63 Augoustakis, Antony (Ed. ) RITUAL AND RELIGION IN FLAVIAN EPIC
Oxford University Press 2013 0199644098 / 9780199644094 Hardcover Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Book is fine. DJ has 1 small tear (1 cm) to lower rear corner and very light shelfwear. ; This edited collection addresses the role of ritual representations and religion in the epic poems of the Flavian period (69-96 CE) : Valerius Flaccus' Argonautica, Silius Italicus' Punica, Statius' Thebaid, and the unfinished Achilleid. Drawing on various modern studies on religion and ritual, and the relationship between literature and religion in the Greco-Roman world, it explores how we can interpret the poets' use of the relationship between gods and humans, cults and rituals, religious activities, and the role of the seer / prophet and his identification with poetry. Divided into three major sections, the volume includes essays on the most important religious activities (prophecy or augury, prayers and hymns) and the relationship between religion and political power under the Flavian emperors. It also addresses specific episodes in Flavian epic which focus on religious activities associated with the dead and the Underworld, such as purification, necromancy, katabasis, suicide, and burial. It finally explores the role of gender in ritual and religion. ; 432 pages

William Heinemann & Harvard University Press 1961 0674991273 / 9780674991279 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (Robert Brown). Corner creasing to a few pages. ; Loeb Classical Library No. 115; 367 pages; Ausonius (Decimus Magnus) , ca. 310–ca. 395 CE, a doctor's son, was born at Burdigala (Bordeaux). After a good education in grammar and rhetoric and a short period during which he was an advocate, he took to teaching rhetoric in a school which he began in 334. Among his students was Paulinus, who was afterwards Bishop of Nola; and he seems to have become some sort of Christian himself. Thirty years later Ausonius was called by Emperor Valentinian to be tutor to Gratian, who subsequently as emperor conferred on him honours including a consulship in 379. In 383, after Gratian's murder, Ausonius retired to Bordeaux. Ausonius's surviving works, some with deep feeling, some composed it seems for fun, some didactic, include much poetry: poems about himself and family, notably "The Daily Round"; epitaphs on heroes in the Trojan War, memorials on Roman emperors, and epigrams on various subjects; poems about famous cities and about friends and colleagues. "The Moselle," a description of that river, is among the most admired of his poems. There is also an address of thanks to Gratian for the consulship. The second volume includes Eucharisticus ("Thanksgiving") by Paulinus Pellaeus.

96 Baldarelli, Beatrice ACCIUS UND DIE VORTROJANISCHE PELOPIDENSAGE
Ferdinand Schöningh 2004 3506717855 / 9783506717856 Softcover Very Good 
Light rubbing to wraps. Some pencil marginalia to text (by R. E. Fantham). Minor shelfwear. ; Wohl kaum ein anderer Mythenkomplex griechischen Ursprungs übte auf Rom eine solche Faszination aus wie die Geschichte von den Pelopiden. Welche Bedeutung man dem Thema beigemessen hat, bezeugen die zahlreichen Tragödien mit dem Titel Atreus oder Thyestes, in deren Zentrum der den sittlichen Tiefpunkt des Geschlechtes markierende Frevel der coena Thyestea stand. Die Untersuchung geht den Voraussetzungen und Bedingungen nach, die den außergewöhnlichen Erfolg gerade dieses Mythos ermöglichten. Es zeigt sich, dass die große ideologische Aussagekraft, die der Mythos im Verständnis des römischen Publikums entfaltete, auf die ganz spezifische Gestalt zurückzuführen ist, welche der Tragiker Accius dem Stoff in mehreren seiner Dramen verliehen hat. ; Studien Zur Geschichte Und Kultur Des Altertums, Neue Folge, 1.

100 Baraz, Yelena A WRITTEN REPUBLIC Cicero's Philosophical Politics
Princeton University Press 2012 0691153329 / 9780691153322 Hardcover Very Good+ in Fine dust jacket 
Minor pencil notes by R. E. Fantham. Ffep has note [from author? ]: "a gift from Yelena: Nov. 9 2012". Else fine. ; In the 40s BCE, during his forced retirement from politics under Caesar's dictatorship, Cicero turned to philosophy, producing a massive and important body of work. As he was acutely aware, this was an unusual undertaking for a Roman statesman because Romans were often hostile to philosophy, perceiving it as foreign and incompatible with fulfilling one's duty as a citizen. How, then, are we to understand Cicero's decision to pursue philosophy in the context of the political, intellectual, and cultural life of the late Roman republic? In A Written Republic, Yelena Baraz takes up this question and makes the case that philosophy for Cicero was not a retreat from politics but a continuation of politics by other means, an alternative way of living a political life and serving the state under newly restricted conditions. Baraz examines the rhetorical battle that Cicero stages in his philosophical prefaces--a battle between the forces that would oppose or support his project. He presents his philosophy as intimately connected to the new political circumstances and his exclusion from politics. His goal--to benefit the state by providing new moral resources for the Roman elite--was traditional, even if his method of translating Greek philosophical knowledge into Latin and combining Greek sources with Roman heritage was unorthodox. ; 9.1 X 6.4 X 1.0 inches; 272 pages
