pruning out errant individuals and societies – generally preserving and maintaining life in balance.

The series consists of several volumes; the first addresses the diverse imagery of Artemis; the second addresses the cult practices; and the third addresses the perceived active role of Artemis. The concluding section of volume 3 summarises the findings, both similarities and differences, to demonstrate the level of support that exists for the thesis that Artemis was essentially a life power.
