This volume aims to present multiple readings on the subject of water, from its concrete and material use to the symbolic, metaphorical and immaterial dimension: as primordial element associated with the creation of the world, source of life and death, space of leisure, element of rituals, way of communication or separation between the people, medium and sign of civilization and structuring element of the city. The sources used come from ancient philosophy, religion, poetry, dramaturgy, history and biography, archeology, both in antiquity and in the humanistic and contemporary reception.
