151 Hornblower, Simon & Elaine Matthews (Eds. ) GREEK PERSONAL NAMES Their Value as Evidence
The British Academy & Oxford University Press 2000 0197262163 / 9780197262160 Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. One corner very lightly bumped else fine. ; Proceedings of the British Academy 104; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 192 pages; Within the great diversity of their world, the assertion of origin was essential to the ancient Greeks in defining their sense of who they were and how they distinguished themselves from neighbours and strangers. Each person's name might carry both identity and origin - 'I am' . . . inseparable from 'I come from' . . . Names have surfaced in many guises and locations - on coins and artefacts, embedded within inscriptions and manuscripts - carrying with them evidence even from prehistoric and preliterate times. The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names has already identified more than 200,000 individuals. The contributors to this volume draw on this resource to demonstrate the breadth of scholarly uses to which name evidence can be put. These essays narrate the stories of political and social change revealed by the incidence of personal names and cast a fascinating light upon both the natural and supernatural phenomena which inspired them. This volume offers dramatic illumination of the ways in which the ancient Greeks both created and interpreted their world through the specific language of personal names.

Studies and Texts - Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies 165. Toronto Studies in Romance Philology I; 304 pages; The rapid rise of vernacular literature in medieval France, within a culture which continued to acknowledge Latin as its vehicular language, is a fact that literary historians tend too easily to take for granted. Within a relatively short period, stretching roughly from the end of the eleventh century to the thirteenth century, French and Occitan literatures acquired an output and a level of sophistication that made them the leading models for other European literatures. New genres and new subject matters appear one after the other; new ideologies (such as the concept of love developed by the troubadours) are first expressed in vernacular creations; and even learned Latin authors soon feel obliged to take notice of these developments. Should we describe this astonishing chapter of cultural history as the development of a ?lay?, or ?profane?, literature alongside a Church-dominated learned and religious one, or as the emancipation of vernacular literature from the tutorship of the Church? Is the borderline between ?lay? and ?religious? texts and genres really as clear-cut as some literary histories would make us believe? How then did these new genres of written literature come into being in a culture in which the Church held the monopoly on education, including training in writing? Did the Church as an institution play any role in the birth and expansion of vernacular literature? In the present volume, specialists from the disciplines of linguistics, literature, history and musicology address the various aspects of this complex of questions. The examples studied here are witnesses not only to a constant interaction between lay and religious cultures but also to the productive tension that resulted from the particular situation of the Church in medieval France.

199 Lanman, Charles Rockwell SANSKRIT READER Text and Vocabulary and Notes
Harvard University Press 1997 0674789008 / 9780674789005 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Light spotting to boards. Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). ; The Reader is designed to serve as an introduction to the subject for the students and to provide knowledge of Sanskrit to the teachers of high schools, academies and colleges. The work helps to correct some of the false notions which are prevalent respecting the relations of Sanskrit to other languages of the Indo-European family. It also keeps to save the literature from undue depreciation and from exaggerated praise. The author has made selections from various Sanskrit writings keeping two aims in mind-firstly to provide abundant material for thorough drill in the language of classical period; and secondly, to furnish a brief introduction to the works of the Vedic period, Mantra, Brahmana and Sutra best suited for beginners. Among the Vedic hymns (or Mantra material) are, first, some of the easiest: then some taken an account of their poetic or dramatic merit, or their ethical interest and finally some taken because of their historical importance. For the most part, a repetition of the hymns given by Delbruck and Bohtlingk in their chrestomathies have been avoided. The Brahmana pieces are chosen in such a way as to show the relation of this kind of literature to the hymns or Mantras. The selections from the Grihya-sutras are the two most interesting chapters of Indian private antiquities, the wedding and the burial service. Care has been taken that all the stanzas here citied by their first words should be given in full among the selections of the hymns. ; 1.21 x 9.22 x 6.18 Inches; 446 pages
