Abstract

Comes from the 10th century the oldest codex with the treatise On the Sublime. For a long time attributed to Cassius Longinus (third century ), the text is now generally considered a first century work, written by an anonymous or a Dionysius Longinus whose life and work is unknown. Ignored, as it seems, in Antiquity and the Middle Ages, the text came to meet its editio princeps only in 1554, in Basel and by the hand of Francesco Robortello. It was then successively edited and translated, first into Latin and later into several European languages, starting with the famous French version of Boileau that for a long time was the main source for the knowledge of the treatise in Europe. Peri Hypsous moves away from the stylistic approach of ancient rhetorical books and presents a definition of Sublime as a quality of discourse which produces in the hearers and readers not persuasion but wonder and ecstasy. It is precisely this idea of wonder and shudder that has inspired the works of Burke (A Philosophical Enquiry into the origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful, 1757) and Kant, by whose hands the treatise On the Sublime entered the history of Western Aesthetics.

Abstract

The study of Ancient History is a process encompassing several fields of knowledge, various methods, several types of sources, sometimes including comparisons with other civilizations of antiquity or from other periods. Historiographical texts raise a methodical criticism which comprehend data from archaeology, but also from literature and, within this range, theatre, rhetoric, dialogues and specific treaties of the several disciplines. As a reflection of such a multidisciplinarity, this volume compiles a series of texts in which Ancient History dialogs with other subject areas, namely: hermeneutics, literature and arts, political rhetoric, philosophy, religion and reception of Ancient History in modernity.

Abstract

The studies collected in this volume reflect, in general, upon food given its extraordinary cultural and identity value. With different approaches to food heritage, whether from a linguistic perspective, or from a more literary or cultural analysis, with a due historical, social and spatial framework, the set of papers highlight the importance of this topic, from classical antiquity up to the present day. In fact, food and everything that goes with it lead us on a journey revealing man’s way of life and his relationship with nature and other living beings. The thirty-four contributions of this volume are gathered in the following chapters: 1. Food: intangible heritage; 2. Food and literary heritage; 3. Food and linguistic heritage; 4. Food: health and wellbeing; 5. Food: society and culture; 6. Food and intercultural dialogue. With this volume it is also intended to open up perspectives on new research areas of food heritage as an essential source of knowledge for today.

Abstract

Languages and cities are irreverent: they never let / have never let themselves be reduced to their materiality. Cities are not equivalent to cities and languages are not equivalent to languages. Languages and cities are undisciplined even in the face of any norm to which they are subjected, as thinking and language, by not being definitive, changes with each speaker, in the course of the exercise of their citizenship regardless of the age, wishes to affirm himself/herself as a free person and each linguistic community wishes to protect its identity. It is only through liberty that the knowledge and progress of humankind, unconditionally based on the exercise of verbal language, are accomplished.

Abstract

The present work offers the first translation into Portuguese of the oldest Greek gastronomic text that has come down to us, albeit only in fragmentary form. The poem written by the Sicilian author Archestratus (4th century BC) is an account of the sophisticated food eaten by the aristocratic elites with enough economic power to buy the most expensive ingredients (such as high quality fresh fish) and to undertake the gastronomic tours implied in the text. In chapter I, a survey is offered of the biographical data pertaining to the author and of the transmission and reception of his work up to the present day. This is followed by the translation of the 60 fragments (chapter II), with notes and photographs that illustrate some of the dishes. In chapter III, a detailed analysis is offered of the poem’s contribution to the historical study of food in ancient Greece. Here, “Archestratus’ cuisine” is considered from five perspectives: produce, culinary methods, utensils, furniture and production agents. Attention may be drawn to the use of maps showing the whereabouts of ingredients used in the confection of the recipes present in the work and a detailed study of the terminology used in the poet’s kitchen. Extra features in the book are appendices with some of the recipes, updated according to modern standards; bibliography (editions and secondary literature); and indices of the food-orientated fauna and flora mentioned (in Portuguese, with Latin scientific name and Greek term).
