About the Author

Almut-Barbara Renger is professor of ancient religion, culture, and their reception history at the Institute for the Scientific Study of Religion at the Freie Universitat Berlin. She is the author or editor of several books and resides in Berlin.


"Oedipus and the Sphinx is a highly original, well-composed masterpiece. Writing in crystal-clear prose, Almut-Barbara Renger displays breathtaking erudition in reporting the cornerstones of the Oedipus myth and its reception. She delivers a beautiful contribution to the general theory of myth by unfolding the history of a single 'big myth.' Big myths require new approaches and retellings, and Renger delivers both a general introduction to a core problem of religious studies and comparative literature and a surprising new perspective on an old story." (Eckart Goebel, New York University)"
