The art of biography in Antiquity by Tomas Hägg( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Greek and Roman biography embraces much more than Plutarch, Suetonius and their lost Hellenistic antecedents. In this book Professor Hägg explores the whole range and diversity of ancient biography, from its Socratic beginnings to the Christian acquisition of the form in late antiquity. He shows how creative writers developed the lives of popular heroes like Homer, Aesop and Alexander and how the Christian gospels grew from bare sayings to full lives. In imperial Rome biography flourished in the works of Greek writers: Lucian's satire, Philostratus' full sophistic orchestration, Porphyry's intellectual portrait of Plotinus. Perhaps surprisingly, it is not political biography or the lives of poets that provide the main artery of ancient biography, but various kinds of philosophical, spiritual and ethical lives. Applying a consistent biographical reading to a representative set of surviving texts, this book opens up the manifold but often neglected art of biography in classical antiquity"--. "Memoir, encomium, romance In diesem Sinne ist der ideale, ja der postexistente Sokrates der reale, und der Sokrates samt seiner Xanthippe, den etwa die photographis-che Kleinkunst zeigen konnte, ist bedeutungslos, jaim hoheren Sinne unwirklich. Adolf von Harnack 1.1 glimpses of a prehistory The single most important force for the emergence of Greek biography in the fourth century BC, it has been convincingly argued, was the personal and historical impact of the figure of Socrates, as reconstructed or invented by the Socratic writers.1 But the one individual writer -- the creative mind -- to whom Greek biography owes most is no doubt Xenophon of Athens (ca. 430--ca. 354 bc), who wrote not only a memoir of Socrates, but also a prose encomium of the Spartan king Agesilaus and a romantic Life of the Persian ruler Cyrus the Great.2 Each of his three works displays a distinct biographical strategy: the privileged viewpoint at work in the Memorabilia, the novel literary structure of the Agesilaus, and the imaginative mixture of fact and fiction in the Cyropaedia. Xenophon accordingly provides three different literary models for future life-writers to merge and develop. Now, interest in the character, acts, and lifespan of an important individual was of course not unknown in Greek society before the fourth century. Speculation about the identity of Homer, his birthplace, travels, and death, began early, as the many references show that we find scattered in poetry, drama, and early prose. The corresponding legends of Hesiod's life had a starting-point in first person statements in his own poems, those of Archilochus perhaps also in local tradition on his native island of Paros. Solon and Simonides are further, not so distant, figures who attracted early."
Greek biography and panegyric in late antiquity( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the transition from ancient to Christian Hellenism as it was expressed in the biographical and panegyric literature of the period. The essays show how literary genres focusing on individual lives help to reveal this historical process. Together, the collection presents much new research and helps show Late Antiquity not only as an important transitional period but also as an era with an identity of its own. [publisher]

Parthenope : selected studies in ancient Greek fiction (1969-2004) by Tomas Hägg( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of studies is a sequel to Hagg's popular survey, The Novel in Antiquity (1983), and a companion volume to his recent The Virgin and her Lover (with B. Utas, 2003). Parthenope offers an indexed version of his main contributions in the field, especially from the 1980s and 1990s, as well as previously unpublished work, a new introduction and a complete bibliography of the author. Apart from probing further into the literary world of Chariton, Xenophon, and Heliodoros, Hagg also widens the scope with studies on the Lives of Aesop and Apollonios of Tyana and on the oriental reception of the Greek novel."--BOOK JACKET
Gregory of Nazianzus : images and reflections by Jostein Børtnes( Book )

Studies on the history of late antique and Christian Nubia by Laurence Kirwan( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a young field archaeologist, Kirwan (1907-99) worked in Nubia from 1929-39, then went on to lead expeditions to Sudan, and become the Director and Secretary of the British Royal Geographical Society and editor of its journal. The facsimiles of 24 articles published between 1934 and 1994 focus on the history of Nubia itself and its relations with immediate neighbors, and so excludes his studies of southern Arabia and the Red Sea region and more wide ranging geographical studies. An article he wrote in 1998 is presented as an introduction. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
