Berndt-Ersoz explores Phrygian cult and cult practices through a detailed analysis of rock-cut monuments in their preserved context in central Anatolia, and in combination with other Phrygian religious material groups. She draws on already published and recorded material, partly at least to indicate where and how further surveys and excavations should be undertaken to clarify issues she raises. An underlying question is the role of the Phrygians in the formative stage of the Iron Age and subsequent centuries. The study is updated from her 2003 Ph.D. dissertation in classical archaeology and ancient history at the University of Stockholm.
