Solon of Athens : new historical and philological approaches by Josine Blok( )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 1,447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a range of innovative approaches to Solon of Athens, legendary law-giver, statesman, and poet of the early sixth century B.C. In the first part, Solon's poetry is reconsidered against the background of oral poetics and other early Greek poetry. The connection between Solon's alleged roles as poet and as politician is fundamentally questioned. Part two offers a reassessment of Solon's laws based on a revision of the textual tradition and recent views on early Greek lawgiving. In part three, fresh scrutiny of the archeological and written evidence of archaic Greece results in new perspectives on the agricultural crisis and Solon's role in the social and political developments of sixth-century Athens

Citizenship in classical Athens by Josine Blok( Book )

12 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What did citizenship really mean in classical Athens? It is conventionally understood as characterised by holding political office. Since only men could do so, only they were considered to be citizens, and the community (polis) has appeared primarily as the scene of men's political actions. However, Athenian law defined citizens not by political office, but by descent. Religion was central to the polis and in this domain, women played prominent public roles. Both men and women were called 'citizens.' On a new reading of the evidence, Josine Blok argues that for the Athenians, their polis was founded on an enduring bond with the gods. Laws anchored the polis' commitments to humans and gods in this bond, transmitted over time to male and female Athenians as equal heirs. All public offices, in various ways and as befitting gender and age, served both the human community and the divine powers protecting Athens. Proposes a new view of citizenship in classical Athens, bringing together hitherto fundamentally distinct approaches to the classical community (polis). Clarifies the debate on Greek citizenship in its historical and intellectual context, inviting engagement with modern citizenship studies. Includes in-depth discussion of key evidence in translation, with Greek texts provided in the footnotes, so that no knowledge of Ancient Greek is necessary"--Publisher description
Feasting and polis institutions( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Feasting and commensality were vital to the great resilience of the polis, Greece's most characteristic and enduring form of political organization. Exploring a wide array of commensal practices, Feasting and Polis Institutions reveals how feasts defined the religious and political institutions of the Greek citizen-state. Taking the reader from the Early Iron Age to the Imperial Period, this volume launches an essential inquiry into Greek power relations. Focusing on the myriad of patronage roles at the feast and making use of a wide variety of methodologies and primary sources, including archaeology, epigraphy and literature, Feasting and Polis Institutions argues that in ancient Greece political interaction could never be complete until it was consumed in a very literal sense"--
