  • Anonymus Aurelianensis III in Aristotelis analytica priora.
"This is the first critical edition of the earliest known Latin commentary on Aristotle's Prior Analytics, the Anonymus Aurelianensis III. In addition to the critical text, Christina Thomsen Thörnqvist's edition contains a comparative analysis of the anonymous commentary and the extant Greek commentaries as well as a full comparison between Boethius' translation and the translation used by the commentator. The edition provides a solid foundation for further study on the earliest medieval exegesis on the Prior Analytics and is an essential resource for any scholar who wants to learn more about the development of logic in general and the medieval reception of Aristotelian syllogistic in particular."-- Provided by publisher.

lxxvi, 298 pages : illustration ; 26 cm.
The 'Sacrum Armamentarium' by Andronikos Kamateros is one of the most important and voluminous remaining Byzantine 'inedita' from the 12th century. Written for Emperor Manuel Komnenos (1143-1180), this writing is a 'stockpile' of theological texts to be used in refuting the theological argumentations of the opponents of the Orthodox Church. The 'Sacrum Armamentarium' consists of two distinct parts: the first one dedicated to the Latin Church and the second one dedicated to the Armenian Church. Each part contains a dialogue between the emperor and the representatives sent from Rome and Armenia, claimed to be 'verbatim' transcriptions of real discussions, and an anthological section. This volume presents the first critical edition of the anti-Latin part only; the topics under discussion in this part cover two of the points of disagreement between Catholicism and Orthodoxy: the primacy of the Roman Church and the procession of the Holy Spirit, the 'Filioque'.

  • La place du sport dans l'éducation athénienne -- La place des jeunes filles -- Projet de Philostrate -- Définition du gymnase -- Définition de la gymnastique et des exercices -- Le médecin, le gymnaste, le pédotribe, des spécialités ? -- Le gymnaste -- Le kairos -- Le kairos de Lysippe -- Kairos et symmétria -- La symmétria, suite -- De l'utilité de connaître les symmetrias -- Le Canon de Polyclète comme moyenne -- Le traité De la danse (De saltatione) de Lucien et le Canon de Polyclète -- Les Athlètes -- Les grands dans leur petitesse -- Matière et forme.

La norme de la tête -- Les phoxoi, les "têtes pointues" -- Types d'exercices : jeux de balle, lutte, ... danse -- Quelques exercices -- La musique, la danse -- Conseils d'hygiène aux athlètes -- La rétention du souffle -- La gymnastique et la guerre -- Décadence. L'air du temps -- Vue de Philostrate sur l'origine de la guerre -- L'enrôlement des filles.
"Le traité De la Gymnastique est une oeuvre de Philostrate l'Ancien, écrivain du Hic siècle de notre ère (vivant peut-être sous le règne de l'empereur Héliogabale). Il s'agit du seul texte complet sur ce sujet qui nous soit parvenu. Publié pour la première fois au XIXe siècle, il traite d'un sujet majeur pour les Anciens : la question des rapports entre la forme du vivant, la santé et la beauté. Quelle opinion faut-il adopter sur la gymnastique ? Quelle autre, si ce n'est de la tenir pour une science (sophia), composée de médecine et de pédotribie, science annexe de la précédente ? Le pédotribe exécute les manoeuvres que le gymnaste ordonne, sous le regard du médecin. Le gymnaste, dit Philostrate, est le meilleur juge de la nature."--P. [4] of cover.

  • Machine generated contents note: 1. Expressions of time: an introduction; 2. Expressions of time in Thucydides; 3. Expressions of time: style, genre, and diachrony; 4. Expressions of time in Biblical Greek; 5. A retrospective: going back in time; 6. Summary.
"How did Ancient Greek express that an event occurred at a particular time, for a certain duration, or within a given time frame? The answer to these questions depends on a variety of conditions - the nature of the time noun, the tense and aspect of the verb, the particular historical period of Greek during which the author lived - that existing studies of the language do not take sufficiently into account. This book accordingly examines the circumstances that govern the use of the genitive, dative, and accusative of time, as well as the relevant prepositional constructions, primarily in Greek prose of the fifth century BC through the second century AD, but also in Homer. While the focus is on developments in Greek, translations of the examples, as well as a fully glossed summary chapter, make it accessible to linguists interested in the expression of time generally"-- Provided by publisher.
"As the final task in writing a book on Ancient Greek expressions of time, it seems fitting to take a diachronic look at its genesis. After all - if I may indulge in Vendlerian language - writing it was certainly a (durative) Accomplishment rather than an (instantaneous) Achievement; in any case, I'm very much relieved it didn't remain an (atelic) Activity! Work on it began during 2006-07, my last year as a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge, and I remain extremely grateful to the Master and Fellows for providing an environment so conducive to research"-- Provided by publisher.

xxii, 296 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm.
Right from the beginning, classical literature has been embroiled with questions of authenticity, fakes, frauds, and, of course, scandal. Issues of dubious authorship, and contested authority confront philologists, critics and publishers today as surely as they did in the classical era itself. The new era of postmodernism, however, encourages us to look at the work of the forger with fresh eyes, and recent scholarship reflects this in an interdisciplinary approach which goes well beyond the conventional academic endeavor to separate the authentic from the fake. 'Fakes and Forgers of Classical Literature' comprises essays from an international cast of scholars who, in their diverse and creative approaches to questions of authenticity both old and new, radically revise the position of the forged text in the literary tradition and, in light of modern approaches of philology and literary criticism, offer exciting new strategies for understanding forgery and the play with authenticity within ancient literature itself.

In the writings of Philostratus (ca. 170-ca. 250 CE), the renaissance of Greek literature in the second century CE reached its height. His Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Lives of the Sophists, and Imagines reconceive in different ways Greek religion, philosophy, and art in and for the world of the Roman Empire. In this volume, Heroicus and Gymnasticus, two works of equal creativity and sophistication, together with two brief Discourses (Dialexeis), complete the Loeb edition of his writings. Heroicus is a conversation in a vineyard amid ruins of the Protesilaus shrine (opposite Troy on the Hellespont), between a wise and devout vinedresser and an initially skeptical Phoenician sailor, about the beauty, continuing powers, and worship of the Homeric heroes. With information from his local hero, the vinedresser reveals unknown stories of the Trojan campaign especially featuring Protesilaus and Palamedes, and describes complex, miraculous, and violent rituals in the cults of Achilles. Gymnasticus is the sole surviving ancient treatise on sports. It reshapes conventional ideas about the athletic body and expertise of the athletic trainer and also explores the history of the Olympic Games and other major Greek athletic festivals, portraying them as distinctive venues for the display of knowledge.
