Abstract

This book encompasses papers presented at the XXVII Classical Studies Week (2014) of the Federal University of Ceará. The Symposium was consecrated to the bimillennial celebration of Augustus’ death, and proposed discussions about cultural dialogues between Greece and Rome under Augustan ideology. How do rhetoric, philosophy, literature and history engage in such dialogues and in such controversial ideology? The papers in this book highlight aspects of that discussion, and are divided into three sections: Section I contemplates philosophy, rhetoric and politics, particularly in the relationship between young Octavian and Cicero; Section II contemplates Augustan literature (Horace, Virgil, Tibullus and Ovid); finally, Section III approaches history and Greek comedy through Plutarch.

Abstract

The multidisciplinary contributions to this collection of papers look at Rome as the cultural and Milan as the political capital in the 4th and 5th centuries. In the literature of the time both cities were perceived as spaces in which the political and clerical power struggles, and the political and cultural changes which were so important for the Latin West took place. The cities are thereby understood as "stages" upon which the world theatre of the politics of power, culture and the church was produced. The reconstruction of both "stage settings" is based on texts, inscriptions and archaeological remains.; Therese Fuhrer, Freie Universität Berlin.

Abstract

Die Entstehung von Großstädten ist kein Novum der letzten drei Jahrhunderte. Auch im griechisch-römischen Kulturraum gab es bereits Millionenstädte, die in struktureller, kultureller und sozialer Hinsicht heutigen Großstädten durchaus vergleichbar waren. Aber hielt diese besondere Form menschlichen Zusammenlebens auch Einzug in die Literatur ihrer Zeit? Ohne Zweifel wurde in den Dichtungen der augusteischen und kaiserzeitlichen Epoche eine Großstadt wiederholt zum Ort der Literatur gewählt: die Hauptstadt Rom. Die vorliegende Untersuchung geht der Frage nach, inwieweit die Großstadt mit ihren (spezifischen) räumlichen Merkmalen in den zeitgenössischen Werken thematisiert wird und wie die lateinischen Autoren sich zu ihr als einem eigenen literarischen Gegenstand positionieren.

Abstract

Les guerres constantes menées par Rome dans la péninsule ibérique aux deux derniers siècles avant notre ère ont la réputation d'avoir particulièrement contribué à fragiliser le régime républicain en déstabilisant le système de recrutement traditionnel des armées et en révélant les limites de leurs conceptions de la guerre et du combat. Ce livre montre qu'il n'en fut rien. D'une envergure en général plus restreinte qu'on l'admet ordinairement, les conflits opposant Rome aux peuples de la pénin...

Abstract

Ce fut le grand exploit et la fierté des Empereurs romains que d’avoir fondé l’approvisionnement de Rome sur des bases nouvelles et plus sûres. Pour expliquer leur succès, il ne faut certes négliger ni l’acquisition d’importantes nouvelles sources d’approvisionnement (l’Egypte), ni l’amélioration des moyens de transport et de stockage, ainsi que des installations portuaires, ni les progrès de l’administration (le préfet de l’annone). Mais la concentration des armées aux frontières et leur rel...

Abstract

To this day, no comprehensive academic study of the development of guidebooks to Rome over time has been performed. This book treats the history of guidebooks to Rome from the Middle Ages up to the early twentieth century. It is based on the results of the interdisciplinary research project Topos and Topography, led by Anna Blennow and Stefano Fogelberg Rota. From the case studies performed within the project, it becomes evident that the guidebook as a phenomenon was formed in Rome during the later Middle Ages and early Renaissance. The elements and rhetorical strategies of guidebooks over time have shown to be surprisingly uniform, with three important points of development: a turn towards a more user-friendly structure from the seventeenth century and onward the so-called ’Baedeker effect’ in the mid-nineteenth century and the introduction of a personalized guiding voice in the first half of the twentieth century. Thus, the ‘guidebook tradition’ is an unusually consistent literary oeuvre, which also forms a warranty for the authority of every new guidebook. In this respect, the guidebook tradition is intimately associated with the city of Rome, with which it shares a constantly renovating yet eternally fixed nature.

Abstract

This book contains some of the papers that were presented at the first meeting of the newly formed African Expert Study Group on International Criminal Law / Groupe des Experts Africaines en Droit Pénal International held in September 2011 in Brussels, Belgium. The group was established under the auspices of the Multinational Development Policy Dialogue (hereinafter ‘MDPD’) and the Rule of Law programme of the German Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (‘KAS’) in 2010 modeled on the successful sister group in Latin America. This latter group was originally founded as an expert group to monitor the implementation of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (‘ICC’) in Latin America within the framework of cooperation between KAS’ regional Rule of Law Programme and the Department for Foreign and International Law of the Institute for Criminal Law and Criminal Justice of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen in 2002. The newly formed African group consists of judicial experts with both academic and practical background from various parts of Sub-Saharan Africa. The importance of such a group for the African continent cannot be overestimated. Africa plays a vital role in international criminal law and justice, both as an active player at the ICC and at the regional and national level. As for the group’s composition and outreach, the aim is to broaden regional representation and further consolidate membership. In 2012, the group will meet in Nairobi, Kenya to deal with topics surrounding the ‘Potential for the domestic prosecution of international crimes in Africa.’ Topics for future meetings abound given the multi-faceted African legal and political practice regarding international criminal justice in general and the ICC in particular. The group should in particular monitor the recent international or transnational criminal justice developments at the regional African level as well as relevant national developments.

Abstract

Every age invents a new way of writing history, or at least seeks to shed light on the present by examining the past differently. For the past thirty years the amount of data produced by archaeology, especially by preventive excavations, has grown exponentially, thus opening new research perspectives on the history of ancient techniques and economies. Against a background of paucity of written sources, archaeology is currently producing series of documents enabling us to study the real state ...

Abstract

The ancient city of Rome can be understood as an ensemble of monuments, as aspace of actionfor its inhabitants, as a literary construction. Communication took place in it, about it and through it; that is by means of furnishing it with a conscious programme of buildings and works of art. From the perspective of various classical disciplines, the papers in this volume analyse the relationships between these three forms of communication about the city of Rome from the beginning of the Principate to Late Antiquity.

Abstract

Romanisée avant la Gaule Narbonnaise, l'Espagne a été, après la Sicile et avant la Grèce et l'Orient, le laboratoire de l'impérialisme romain, confronté à la thalassocratie punique. La Bétique, encore appelée « Espagne Ultérieure », a révélé un très dense tissu urbain : elle illustre le fait que la romanisation est par essence urbanisation. Superposée au vieux fonds ibéro-punique et aux établissements grecs, la romanisation de la Péninsule a créé partout, pour reprendre l'expression de l'empe...
