Female religious officials in Republican Rome by Meghan Jean DiLuzio( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library 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
The chorus in dialogue: Reading lyric exchanges in Greek tragedy by Rosa Margarita Andujar( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In addition to defining and providing a taxonomy of lyric dialogues, I show that these exchanges, which blend choral and solo voices in song at critical junctures in the plot, tend either to dramatize reactions to horrific revelations or to reenact ritual laments for the dead. In both cases the tragedians stretch the boundaries of dialogue, often by staging curious exchanges that blend song and speech, at times even reversing the fundamental tragic pattern of speaking actor and singing chorus. These highly emotionally charged dialogues provide an opportunity to study how tragedy represents the strains placed on interpersonal communication, in particular the expression of strong emotion in a communal setting, while at the same time allowing us to see the experimental and self-reflexive nature of the genre

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 library worldwide
In Roman poetry, telling a Trojan story was a way of talking about Rome. This dissertation combines philological and cultural-historical approaches to write the history of Troy in Roman poetry, tracing its evolution through changing cultural contexts. As the pivot between East and West and between history and myth, Troy's fall breached temporal, cultural, and geographical boundaries. Troy's interpretive flexibility made it an ideal tool for introducing and exploring complexities in the cultural narratives of Rome, which traced its origin to Troy. The sack of Troy could be seen either as the first step in the teleological advance of Roman Empire or as the first phase in a cycle of destruction that claimed Rome's mother-city and threatened Rome as well
The moral psychology of sincerity in fifth-century Athens by Jennifer Derryberry Mann( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Sincerity is a virtue that gains salience at the junctures of human life: the juncture between the interior of the self and the exterior world of human interaction; the juncture between individual interest and group interest; and the juncture between commitment to the interests of private friends and public 'friends' (i.e. fellow citizens). One cannot conceive of sincerity in isolation and indeed each of the texts I consider gives significant weight to the role of the surrounding community in the sincerity (or lack thereof) of the individual. As Thucydides' History and the Hecuba forcefully illustrate, there are conditions in one's surrounding society under which sincerity of self is undesirable or imprudent for the individual. Yet, each of the four texts further demonstrates that to some degree sincerity of self-representation is the necessary foundation for a healthy, functional democratic society

Networks, hegemony, and multipolarity in the Hellenistic Cyclades by John Antony Neves Zuzarte Tully( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The connected studies in this dissertation draw on insights from network theory and international relations theory to reframe our economic, social, and political narratives of the Cyclades in the Hellenistic period. First, it synthesises recent work on the Hellenistic coinages of the islands, including the first study of the coinage of Paros, to identify previously unrecognised sub-regional island numismatic networks. Second, study of the proxeny network in the Cyclades confirms the historical validity of the Cyclades as a unit at this time, and demonstrates the systemic centrality of Delos to communication both inside and across the Hellenistic Cyclades. Third, it reconceptualises the sanctuary of Delos as a locus of socially embedded competitive display, and argues that dedications were required for patrons to maintain their relevance, but rarely, if ever, could grant primacy. Finally, a reanalysis of Rhodian activity in the Hellenistic Cyclades presents Rhodes as one of several contemporaneously active competing powers, rather than one of a succession of uncontested hegemons. Each study individually allows more space for islander agency, regional complexity, and the diversity of the island experience than has previously been common. Cumulatively, the result is a richer pattern of narratives which are more consistent with our current understanding of the environmental constraints inherent in Cycladic life; which are embedded in the varying regional and sub-regional economic and social structures here identified; and which allow for more diverse diachronic engagement by a range of internal and external powers
The helix of Dionysus. Musical imagery in later Euripidean drama by Aikaterini Tsolakidou( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This dissertation studies the musical imagery contained in the choral and monodic lyrics of four major later Euripidean dramas: the Trojan Women, the Phoenician Women, the Hypsipyle and the Helen. Its aim is to show that such lyrics engage in a fundamental and systematic reflection on tragedy's internal musical discourse and poetics, and to further our understanding of the tragic genre's self-conception as a form of song and mousike. A strong and recurrent focus in all these odes is on the god of theater and my reading illuminates the special value of the references to song, dance and music in connection to Dionysus

Script and song in Pindar and Aeschylus by Anna S Uhlig( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This dissertation, "Script and Song in Pindar and Aeschylus", begins from the simple fact, often obscured by political and social distinctions, that Pindar and Aeschylus were poetic contemporaries and found success with the same audiences across the Greek Mediterranean. I argue that they also shared a poetic outlook which reflected large-scale shifts in the conceptualization of poetry during their historical period. This perspective stems from their awareness of a written poetic tradition that was by then several centuries old, and which produced a corresponding concern for the future material longevity and reperformability of poetic objects. In particular, new realities of reperformance required a substantial reexamination and redefinition of the temporal conception of poetic voice to fully integrate the ever more decisive role of writing in facilitating poetic performances. I argue that Pindar and Aeschylus responded to their changing poetic reality by developing a scriptory poetics that allowed them to adjust their compositional style to reflect and reveal their poetry as fixed in writing, thus inhabiting a temporality shaped by the physical text as well as the presence of an author or an audience
Cultural exchange in Roman society: Freed slaves and social values by Rose B MacLean( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
I argue that during the early Empire, when elite values were being reconfigured to accommodate the rise of monarchy, freed slaves offered constructive models of behavior even as they were subject to intense social prejudice. Inscriptions are our best source of evidence for the beliefs and practices of Roman freedmen, and I analyze these texts alongside the literary sources to show how the virtues of deference and industry were adapted from freed culture by members of the imperial elite as they renegotiated traditional concepts of honor and glory. Using a similar method, I demonstrate how the familia Caesaris came to symbolize the principate and to propagate the ideology of empire. The ways in which freedmen represented the individual life course in their commemorative monuments are studied as a basis for the emergence of alternatives to the cursus honorum, primarily in Stoic and early Christian thought. Finally, freed slaves' inclusion in the citizen body and their complex responses to enfranchisement are shown to have been integral to the development of the Roman citizenship and to the definition of the civic community
Horace and the Greek language: Aspects of literary bilingualism by Adam Gitner( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Each chapter addresses a distinct form of bilingual interaction that has left its mark on Horace's poetry. Chapter 1 ("Splendida Verba: Elevated Borrowings") examines high-style borrowings, including loanwords, calques, and loanshifts. These foreign elements not only extend Horace's semantic range but create oppositions that are central to Latin lyric, such as between proximity and distance, native and foreign, Roman and Greek. Chapter 2 ("Sordida Verba: Ordinary and Colloquial Borrowings") studies borrowings at the lower end of the stylistic spectrum that are valuable for creating sudden shifts in register (tapinosis), describing everyday life, and personifying low-class speakers. Chapter 3 ("Verbis Felicissime Audax: Syntactic Grecisms") studies Greek syntax ("Grecisms") as a form of interference, showing how Horace puts it to use to allude to a foreign presence, elevate his register of speech, and create densely patterned word-images. Finally, Chapter 4 ("Puris Verbis: Purism and the Absence of Greek") studies the suppression of Greek in Horace's poetry, especially his avoidance of code-switching, as a manifestation of linguistic purism
