Were acts of sex which we would call rape and regard as a criminal offence similarly regarded in classical Athens? That is the main question posed in this book, the first in-depth study of the topic ever to be undertaken. It considers the legal terminology for rape and discusses exactly what these different terms describe. It also examines literary stories where rape and/or seduction feature as plot devices and looks at different characters' responses to them. The book's presentation makes it accessible to a wider readership of non-classicists.

In diesem Sammelband widmen sich Archaologen, Historiker und Philologen den spezifischen Formen des Phanomens Gewalt im klassischen Griechenland: Wie tritt diese aandere Seiteo der Klassik in der Bildsprache hervor? Wie wurde Gewalt in verschiedenen sozialen Raumen und Situationen praktiziert, erfahren und bewertet? Offenbar war damals - im deutlichen Gegensatz zur modernen Auffassung - Gewalt eher akzeptables Mittel zum Zweck als etwas grundsatzlich Unmoralisches. Aus dem Inhalt A.

Looking at sex and sexuality from a variety of historical, sociological and theoretical perspectives, as represented in a variety of media, Sex in Antiquity represents a vibrant picture of the discipline of ancient gender and sexuality studies, showcasing the work of leading international scholars as well as that of emerging talents and new voices. Sexuality and gender in the ancient world is an area of research that has grown quickly with often sudden shifts in focus and theoretical standpoints. This volume contextualises these shifts while putting in place new ideas and avenues of exploration that further develop this lively field or set of disciplines. This broad study also includes studies of gender and sexuality in the Ancient Near East which not only provide rich consideration of those areas but also provide a comparative perspective not often found in such collections. Sex in Antiquity is a major contribution to the field of ancient gender and sexuality studies.

The XIVth Symposium of the Society for Greek and Hellenistic Legal History took place in 2003 at Rauischholzhausen Castle near Marburg. About 40 scholars from Europe, Israel and the United States gathered for lectures and lively discussions. The scholars represented a wide and interdisciplinary range of specialities, including ancient history, economics and social history, classical philology and ancient history of law. As in the past, no general conference theme was stipulated and thus the lectures encompassed issues from early Greek history of law to the Byzantine epoch. Research concerning Hellenistic history of law, in particular Egyptian law from the Ptolemaic to the Byzantine period, was particularly well represented at this conference. The following items, to name but a few, were discussed: the importance of writing for early Greek and Oriental legislation, the magistrates in classical Athens, the administration of mines, fishery rights, the administration of temple goods, the role of the official seal of the Greek states, regional and social differences in the certification of legal transactions, as well as the legal and social background of late Roman military jurisdiction as based on papyri evidence.

Peter Liddel offers a fresh approach to the old problem of the nature of individual liberty in ancient Athens. He draws extensively on oratorical and epigraphical evidence from the late fourth century BC to analyse the ways in which ideas about liberty were reconciled with ideas about obligation, and examines how this reconciliation was negotiated, performed, and presented in the Athenian law-courts, assembly, and through the inscriptional mode of publication. Using modern political theory as a springboard, Liddel argues that the ancient Athenians held liberty to consist of the substantial obligations (political, financial, and military) of citizenship.

Lysias was the leading Athenian speech-writer of the generation (403-380 BC) following the Peloponnesian War. Athens during this period was reacting to military defeat and two brief but traumatic periods of oligarchic revolution. Political events, and the tensions of the recent past, underlie many of the speeches.

Callirhoe, Daphnis and Chloe, Letters of Chion

Author: Chariton,Longus

Publisher: Penguin UK

ISBN: 0140449256

Category: Fiction

Page: 267

A trio of tales offering an eye-opening alternative view of ancient Greece's literary culture. A fascinating counterpoint to the monumental epics of ancient Greece, Greek Fiction features three novelistic works written between the first and fourth centuries AD. Chariton's "Callirhoe"-perhaps the first novel ever written-is the stirring tale of two star-crossed lovers who are torn apart when Callirhoe is kidnapped and sold into slavery. Longus's "Daphnis and Chloe" tells the story of a boy and girl-both abandoned at birth-who grow up to fall in love and battle pirates. "Letters of Chion" is an early thriller about tyranny and political assassination. Together these works open a welcome window onto ancient Greece's little-explored legacy of prose fiction.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
