Abstract

Ao pôr em paralelo o percurso biográfico de Alcibíades e de Coriolano, Plutarco escolheu duas figuras, uma grega, outra romana, de contextos históricos não muito similares. Alcibíades pertence ao contexto de uma democracia em crise, numa Hélade em vésperas de se lançar na guerra civil generalizada ou já envolvida nela – a Guerra do Peloponeso – em que, inclusivamente, o velho inimigo persa era visto como aliado possível para ajudar a enfraquecer a facção grega contrária. Coriolano, por seu turno, pertence aos primórdios da República, numa Roma pré-helénica. A figura do primeiro tem contornos históricos nítidos, enquanto na do segundo se esbatem a História e os contornos lendários. Ambos ficaram órfãos demasiado cedo, na infância, distinguindo-se Alcibíades pelo refinamento da sua educação. Mas a essa paideia refinada corresponde uma capacidade camaleónica (a imagem é de Plutarco) de adaptação

Abstract

Sung at festivals in honour of the gods or at banquets, heard in the theatre or in the agora, contemplated in the walls of temples or in table vessels, myths are part of the daily life of the Greeks. Zeus, and the deities of Olympus, Prometheus, Heracles, Oedipus, Theseus, Helen, Pandora, Ulysses are some of them, the most striking. Mythical narratives, whether they are known through texts or through images, participate in the construction of as varied domains of Greek experience as the polytheistic pantheon, food codes, relations between the sexes, the view of the phases of life and death or history communities.

Abstract

This Portuguese contribution to the debate on the concept of “Empire” brings together 17 essays covering various areas and periods across Antiquity. Biblical sources allow us to structure various categories and organize their related meanings as valuable paths to inform our understating of the idea of “Empire”. Egypt first serves as the opportunity to inquire the usefulness of “Empire” as a concept within the larger discussion of periodization in History, as well as the scope and limitations of its definitions, as the observed political dissolution in the Late New Kingdom shows. Regarding Ancient “Mesopotamian Empires”, the first “Empire” is usually attributed to the political formulas brought forth by the dynasty of Akkad, which emerged before the hegemony of Babylon. The underlying ideology to Hammurabi’s social and military policies through two crucial moments in Babylonian History provides the ground to analyze the emergence of its first hegemony: the war with Elam and the expedition to the Kingdom of Larsa. Approaches to the Anatolian and the Phoenician/Syrian-Palestinian territories follow a methodology focused on myth and religious narratives and the traces of political realities found there, as well as a reflection on the validity of “imperialism” when applied to the Phoenician colonial world. Later Mesopotamian imperial formulas are analyzed within the context of violence, military and ritual: on Jeremias and the rationale for a heavenly justified submission of Judah to the so-called “Neo-Babylonian Empire”; on Nabonidus, the last king of this dynasty; and on the diverging behavior of both Nabonidus and Cyrus to the cult of Marduk. Herodotus, a privileged source for the classical perception of eastern formulas, displays the Persian Empire as the background for different Greek political proposals at play (famously in 3.80-82), and informs us of the queenship and the queens of Ancient Persia. Moreover, the role and status of women in Hellenistic societies is further examined, most notably in its relations to power. The last four essays propose a conceptual genealogy for the idea of imperium through the Roman World: from the representation Ancient Historiography creates of the processes structuring Roman “imperialism” and their agents; the interpretation Suetonius proposes of imperial power and how it ought to be used; to the validity of a certain notion of “globalization” applied to the Late Roman expanse.

Abstract

Con este libro se hace justicia al propio Plutarco, tan sensible a las bellas artes en sus descripciones y en sus reflexiones y, además, se les abren nuevas perspectivas a los futuros filólogos. Aproximaciones iconográficas a la obra de Plutarco del estilo de la que presentamos aquí llenan de ilusión a cuantos nos empeñamos en sembrar de cultura clásica una sociedad tan necesitada de ella como es la de nuestra burguesía alejandrina del siglo XXI. Puedo asegurar que Luisa, Paulo y Nuno han sido capaces de transmitirnos esa ilusión.
