"The relationship between the Homeric epics and archaeology has long suffered mixed fortunes, swinging between 'fundamentalist' attempts to use archaeology in order to demonstrate the essential historicity of the epics and their background, and outright rejection of the idea that archaeology is capable of contributing anything at all to our understanding and appreciation of the epics. Archaeology and the Homeric Epic concentrates less on historicity in favour of exploring a variety of other, perhaps sometimes more oblique, ways in which we can use a multi-disciplinary approach ? archaeology, philology, anthropology and social history ? to help offer insights into the epics, the contexts of their possibly prolonged creation, aspects of their 'prehistory', and what they may have stood for at various times in their long oral and written history. 0 0The effects of the Homeric epics on the history and popular reception of archaeology, especially in the particular context of modern Germany, is also a theme that is explored here. Contributors explore a variety of issues including the relationships between visual and verbal imagery, the social contexts of epic (or sub-epic) creation or re-creation, the roles of bards and their relationships to different types of patrons and audiences, the construction and uses of 'history' as traceable through both epic and archaeology and the relationship between 'prehistoric' (oral) and 'historical' (recorded in writing) periods. Throughout, the emphasis is on context and its relevance to the creation, transmission, re-creation and manipulation of epic in the present (or near-present) as well as in the ancient Greek past."--Back cover.

A landmark of orthodox Christianity, Symeon Metaphrastes's tenth-century Menologion is one of the most important Byzantine literary creations. This was a liturgical book, usually in multiple volumes, that included various texts regarding the saints--mostly Passions (martyrdom accounts, or martyria) and Lives (biographies, or bioi)--arranged according to the sequence of feast days in the fixed Byzantine liturgical year that began on September 1. Its primary purpose was the provision of a text dedicated to each saint on his or her feast day to be read aloud during liturgical services (usually vigils, especially in monasteries, but also in urban churches). From the vast corpus of Metaphrastes's menologion, the following six texts were edited and translated into English for the first time in this volume: Life, Conduct, and Passion of Saints Kyprianos and Ioustina; Life and Conduct of Saint Pelagia of Antioch; Life, Conduct, and Passion of the Holy and Glorious Martyrs Galaktion and Episteme; Miracle Concerning Euphemia the Young Maiden; Passion of the Holy and Triumphant Martyr of Christ Barbara; Life, Conduct, and Passion of the Holy Martyr of Christ Saint Eugenia and Her Parents. These texts are united by the central role played by female protagonists; women who test social expectations take center stage. More importantly, these texts belong to a particular type of hagiographical story included in the original Metaphrastic collection, which we can view as "Christian novels."-- Provided by publisher

This study of Euripides' Electra approaches the text through the lens of modern linguistics, marrying it with traditional literary criticism in order to provide new and informative means of analysing and interpreting what is considered to be one of the playwright's most controversial works. It is the first systematic attempt to apply a variety of modern linguistic theories, including conversation analysis, pragmatics, sociolinguistics (on gender and politeness), paroemiology, and discourse studies, to a single Greek tragedy. The volume focuses specifically on issues of characterization, demonstrating how Euripides shaped his figures through their use of language, while also using the same methodology to tackle some of the play's major textual issues. An introductory chapter treats each of the linguistic approaches used throughout the book, and discusses some of the general issues surrounding the play's interpretation. This is followed by chapters on the figures of the Peasant, Electra herself, and Orestes, in each case showing how their characterization is determined by their speaking style and their 'linguistic behaviour'. Three further chapters focus on textual criticism in stichomythia, on the messenger speech, and on the agon. By using modern linguistic methodologies to argue for a balanced interpretation of the Electra's main characters, the volume both challenges dominant scholarly opinion and enhances the literary interpretation of this well-studied play. Taking full account of recent and older work in both linguistics and classics, it will be of use to readers and researchers in both fields, and includes translations of all Greek cited and a glossary of linguistic terminology to make the text accessible to both.

  • Carmen iambicum in S. Theodorum Stratelatem Carmen iambicum in S. Theodorum Tironem Carmen iambicum in Annunciationem Canon iambicus in S. Iohannem Chrysostomum.
"First critical edition of the literary dossier of Merkourios the Grammarian (probably early 14th cent.), including two long unpublished works. This is the first critical edition of the literary corpus of a minor Byzantine poet, the formerly little-known Merkourios the Grammarian (Mercurius Grammaticus). He wrote after AD 1100 and can probably be identified with the homonymous student of Maximos Planoudes. A dating of his dossier to the so-called “early Palaeologan renaissance“ is, thus, plausible. Merkourios composed four dodecasyllabic poems with a total of ca. 2,190 verses. The two longer ones, which are published here for the first time, are hagiographical rewritings (metaphrases) concerning Sts Theodore Teron and Theodore Stratelates. The third poem is a rewriting of a pseudo-Chrysostomic homily on the Annunciation, whereas the fourth, hymnographic work is an iambic canon on St John Chrysostom. The latter two works were previously published in obscure and inadequate editions. These texts are particularly noteworthy on account of their literary forms and help acquiring a more precise picture of the extent of Byzantine hagiographical and homiletic literature in verse on the one hand, and iambic hymnography on the other. The edition also contributes towards the completion of the Greek hagiographical, hymnographic, and homiletic dossiers of Sts Theodores, St John Chrysostom and the Annunciation respectively. The present edition is preceded by an original introduction on the poet and the poems, focussing on their contents, models, structure, genres, possible functions and reasons of composition, metre, vocabulary, manuscript tradition and, where applicable, previous editions. The final chapter presents the editorial principles. The establishment of the text is accompanied by detailed apparatuses, mainly the critical apparatus as well as the apparatus of sources and significant parallel passages. A series of indices completes the work."--Publisher's website.

