Caesar's calendar : ancient time and the beginnings of history by D. C Feeney( )

24 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2,548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ancient Romans changed more than the map of the world when they conquered so much of it; they altered the way historical time itself is marked and understood. In this brilliant and exhilarating book Denis Feeney investigates time and its contours as described by the ancient Romans, first as Rome positioned itself in relation to Greece and then as it exerted its influence as a major world power. Feeney welcomes the reader into a world where time was moveable and changeable and where simply ascertaining a date required a complex and often contentious cultural narrative. He investigates the pertinent systems, including the Roman calendar, which is still our calendar, and its near perfect method of capturing the progress of natural time; the annual rhythm of consular government; the plotting of sacred time onto sacred space; the forging of chronological links to the past; and, above all, the experience of empire, by which the Romans meshed the city-state's concept of time with those of the foreigners they encoun-tered and thereby established a worldwide web of time
Traditions and contexts in the poetry of Horace by A. J Woodman( )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 2,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the whole range of the output of an exceptionally versatile and innovative poet, from the Epodes to the literary-critical Epistles. Distinguished scholars of diverse background and interests introduce readers to a variety of critical approaches to Horace and to Latin poetry. Close attention is paid throughout to the actual text of Horace, with many of the chapters focusing on reading a single poem. These close readings are then situated in a number of different political, philosophical and historical contexts. The book sheds light not only on Horace but on the general problems confronting Latinists in the study of Augustan poetry, and it will be of value to a wide range of upper-level Latin students and scholars

Beyond Greek : the beginnings of Latin literature by D. C Feeney( )

17 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and Spanish and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We take the existence of a literature in the Latin language for granted, but the emergence of this literature is a very strange moment in history. Latin literature should probably not have come into being in the form it took. This book explores the opening phase of Latin literature, from 240 to 140 BCE. The period begins with the first stage productions of Greek plays translated into Latin, which were also the first translations of Greek literary texts into any other language; it closes with the Romans in possession of a large-scale literature in Latin based on the literature of the Greeks, together with a developed historical tradition about their past and a mythology that connected them to the inheritance of the Greeks. The book uses a range of comparative evidence from both the ancient and the modern worlds in order to provide a context for understanding what the Romans did. The book recovers a great range of possibilities for cultural interaction in the ancient Mediterranean, with languages and texts sometimes interchanging quite freely and sometimes being blocked. The book argues that the Roman translation project and the resulting literature were highly anomalous in an ancient context: translation of literature was extremely rare in the world known to the Romans, and the ancient Mediterranean hosted many very successful cultures that had no kind of equivalent to the widely diffused text-based literary systems of the Greeks. The transformation of the Romans' Italian alliance into a Mediterranean imperial power provides the context for the revolution in their cultural life that led to what we call "Latin literature.""--

Female religious officials in Republican Rome by Meghan J DiLuzio( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation is organized according to type of religious office. The first four chapters focus on the Vestal order, the only Roman collegium composed entirely of female members. The fifth and sixth chapters consider joint offices filled by married couples. The most familiar officials of this type are undoubtedly the rex and regina sacrorum and the flamen and flaminica Dialis, though I argue that the remaining flamines maiores and minores also had wives who held the official religious title "flaminica." I also discuss evidence for married priests who served the Roman curiae and perhaps the communities of the Seven Hills as well. In the final chapter, I examine religious offices filled by individual women, including the sacerdotes of Ceres, Fortuna Muliebris, Bona Dea, Liber and Bacchus. The chapter concludes with a consideration of evidence for female support personnel and religious specialists who are typically excluded from studies of the Roman "priest," but were nonetheless integral to the practice of Roman religion. The material in this dissertation provides a more complete picture of official religious service at Rome, one that emphasizes its complex and gender inclusive nature

Supplication and The Classical Tradition : Vergil, Petrarch, Shakespeare, Milton by Leah Whittington( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scenes of supplication haunt the pages of Renaissance texts, dramatizing a fundamental entanglement between literature and ethics. In classical literature, the suppliant--whether a warrior on the battlefield, an exile at an altar, or a defendant on trial--used both words and gestures to arouse pity in his hearer. The recipient was obligated to evaluate the suppliant's request and decide whether to grant or refuse his plea. The reciprocity inherent in these scenes generates a flexible literary form that brings together the philosophy of the passions, the politics of mercy and justice, and the theory of rhetoric

Telling Troy : the narrative functions of Troy in Roman poetry by Brigitte Anne Benacerraf Libby( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A reference to Troy inevitably calls up an alternate map of the world and image of Rome--a parallel set of Trojan and Homeric narratives existing alongside any Roman story. The resulting gap between the Trojan past and Roman present could be stressed, minimized, or elided by poets as they wished, just as they would manage the effect of alluding to another text, which might either support or contradict their own claims. Accordingly, the project links the study of allusion and literary memory with the cultural historian's interest in the manipulation of cultural memory
