The relationship between Classical Athenian tragedy and democracy remains a much-discussed problem which deserves to be examined from as many points of view as possible. Although Sophocles has sometimes been seen as less tied to his contemporary world than other authors, his works are nonetheless closely related to their democratic context, both as a product of their time and as a mean of encouraging their audiences to reflect on major political questions.
This book explores the staging of non-élite characters in the seven extant tragedies of Sophocles and how they related to contemporary middling citizens. The structure of fifth-century Athenian society underwent deep changes between the early and late plays of Sophocles. The appearance and growing political importance of a middling socio-political group of citizens played a crucial role in the development of Athenian democracy and this phenomenon is closely linked to the way in which non-élite characters are presented in Sophocles' plays.
To lead to a better understanding of the links between Sophoclean tragedies and democracy, the book analyses the text of Sophocles' extant plays with as great care as it examines the structure of Athenian society on the basis of both historical and archaeological sources.
The performances of Sophocles' tragedies not only reflected changes that took place in the structure of contemporary society but also fostered such changes by attributing increasingly active roles to characters with whom middling citizens could easily identify.

John Duns Scotus's Notabilia super Metaphysicam comprises a series of remarks on Bks. II–X and XII of Aristotle's Metaphysics. The extant evidence points to their originally being either marginal notes on Duns Scotus's own copy of the Metaphysics or scrapbook entries linked to the relevant portions of Aristotle's text by caption letters. It appears that Duns Scotus kept adding to those notes in the course of his career.
The Notabilia offers a unique perspective on Duns Scotus's interpretation of Aristotle's Metaphysics. It also contains several original insights on key philosophical issues.
This work disappeared from circulation at Duns Scotus's death and was consequently thought to have been lost. Several cross-references to and from other writings by Duns Scotus demonstrate both that the Notabilia here edited for the first time is a genuine work by Duns Scotus and that it is his allegedly lost commentary on the Metaphysics.
The current edition is based on the two extant witnesses, manuscript M (Milano, Biblioteca Ambrosiana, C 62 Sup., f. 51ra-98rb), which contains the text in its entirety, and manuscript V (Città del Vaticano, Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, Vat. lat. 2182, f. 58vb-60ra), which contains Bks. II–IV in what is probably an older stage of the text.

ISBN : 978-3-11-052237-2

Der Begleitband zur neuen Editio Teubneriana der Carmina Profana des Dacontius (ca. 480–510 n. Chr.) unterrichtet in einem ersten Teil (Prolegomena) über Tradition und Organisation des Textes in den Handschriften. Der zweite Teil begründet die Textkonstitution, rechtfertigt notwendige Emendationen und erläutert umstrittene Stellen. In einem Anhang wird die chronologische Priorität des Dracontius gegenüber der Aegritudo Perdicae gesichert. Das Gedichtcorpus (3370 Verse) gibt Einblick in die kulturelle Spätblüte Nordafrikas unter der Herrschaft der Vandalen. Zwei Widmungsgedichte an den Grammatiker Felicianus und drei Deklamationen (Suasoria: Hercules und die Hydra, Controversia de statua viri fortis, Ethopoiie: Achill am Leichnam Hectors) führen in die spätantike Schule Karthagos, zwei autobiographisch getönte Epithalamien in die gesellschaftlichen Verflechtungen des Advokaten und Dichters. In den mythologischen Kleinepen Hylas, Helena, Medea, Orestes werden die alten Sagen vielfach abweichend von der mythographischen Vulgata unter Rückgriff auf uns verlorene Versionen neu erzählt. Als Zeugnisse einer historischen Umbruchsphase beanspruchen die Dichtungen des Dracontius in jüngerer Zeit gesteigertes wissenschaftliches Interesse

Bartolo A. Natoli, Silenced voices: the poetics of speech in Ovid, Madison-Londres, 2017.

Silenced Voices is a pointed examination of the loss of speech, exile from community, and memory throughout the literary corpus of the Roman poet Ovid. In his book-length poem Metamorphoses, characters are transformed in ways that include losing their power of human speech. In Tristia and Epistulae ex Ponto, poems written after Ovid's exile from Rome in 8 ce, he represents himself as also having been transformed, losing his voice.
Bartolo A. Natoli provides a unique cross-reading of these works. He examines how the motifs and ideas articulated in the Metamorphoses provide the template for the poet's representation of his own exile. Ovid depicts his transformation with an eye toward memory, reformulating how his exile would be perceived by his audience. His exilic poems are an attempt to recover the voice he lost and to reconnect with the community of Rome.

Introduction de : Marie-Anne Vannier, traduit par : Jean-Claude Lagarrigue, avec la contribution de Monique Gruber

Ouvrage le plus lu d'Henri Suso, L'Horloge de la Sagesse a connu un succès analogue à L'imitation de Jésus-Christ. Mais, ce livre, paradoxalement, n'était plus accessible en français, d'où l'intérêt de cette nouvelle traduction.
Ainsi pourra-t-on voir comment Henri Suso, ce disciple de maître Eckhart, propose un chemin spirituel, axé sur l'imitation du Christ dans sa Passion, dont L'horloge marque les différentes heures dans la journée. Avec cet ouvrage, qui reprend en latin le Petit Livre de la Sagesse éternelle, Suso se présente comme le Serviteur de la Sagesse éternelle et prépare déjà le tournant de la mystique rhénane à la Devotio moderna.
Pour la première fois, L'Horloge de la Sagesse est publié avec l'essentiel de l'iconographie qui lui a été consacrée, non seulement dans le manuscrit de Bruxelles, mais aussi dans nombre d'autres manuscrits, qui en scandent les différentes étapes.

Le declamazioni sono l'esercizio più complesso praticato nelle scuole di retorica, fiorite a Roma nella tarda età repubblicana e divenute durante l'impero un passaggio obbligato nell'educazione dei ceti dirigenti: esse proponevano agli allievi casi giuridici fittizi, spesso piuttosto complessi, talora decisamente inverosimili, nei quali il futuro oratore era invitato a perorare per l'una o l'altra delle parti in causa, con il solo vincolo di attenersi ai dati di partenza forniti nel tema della controversia stessa e alle norme di legge chiamate a regolare la discussione. È un prodotto conservato in misura consistente: quasi trecento testi integralmente svolti, ai quali si aggiunge una miriade di temi attestati nella manualistica retorica destinata alla formazione dei maestri.
Ciò nonostante, sulla declamazione ha pesato a lungo un giudizio fortemente critico, che vedeva in essa il frutto malato di una irreversibile decadenza della grande oratoria repubblicana, mirante alla ricerca dell'effetto esteriore o allo sfoggio di un talento oratorio tanto brillante quanto sterile. Al contrario, la retorica di scuola costituisce un osservatorio privilegiato sulla cultura romana, il cui rilievo è desumibile dal fatto di aver contribuito per secoli a formare il ceto che ha amministrato l'impero, elaborato o commentato le sue leggi, scritto la sua letteratura, educato a sua volta i propri successori. Questa breve introduzione, rivolta parimenti a studenti e studiosi, si ripromette non solo di fornire un quadro d'insieme della declamazione e delle sue principali caratteristiche, ma anche di fare il punto sullo stato degli studi, dando conto delle questioni ancora aperte, affrontando e discutendo la bibliografia ad oggi disponibile e suggerendo infine nuove possibili piste di ricerca.
