Abstract

The book brings together seven essays on Cicero written by specialists in the Author. The essays are grouped into two sections: the first one presents papers on Cicero’s works (the dialogues: Lucullus, De finibus, De oratore, De officiis); the papers in the second one discuss on both the early and late reception of Cicero (in Seneca, Petrarch and Erasmus). The authors are professors from Brazilian (Adriano Scatolin, Bianca Fanelli Morganti, Elaine Cristine Sartorelli, Sidney Calheiros de Lima), French (Carlos Lévy) and Italian universities (Aldo Setaioli, Ermanno Malaspina). The book avoids traditional biographical approach, which tends to take the works of Cicero as a reliable witness of political and family events, sometimes distrusts them as a distorted picture of public and private actors. The essays here assembled also avoid conceiving Cicero’s works as either the Author’s profession of faith in a philosophical doctrine, or a tendentious presentation of the theses of philosophical schools. Instead, the contributors adopt another interpretative key, so that, when analyzing a philosophical dialogue of Cicero, instead of seeking references to its historical moment, focus on its controversial aspects (due to the dispute between the schools of philosophy), rhetorical aspects (the amplifying devices through which the Author compares the strength of one thesis with the weakness of another), fictional aspects (including the description of the scene and the picture of the characters). Thus, it can be said that the book seeks a more appropriate approach to Cicero’s works, not taking them as mere source of historical knowledge, but considering their historicity, that is, the devices for discursive production of their own time.

Abstract

Some of the texts gathered in this book were produced for the international event "Hellenistic Historiography: new theoretical-methodological approaches", held at DLCV / FFLCH / USP and MAE / USP between September 15 and 16, 2016. Both the event and the book problematize by their formats, the very notion of "Hellenism" in which they are based: both take it in the broad chronological sense as proposed by Droysen in the Vorrede of 1836, that is, a period of antiquity which would extend approximately from the death of Alexander in 323 BC until the founding of Constantinople in 330 BC.

Abstract

The veneration and worship of Queen Saint Elisabeth, in Portugal, started shortly after her death in 1336 and were registered in chronistic, hagiographic, biographical, notarial and other texts, that gathered abundant information about her life and miracles. Pedro Perpinhão, member of the Society of Jesus, who worked as a teacher, orator and researcher in Portugal between 1551 and 1561, wrote in Latin a biography about Queen Saint Elisabeth of Portugal, De Vita et Moribus Beatae Elisabethae Lusitaniae Reginae, that was the first in this language and the most complete work ever written. To compose it, he consulted all Portuguese medieval sources and used them exhaustively and impartially in order to be completely faithful to historical truth. This first Latin biography of Queen Saint' Elisabeth gathers all the knowledge of the time about her more than two centuries after her death.