  • The doctrines of Praxagoras
  • Praxagoras in context : the place of his doctrines in the history of Greco-Roman medicine and philosophy.
The distinction that Praxagoras of Cos (4th-3rd c. BC) made between arteries and veins and his views on pulsation and pneuma are two significant turning points in the history of ideas and medicine. In this book Orly Lewis presents the fragmentary evidence for this topic and offers a fresh analysis of Praxagoras' views on the soul and the functions of the heart and pneuma. In so doing, she highlights the empirical basis of Praxagoras' views and his engagement with earlier medical debates and with Aristotle's physiology. The study consists of an edition and translation of the relevant fragments (some absent from the standard 1958 edition) followed by a commentary and a synthetic analysis of Praxagoras' views and their place in the history of medicine and ideas.

Widely considered the first poet in the Western tradition to address the matter of his own experience, Hesiod occupies a seminal position in literary history. The Theogony brings together and formalizes many of the Greek myth narratives, detailing the genealogy of the Greek gods and their violent struggles for power. Works and Days seems on its face to be a compendium of advice about managing a farm, but it ranges far beyond this scope to meditate on the virtues of a good life, morality, justice, and the place of humans in the universe. Considered foundational texts of Western literature, these poems are concerned with orderliness and organization, and they proclaim those ideals from small scale to vast, from the legibility of a handful of seeds to the story of the cosmos. Presented here in a bilingual edition, Johnson's translation takes care to preserve Hesiod's expression of his themes in the structure of his lines and sentences, achieving a sonic and rhythmic balance that enables us to hear his music across the millennia.

  • Writing beyond genres: the Dionysiac festival in Gerytades and wealth
  • Conclusion.
Aristophanes' engagement with tragedy is one of the most striking features of his comedies: Euripides appears repeatedly as a character in these plays, jokes about tragedy and tragic poets abound, and parodies of tragedy frequently underlie whole scenes and even the plots of these plays. Tragedy on the Comic Stage contextualizes this engagement with tragedy within Greek comedy as a genre by examining paratragedy in the fragments of Aristophanes' contemporaries and successors in the fifth and fourth centuries. Farmer organizes these fragments under two rubrics. First, he discusses fragments that show characters discussing tragedy, use tragic poets as characters, or make reference to the dramatic festivals; these fragments, Farmer argues, develop a <"culture of tragedy>" within Greek comedy, a consistent set of tropes and devices that depict tragedy as part of the world inhabited by the characters of these plays. Second, he assembles fragments that show tragic parody, imitations of tragedy that render tragic language humorous or ironic by juxtaposing it with the base characters and quotidian circumstances that make up Greek comedy. Tragedy on the Comic Stage then illustrates these features of fragmentary paratragedy within three intact Aristophanic comedies: Wasps, Women at the Thesmophoria, and Wealth. These new readings of Aristophanes' plays show the value of reading Aristophanes in conjunction with the comic fragments, and insist on the subtlety and complexity of Aristophanic paratragedy.

"Aigyptiazein è una voce del verbo adoperato da Cratino e Aristofane per dileggiare sulla scena personaggi ateniesi contemporanei ricorrendo a una più o meno velata parodia nei confronti degli abitanti del paese del Nilo"--Cover flap.
"Aigyptiazein" is a verb used by Cratinus and Aristophanes in their comedy to mock contemporary Athenians by parodying, in a more or less subtle way, the inhabitants of the Nile. This work focuses on the philological reading of fragments of Greek comedy, and attempts to reconstruct the theme of Egypt in the cultural and mythic imagination of the comic poets, and in that of their audience.

"L'Anabase de Xénophon est à la fois la chronique d'une surprenante expédition (401-399) et le premier récit autobiographique de la littérature. Les Dix-Mille, mercenaires levés par Cyrus pour détrôner son frère, roi de Perse, parcoururent 6 000 km en deux ans sur le plateau anatolien pour finir à Sinope sur la mer Noire. Ce récit constitue une source essentielle sur la Perse et unique sur ces peuples curieux du haut plateau anatolien, que Xénophon décrit comme un ethnologue. Enfin, le fonctionnement de cette troupe ressemble à celui d'une cité grecque où la parole est reine et où les généraux doivent convaincre pour se faire obéir. On ne saurait mieux que dans l'Anabase puiser une image complète et contrastée de l'homme grec."--Page 4 of cover.

Since its publication in 1990, Athenaze: An Introduction to Ancient Greek has helped tens of thousands of students learn classical Greek. Building on the bestselling tradition of previous editions, the long-awaited third edition combines the best features of traditional and modern teaching methods. It provides a unique course of instruction that allows students to read connected Greek narrative right from the beginning and guides them to the point where they can begin reading complete classical texts. James Morwood, editor of the Oxford Grammar of Classical Greek and the Pocket Oxford Classical Greek Dictionary, brings his expertise and years of teaching experience to this revision. Carefully designed to hold students' interest, the course begins in Book I with a fictional narrative about an Attic farmer's family placed in a precise historical context (432-431 B.C.). This narrative, interwoven with tales from mythology and the Persian Wars, gradually gives way in Book II to adapted passages from Thucydides, Plato, and Herodotus and ultimately to excerpts of the original Greek of Bacchylides, Thucydides, and Aristophanes' Acharnians. Essays on relevant aspects of ancient Greek culture and history are also woven throughout.
