French to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary - History / Ancient Greece
French term or phrase:savoir partagé
From an academic paper on ancient Greece. In proposing a model of how the Greeks viewed their multiple gods, the author suggests a network of identities for each deity and then says:
'Ce réseau est articulé autour de plusieurs noyaux sémantiques et agencé en profondeur par des associations et des concaténations de catégories ***puisant au savoir partagé *** de la Grèce ancienne.'
I'm happy with my translation of the rest of the sentence but can't nail the 'puisant au savoir partagé' bit. The best I've got at the moment is 'known to have been shared in ancient Greece' but I'd appreciate someone else's views.
