Abstract

The presence of religion in Greek literature has been thoroughly analysed in the most relevant historical and philological studies. Nevertheless, there exists a lack of detailed research on the tension between “religiosity and irreligiosity” which starts to become apparent particularly in Classical Athens. Therefore, this volume aims to focus on the appearance of irreligious elements in the most important literary genres of Classical Athens: drama, oratory and historiography. After a scientific update of those contributions especially relevant to our subject, we provide commentary on selected passages from the genres mentioned above to illustrate the significance of irreligious terminology in the literature of Classical Athens. The methodological principal we have used is the verification of the irreligious terms in the texts by means of inductive criteria which form the basis of our commentaries. An epilogue completes this work: the reflections of the most significant posterior authors, from Plato to Plutarch, on the “irreligious problem”.

Abstract

Greece and Rome have been traditionally labelled as the main pillar and the cradle of Western Civilization. However, this dictum needs to be rephrased in an increasingly globalized and unfair world. In this context, it is neccesary to implement new teaching methodologies capable of underlining the importance of this legacy not only in the interest of Universities and of culture but also in other milieus apparently unrelated to Greece and Rome. Apart from providing with several proposals of teaching innovation in the field of Classics and Ancient History, this book offers insightful contributions into the role of the Graeco-Roman culture in disparate fields such as marketing, the fight for social rights, or contemporary literature and theatre.
