PUBLIUS AELIUS ARISTIDES (A.D. 117-180) was born at Hadriani in Mysia. Apparently wealthy, he was superbly educated. Among his teachers was Alexander of Cotiaeum, who later instructed Lucius Verus and the future emperor Marcus Aurelius. Aristides determined to become a professional orator at a time when Greek oratory was enjoying a renewed popularity. Early in his life his health began to fail, and his illnesses, partly real, partly imagined, often impeded, but never overcame his desire for success in his chosen career. Although at first a devotee of the healing god Sarapis, he later became a worshipper of Asclepius, at whose temple in Pergamum he spent two continuous years as an incubant and in whose cult he kept faith throughout most of his life. His stylistic abilities and his attempts at emulating the great Attic writers made him famous. He was on friendly terms with many of the most powerful figures of the province of Asia and with a number of high dignitaries of the Roman Empire. Fifty three separate works of his survive, among which are to be found criticisms of Plato, treatises on oratory, the source of the Nile, orations on provincial matters, prose hymns to various gods, the Panathenaic Oration and the speech To Rome. Of especial interest are the Sacred Tales, which provide through the narrative of his illnesses and his dreams over many years, a unique insight, particularly for psychoanalysts, into the psychopathology of a highly neurotic man of classical times

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Publius Aelius Aristides Theodorus was among the most celebrated authors of the Second Sophistic and an important figure in the transmission of Hellenism. Born to wealthy landowners in Mysia in 117, he studied in Athens and Pergamum before he fell chronically ill in the early 140s and retreated to Pergamum's healing shrine of Asclepius. By 147 Aristides was able to resume his public activities and pursue a successful oratorical career. Based at his family estate in Smyrna, he traveled between bouts of illness and produced speeches and lectures, declamations on historical themes, polemical works, prose hymns, and various essays, all of it displaying deep and creative familiarity with the classical literary heritage. He died between 180 and 185. This edition of Aristides, new to the Loeb Classical Library, offers fresh translations and texts based on the critical editions of Lenz-Behr (Orations 1-16) and Keil (Orations 17-53). Volume I contains the Panathenaic Oration, a historical appreciation of classical Athens and Aristides' most influential work, and A Reply to Plato, the first of three essays taking issue with the attack on orators and oratory delivered in Plato's Gorgias." -- Publisher's description

L'enseignement de la rhétorique au IIe siècle ap. J.-C. à travers les discours 30-34 d'Aelius Aristide by Jean-Luc Vix( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La philologie moderne a redécouvert Aelius Aristide, orateur et écrivain du IIe siècle après J.-C. après plusieurs siècles d'oubli. Mais au sein même du corpus aristidien les discours 30-34 ont été peu commentés et rarement pris en compte. Ces textes, entièrement revus et traduits pour la première fois en français, ' avec une édition critique du discours 31 ', se révèlent d'une importance scientifique primordiale dans les domaines les plus contemporains de la recherche sur l'antiquité grecque. Ils permettent de mieux connaître l'univers des sophistes des premiers siècles de notre ère, la transmission du savoir, et plus spécifiquement de la rhétorique, devenue l'enseignement principal des élites, l'héritage culturel de la Grèce classique au IIe s. après J.-C., la place occupée parles savants que sont les grammairiens, et bien entendu, quand on évoque Aelius Aristide, la force de la foi et du dieu, en particulier Asclépios, présent dans toutes les activités humaines

"This book aims at explaining the reasons why the rhetor Aelius Aristides (117-after 180 AD) became a classic in ancient Greek literature. Twenty international specialists have been invited to write a collection of essays, which offers a general overview of Aristides' activity as a writer and the reception of his work in the historical periods that followed. Contributors analyse Aristides' speeches one by one and discuss the main interpretative issues, particularly in literary and political matters. They point out emergent fields of inquiry, such as Aristides' relationship to contemporary writers or the transmission and translation of his speeches during the Renaissance"--
