Das Bild, das die römische Elite von ihrer Gesellschaft zeichnete und das die Geschichte bis heute fortschreibt, hatte mit der Wirklichkeit der meisten Einwohner des Römischen Reiches sehr wenig zu tun. Denn die Quellen für dieses Geschichtsbild entstammen sämtlich der Oberschicht, die nur 0,5 Prozent der Gesamtbevölkerung im Römischen Reich ausmachte, aber etwa eighty Prozent des Vermögens besaß. Die restlichen 99,5 Prozent - um Christi Geburt geschätzt etwa 50 bis 60 Millionen Einwohner - sind von der Geschichte vergessen. In neun Kapiteln zeichnet der Autor ein Bild vom Leben, Arbeiten und Sterben dieser Männer und Frauen: Arme Bürger und einfache Leute, Sklaven, Freigelassene und Soldaten, Prostituierte, Gladiatoren, Banditen und Piraten.

Sozial- und Alltagsgeschichte der Antike in neuem Licht
Revidiert das gängige oberschichtenzentrierte Geschichtsbild!

Au cœur d’innombrables débats depuis des siècles, los angeles tragédie grecque alimente un flot nourri de courses. Philologues, philosophes, anthropologues, historiens ou encore psychanalystes n’ont de cesse de s’exprimer à son propos. Les uns dissertent sur le style et sa naissance. D’autres discutent de ses diverses dimensions (politiques, sociales, religieuses, culturelles), quand ils ne commentent pas inlassablement les quelques pièces parvenues in extenso jusqu’à nous. Ces dernières décennies, on doit aux Anglo-Saxons d’avoir, par le biais des « functionality reports », renouvelé l’interprétation des tragédies en montrant qu’elles étaient avant tout destinées à los angeles scène. Plus récemment, ce sont deux issues tenus naguère pour avérés qui ont été fortement remis en reason dans l. a. littérature critique : l. a. liaison tragédie-politique, d’une half ; le lien congénital et exclusif entre l. a. tragédie grecque et los angeles cité d’Athènes, d’autre half. Autres temps, autres perceptions et autres significations ? À chacun donc sa tragédie ? los angeles query ainsi formulée n’a d’autre yet que de souligner l. a. richesse des résultats obtenus dès lors que l’on swap de views et envisage d’autres angles d’attaque. Ainsi le présent ouvrage montre au lecteur le sens nouveau qui se dégage des Perses d’Eschyle, une fois l. a. pièce replacée dans le contexte commémoratif des années 470. Il met aussi en lumière l’apport de l. a. littérature fragmentaire à notre appréhension du théâtre d’Euripide et los angeles contribution de l’Ancienne et Moyenne Comédie à notre connaissance des tragédies contemporaines. Il présente enfin un bilan raisonné de ce que les tragédies des époques hellénistique puis romaine (sous le nom de « prétextes ») nous apprennent des différents avatars du genre.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Altertum, be aware: 1,0, Universität Rostock (Heinrich-Schliemann-Institut), Veranstaltung: Die Redner in der Demokratie, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: 415 v. Chr.: Die Stimmung in Athen ist angespannt, aber hoffnungsvoll, denn die Vorbereitungen zur Sizilischen day trip sind in vollem Gange. Endlich hat guy den Eindruck, die Folgen der Seuche überstanden zu haben, die Jugend ist herangewachsen und guy kann sich mit neuem Elan in den Krieg stürzen. Dann geschieht es. In einer Nacht werden quick alle Hermen beschädigt – eine Tat, so ungeheuerlich, dass die ganze Polis unter Schock steht und die Stimmung schlagartig umkippt.

Wie einschneidend warfare der Hermenfrevel für die Polis wirklich? Und standen die reason der Hermokopiden in krassem Gegensatz zu den Folgen oder muss guy annehmen, dass alles von vornherein auf einen Umsturz abzielte?

Um diese Fragen zu klären und ein wenig Licht ins Dunkel dieses Krimis zu bringen, werde ich zunächst erläutern, used to be denn Hermen eigentlich waren und used to be sie für die Athener bedeuteten. Danach kann der eigentliche Tathergang besser beleuchtet werden. Der Fall ist wirr und die antiken Autoren verstricken sich in Widersprüche, sodass wir viel auf Spekulationen und Wahrscheinlichkeiten angewiesen sind.

Nach dem Tathergang widme ich mich den Hauptverdächtigen und ihren Motiven. Die Hermokopiden waren allesamt jugendlich und leidenschaftlich, die sophistische Lehre hatte sich bereits tief in ihre Herzen eingegraben, aber es wird zu klären sein, wie groß die Bedeutung der Hetairien im Jahre 415 wirklich conflict und aus welchen Motiven die Frevler gehandelt haben könnten.
