Properzio e l'etá augustea. Cultura, storia, arte
Proceedings of the Nineteenth International Conference on Propertius, Assisi-Perugia, 25-27 May 2012

A captivating overview of Roman poetry and society at the court of Emperor Augustus in the 2000th anniversary of his death.

The two thousandth anniversary of the death of Augustus is an important opportunity to reconsider the close relationship the poet Propertius and the town of Assisi had with the first emperor and the Roman world. With regard to Propertius, it was felt that the time had come to take stock of the growing interest in the Umbrian poet, and the speakers of the 2012 Conference (Properzio e l'età augustea: cultura, storia, arte) were invited to focus on two perspectives: the interwoven relationship between Propertius and Augustus, on the one hand, and his problematic interaction with the poets and literary circles of Rome on the other. The comparison with Augustus also called for the introduction of new data in the historical debate regarding the complex of monuments in the city of Assisi, from the Temple of Minerva, which dates back to the triumviral age, to the conspicuous epigraphic heritage of the gens Propertia, and archaeological landmarks such as the Domus Musae and the Domus del Lararium. Taking into account the multifarious stimuli hinted at these proceedings are to be read as a exchange of comparative assessments by philologists, the primary and legitimate custodians of the secretum of the poetry of Propertius , archaeologists, epigraphists and historians, called to define in dynamic terms – of imitation, assimilation and comparison – the relations the poet had with Rome and Augustus, with his hometown of Assisi and the Umbrian and Etruscan cities of the Umbrian Valley, and with the culture, art and the political groups active in triumviral and Augustan Rome.

About the mid-Fifties of 5th century AD, the Gallo-Roman aristocrat and gifted poet Sidonius Apollinaris composed an epithalamium to celebrate the marriage of his noble friends Ruricius and Hiberia. Sidonius did not know that in less than two decades he would become the bishop of Clermont-Ferrand, nor could Ruricius imagine that he would die the bishop of Limoges. Clinging to their profane models mostly represented by the epithalamia written by Statius and Claudian, the poem (carm. 11) and its preface (carm. 10) depict a world where the overwhelming presence of myth helps to keep reality aside and the skilled devices of a sophisticated poetry try to revive the formal perfection of Roman classics and their values.

Rédigé par Cicéron en 46 av. J.-C., le Brutus se présente comme une histoire de l'éloquence romaine depuis ses origines et ses sources grecques jusqu'à l'époque de sa rédaction, mais entend surtout répondre aux défis institutionnels et intellectuels qu'a fait naître la dictature de César. Le traité autorise ainsi des lectures très diverses, qui sont souvent restées isolées les unes des autres.

À travers une approche pluridisciplinaire rassemblant des contributeurs de spécialités diverses, cet ouvrage cherche à rendre compte de la réflexion cicéronienne dans toute sa richesse en examinant les enjeux historiographiques, prosopographiques, rhétoriques, philosophiques et politiques du traité. Il propose une réflexion synthétique et originale sur ce texte majeur, essentiel à la compréhension de la République tardive.

Nel 390 d.C. Decimo Magno Ausonio dedica a Latino Pacato Drepanio, appena nominato proconsole d'Africa, un eccentrico componimento sui sette sapienti. Rispetto alle composizioni catalogiche greche e latine incentrate sulle gnomai dei savi il Ludus presenta molteplici aspetti di novità: la cornice teatrale, l'impiego “anomalo” del senario giambico, i copiosi rinvii alle commedie plautine e terenziane, l'interpretatio romana del contenuto etico delle massime, il compendio di storia dell'edilizia teatrale, le numerose informazioni sui sette saggi. Per questo nella presente edizione il testo, la traduzione e il commento ai singoli versi sono preceduti da un'ampia introduzione mirata all'analisi di questi elementi; completano l'inquadramento storico e culturale dell'opera lo studio della sua tradizione e della sua fortuna umanistica e rinascimentale, l'esame dei punti di contatto con l'iconografia e il confronto con altre composizioni relative ai sapienti.

This volume is about the morphosyntactic encoding of feelings and emotions in Latin. It offers a corpus-based investigation of the Latin data, benefiting from insights of the functional and typological approach to language. Chiara Fedriani describes a patterned variation in Latin Experiential constructions, also revisiting the so-called impersonal constructions, and shows how and why such a variation is at the root of diachronic change. The data discussed in this book also show that Latin constitutes an interesting stage within a broader diachronic development, since it retains some ancient Indo-European features that gradually disappeared and went lost in the Romance languages.
