Arcana mundi : magic and the occult in the Greek and Roman worlds : a collection of ancient texts by Georg Luck( Book )

52 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and held by 1,623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Magic, miracles, daemonology, divination, astrology, and alchemy were the arcana mundi, the "secrets of the universe," of the ancient Greeks and Romans. In this path-breaking collection of Greek and Roman writings on magic and the occult, Georg Luck provides a comprehensive sourcebook and introduction to magic as it was practiced by witches and sorcerers, magi and astrologers, in the Greek and Roman worlds. In this new edition, Luck has gathered and translated 130 ancient texts dating from the eighth century BCE through the fourth century CE. Thoroughly revised, this volume offers several new elements: a comprehensive general introduction, an epilogue discussing the persistence of ancient magic into the early Christian and Byzantine eras, and an appendix on the use of mind-altering substances in occult practices. Also added is an extensive glossary of Greek and Latin magical terms. In Arcana Mundi Georg Luck presents a fascinating - and at times startling - alternative vision of the ancient world. "For a long time it was fashionable to ignore the darker and, to us, perhaps, uncomfortable aspects of everyday life in Greece and Rome," Luck has written. "But we can no longer idealize the Greeks with their 'artistic genius' and the Romans with their 'sober realism.' Magic and witchcraft, the fear of daemons and ghosts, the wish to manipulate invisible powers - all of this was very much a part of their lives."

Lucan by Lucan( Book )

27 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lucan lived from 39-65 AD at a time of great turbulence in Rome. His Civil War portrays two of the most colourful and powerful figures of the age-Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great, enemies in a vicious struggle for power that severed bloodlines and began the transformation of Roman civilization. With Right locked in combat with Might, law and order broke down and the anarchic violence that resulted left its mark on the Roman people forever, paving the way for the imperial monarchy. Accessible and modern yet loyal to the rhetorical brilliance of the original, this will be the definitive Civil War of our times."--Publisher's website

Briefe aus der Verbannung : lateinisch und deutsch by Ovid( Book )

15 editions published between 1963 and 1969 in German and Latin and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Jahre 8 n. Chr. wird Ovid aus nicht bekanntem Grund von Kaiser Augustus nach Tomis am Schwarzen Meer verbannt, an den Rand der zivilisierten Welt, in eine trostlose Gegend, in der niemand Latein spricht und die er bis zu seinem Tod 17 n. Chr. nicht mehr verlassen wird. Er beginnt, verzweifelte Briefe zu schreiben - man würde sie heute "Offene Briefe" nennen - und diese nach Rom zur Veröffentlichung zu schicken. Sie sind sorgsam dichterisch komponiert, der Stil ist geschliffen und sie haben nur ein Ziel: die öffentliche Meinung in Rom für ihn einzunehmen; erfolglos, wie wir wissen. Gleichwohl sind die Briefe bewegende Dokumente frühester Exil-Literatur. Sie wurden das ganze Mittelalter über gelesen und haben das moderne Bewusstsein Europas mitgeprägt. Die neue Einführung des Münchner Altphilologen Niklas Holzberg und die neuen besonders ausführlichen Anmerkungen zu den unzähligen versteckten Anspielungen in den Briefen untersuchen sorgfältig, was an Ovids Klagen echt und was "Literatur" ist, wo er unter der Unerträglichkeit des Exils tatsächlich leidet und wo er nur gängigen Vorstellungen über die Wildnis am Pontos Ausdruck verleiht. Eingeleitet und erläutert von Niklas Holzberg
