    The modern history of money began when in early Greek antiquity a new form of currency was invented that was certified, not through material goods nor by the sovereign, but through rituals of sacrifice in the temple.The talk will draw on anthropological, historical,and contemporary findings and bring together perspectives from the history of religions,and economic theories. It will be accompanied by visual examples that draw a line from antiquity to modern economic and financial institutions.
